Overview

Expect the unexpected. Incredible innovation, devastating loss, remarkable survival and magnificent restoration. All in one place There’s more than meets the eye at Croome. A secret wartime airbase, now a visitor centre, was once a hub of activity for thousands of people. Outside is the grandest of English landscapes, ‘Capability’ Brown’s masterful first commission, with commanding views over the Malverns. The parkland was nearly lost, but is now great for walks and adventures with a surprise around every corner. At the heart of the park lies Croome Court, once home to the Earls of Coventry with four floors to explore. The 6th Earl of Coventry was an 18th century trend-setter and today Croome follows his lead by using artists and craftspeople in the house to tell the story of its eclectic past in inventive ways, perfect for making new discoveries.

Visiting in the area for a few days but not being especially interested in historic houses our attention was drawn by references to the RAF connection. Car park crowded on a Sunday with lots of small children and dogs so I wondered whether we had...More

The walled garden, £5 entry as not owned but the national trust is well worth a visit if it is open. Croome itself was a lovely place. Super walk down to the large house. Museum was interesting.

Croome has been on our list of 'places to visit' for a couple years, so, with this week's lovely weather, we decided it was time. The house is in a lovely setting, next to the river which Capability Brown had dug, and with the Malvern...More

Thoroughly enjoyed visit to Crome. Expected stately home but got bonus of a very interesting RAF Museum explaining wartime airfield. A lot of interesting personal accounts of both men and women who served during wartime. The house is somewhat empty but has a rather ghostly...More

Although the house is empty what we really enjoyed was the fact that you could go ABSOLUTELY EVERYWHERE, this doesn't happen very often when you go to a National Trust and we are always thinking about what might be behind a certain door or up...More

I found this place fascinating, a great day out for the family. It’s not one of those picture perfect stately homes but a work in progress after a number of different lives. Nice to walk around a stately home without worrying about the kids touching...More

Having recently moved to the area we decided to visit and admire the garden and the daffodils. All very disappointing. The view of the grounds is impressive, they are a safe playground for children and that's all. We have been looking for impressive shows of...More
