Heart of England

The industrial heart of England now offers one of Britain's loveliest National Parks, the Peak District, a region of outstanding natural beauty with spectacular and contrasting scenery. Moorland, ancient oak woodlands, bustling market towns and pretty villages are easily accessible from some of our major cities. Some of the Trust's finest properties are in the area, including High Peak Estate, straddling the Yorkshire-Derbyshire border, Lyme Park mansion and gardens, surrounded by a medieval deer park and Hardwick Hall, hardly changed since its creation in Elizabethan times. To the south is the gentler area of the Cotswolds and its neighbouring county of Warwickshire. With its gently rolling countryside of hills and valleys, picturesque stone villages and fine houses, this beautiful area now offers the visitor a glimpse of traditional English life. The National Trust owns some of the loveliest countryside in the area, some fine houses and important gardens. There is a huge and varied choice from Tudor Snowshill Manor, with its eclectic collection of musical instruments, clocks and Japanese armour to Hidcote Manor Gardens, famous for its rare trees, shrubs and outstanding herbaceous borders. Other Trust places in the area include Newark Park with its stunning views, the Sherborne Park estate, while the Buscot and Coleshill estates in west Oxfordshire are set in 7,500 acres of rolling farmland and woodland. The Iron Age hill-fort of Badbury Hill offers superb views over the Upper Valley south to White Horse Hill and the Berkshire Downs.

    What a splendid surprise to find the Christmas tree and decorations plus a bottle of wine.

    What a splendid surprise to find the Christmas tree and decorations plus a bottle of wine. As a winter visit Hanbury Hall was not open but this almost made the grounds ours. (and the sheep) From the moment we arrived it felt like our own property. The splendid dining kitchen, beatifully furnished lounge with the fun of the open fire, a most comfortable bedroom and a loo with a view in the bathroom. Do visit Droitwich Spa the town as well as the salt spa itself. What an hedonistic experience. Try it and see!

    Highly recommend The Lodge to everyone.

    This was our first NT cottage stay and definitely won't be the last. Every detail of the cottage was well thought out, and the landscape/views are amazing. Highly recommend The Lodge to everyone.
