About
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.

Great afternoon, fantastic staff
Oct 2021 • Couples
We visited Crome Court as NationalTrust members. The weather was thankfully good which meant we could explore the grounds as well as the house. First the church which was interesting and made a good prelude to the rest of the things on offer. The house is set in very nice grounds designed by capability brown. You can explore the basement, ground and first floors which although not festooned with exhibits are brought to life by very informed and friendly nt staff. From there we made our way to the rotunda which is preserved very well. Then we set off for a very pleasant walk to the park seat then onto the temple greenhouse. The walk around the lake was also excellent, very well stocked varieties of evergreen shrubs and trees. Lastly we stopped off at the cafe and had a very nice vegetarian pasty and cup of tea before ending the visit at the RAF Defford museum, small but interesting and again with nt staff on hand to talk through the history. Thoroughly enjoyed the day.

We loved it
Oct 2021 • Couples
My husband and I visited Croome while we were staying in the area, it was a great visit and the grounds are superb so we made the most of it and walked around the estate. The house is good and the staff are very knowledgable and are happy to offer loads of information on the history of the house. We loved it, thank you.

Staff members going above and beyond
Oct 2021 • Couples
My sister got engaged here over the weekend and the staff were so amazing in making it happen. Huge thank you to Becky, Gee, Liz and Abbie who went above and beyond to make it as private as possible and took time out of their day to make the moment as special as it could be for my sister/future brother in law, genuinely wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for you all.
Thank you all so much again!

Miss leading price £5 per person does not include the other £12 to the national trust
Sep 2021
Wasted journey today. Wanted to visit the walled garden advertised at £5 per person, but you need to pay £12 per person to croome court (national trust) just to be able to visit the walled garden. So for 2 people that would be £34. We only wanted to visit the walled garden so thought we would only need to pay £10. So we left very disappointed.

An enjoyable visit, but the café generates too much synthetic waste.
Sep 2021
We enjoyed visiting Croome Court, but were very disappointed when we visited the café at the entrance.
We had a cream tea each, which came in two cardboard and cellophane boxes.
Within each box was a scone, a small pot of jam, a plastic tub of cream, a plastic knife and paper napkin.
This made us feel guilty because we generated quite a bit of non-recyclable waste.
Surely plastic cutlery should be a thing of the past...?
And why are the cardboard and cellophane boxes deemed necessary...?
We thought the NT would be more aware that there is no Planet B...!

A lovely visit
Sep 2021 • Family
Visited Croome Court with my father and daughter last week. Very good, disabled friendly place to visit. Took advantage of shuttle transport down to house and staff there then got my father who was in a wheelchair up two flights of steps with their 'stair lift' so we could all access the house together. House had good displays about it's history and part it played during WW2. Staff called for accessible shuttle to come back down so we could return up to area where we first come in. Had lunch in cafe there, had to queue but not for too long. Service good from all staff on day we visited, they were very helpful and we had a lovely day there.

Slow coffee shop
Sep 2021 • Solo
Such a slow service in the cafe. Why are National Trust coffee shops always like this? It's a beautiful spot and it's not even busy.

Not your usual National Trust property
Aug 2021
This is not your average National Trust property. I felt that the £12 entry fee for non-members was expensive for what you got compared to other properties. The house is a 'work in progress', largely empty with just a few exhibits, the gardens are pleasant enough but nothing special. Much of the parkland is open to anyone and you could see most of it for free. If you are a non-member you might feel better off by visiting another NT property.

Expensive for What You Get
Aug 2021 • Couples
Not really sure what I paid £24 for for entry for two as most of the area was accessible by public footpaths that criss-crossed the estate.

Rip off prices- nothing much here to see .
Aug 2021
Grossly over priced - house has very little to see in it, A few paintings, mirrors and a few pieces of pottery , half the house is filled with crates , with no idea of what is in them, Church, pretty basic, nothing special to see , RAF museum is a bit of a let down, few exhibits, mainly again photos telling you about it, but not much in the way of interesting things, although there is a crashed spitfire merlin engine, if thats your interest. Walled garden an extra £5 each, to see, but was closed the day we went. Parkland mainly rough cut grass , a few specimen bushes and trees and a duck lake. ideal for taking a dog for a walk, but you could find somewhere free for what you get. I came away feeling totally robbed of £25 (for two) . Will thoroughly read reviews of any NT place i go to in future .
