We first visited Croome last year and decided to go again whilst in the area. The car park is at the restored 1940's RAF Defford buildings where the visitor centre is located, also here are the toilets, the main café and an exhibition where you can hear RAF veteran's stories about Croome and Defford. The property is unfurnished and being... More

Two friends joined me for this trip out to the country park. We went along with our three dogs and were welcomed by all of the National Trust Staff and Volunteers alike. Unusual to receive the "dogs welcome" treatment and a pleasant one at that. The park land offered some amazing views of Capability Browns stunning landscaping. With excellent photo... More

We only spent an hour and a half here. The house has nothing in it, and the grounds are uninteresting. My son and myself were bored. would rather go to coughton! Not a good place to visit at all.

I'm sorry your visit to us was disappointing. We have lots to do for children and families including a fun outdoor trail (this week Plant Hunters), a trail inside the house, explorer packs and two play areas plus special event days. We're constantly trying to improve what we offer families, however, and we'd love to hear what else we could... More

This was a lovely surprise - the main focus is the extensive grounds as the house is undergoing renovations. The house has been through so many different uses (boys' home; WWII shelter; hospital; Buddhist retreat to name a few) that I don't know what interior they'd choose to best represent it! Some period features still in place. Grounds are fabulous... More

We have given Croome two stars based on the experiences we've had since becoming National Trust members. It's true that the setting, gardens and walks are beautiful. However, we prefer to spend time looking around the houses and found Croome astonishingly austere. On mentioning this to a volunteer and saying we would like to see period furniture in place, she...

I'm really sorry to hear you had a disappointing day with us. I'm glad, however, you enjoyed the park and lake! If you're after a day out at a historic house with exquisite period furniture, Croome isn't the place to visit...yet. We don't have any collection as it was sold (apart from a fifth) in 1948 after the house was... More

We visited with friends on August 7th, we had children in our group. To have great weather is a must here, the house is odd and not many people spend much time in it. The grounds are the main attraction here especially as the house is undergoing renovation currently. There is a lot of building work going on inside. The... More

I enjoyed my time at Croome Park. The Park Seat Walk was quite pleasant and there were various things to see. I really enjoyed the artificial lake. Its hard to imagine that it was dug out by hand as well as the Rotunda, Evergreen Shrubbery, The Grotto and Sabrina and the Island Pavilion were particularly interesting. Croome Court itself its...

Very friendly, had a tour by a lady called Rosie, very entertaining, gave us a great overview of the house. Landscape good for the soul. All volunteers wanted us to enjoy our time there. There is a 1940's canteen, which is really interesting, as it was an RAF Barracks during the war. It is great to see the combined talents... More

The large open areas of ground are quite attractive if you fancy a walk but apart from the Church the other buildings were a huge disappointment and surprised that NT actually charges non-members to visit Croome Court - a large house full of empty rooms currently in the middle of a lengthy refurbishment. Was told by the lady on the... More

I'm sorry to hear your visit to the house was disappointing. We have worked hard to make the spaces as interesting as possible with guided tours where you can find out more about the house's eclectic history. We don't have any contents at present as most of the collection was sold in 1948. However, we are planning the return of... More
