Description:

Step into what remains of a secret wartime air base, now our Visitor...

Step into what remains of a secret wartime air base, now our Visitor Centre, where thousands of people lived and worked in the 1940s. Walk through a masterpiece in landscape design, which is 'Capability' Brown's very first, which has been painstakingly restored for over 18 years from what was once a lost and overgrown 18th century parkland. Explore the park and lakeside to find out what conservation project we're working on this year.

Find Croome Court, the home of the Earls of Coventry, at the heart of the park which has been patiently waiting for its revival. Its time has come this year as the faded house is repaired and reserviced to be able to open up all four floors in 2016. This year explore two floors of un-restored spaces, see what the builders are working on and climb the scaffold for a cup of tea on Sky Cafe.

We visit the same time every year, it's our annual tradition, the grounds are beautiful and ideal for long walks and picnics. This year the egg hunt is too organised and confined to a smaller area, meaning everyone and the children were all squashed together. You couldn't stop without someone else's family gathering around you thinking you had found another... More

We visited Croome on an overcast Good Friday. The car park was packed and we were concerned it would be too busy there. No need to worry! Once we were in and past the main cafe the crowds disappeared and we walked around the stunning grounds undisturbed by others. The view of the Malverns from the top of the hill... More

We had a day at Croome Court. We went a few years ago & it was sad how the house had been let go of, we still loved it though. The estate is so beautiful & the views are lovely. The house has been through lots of change but now under the national trust - thank god ! The volunteers... More

With plenty of stunning views let alone the church and Croome Court itself, I thoroughly enjoyed today an hours walk around the grounds with dogs. There are plenty of walking routes surrounding to allow you to soak up the beautiful views around you. Next visit will be definitely going into Croome Court but thank you for allowing us to enjoy...

Interesting visit and good to see how it has changed over the last 20 years, but the house feels messy in terms of the way it is organised and displayed. This means that it never really feels like it is communicating the stories the National Trust is so keen to tell at this property.

We spent a whole day walking round the grounds and house and learning about the use of the site during the war. All very interesting although the house is undergoing some transformation at the moment and not much to see but don't let that put you off, there is so much more to see and do. We found that there...

This is a National Trust property not to be missed. There are superb views from all points of the extensive grounds, laid out by "Capability" Brown. Some parts of the walk around the walk can be muddy in wet weather. The house is undergoing progressive renovation and is a fascinating place to visit, particularly when interpreted by the knowledgeable staff... More

Very interesting - suggest a whole day's visit as combines 3 major features, all of which are recommended to include on a visit 1) AMAZING house with interesting and unique architecture (2 houses in 1), lots of history (airbase/boys boarding school/Hari Krishna retreat). Highly recommended is to catch a tour of the house - Tom was very knowledgeable- thank you... More

Lovely grounds to walk around and Mansion was interesting to see. Not your typical NT property, very much work in progress. Well worth going on one of the tours of the top floor of the house. Ideal for children with lots of activities for them to do. Wear comfy shoes as lots of walking, but they do provide transport between... More

Came here with my son for the Easter egg hunt. On the whole the hunt was good, if over a little quickly. The food at croome court was poor and overpriced. Not too much choice for children, and of a lower standard then other national trust properties.
