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.

    Absolutely loved our stay and already recommended to a friend who is heading over to UK next year.

    Beautiful apartment

    Beautiful apartment -- large and well-equipped; comfortable beds; new bathroom (the power shower is great!). The welcome tray of tea/coffee with milk in the fridge was wonderful. Gorgeous views overlooking the deer park and croquet lawn. Our whole visit was utterly magic, and I'd happily stay again. A word of advice to anyone staying here - pack your things in several small bags rather than try to haul large suitcases up and down those spiral stairs.

    A beautiful, calm, serene experience

    A beautiful, calm, serene experience. Amazing to be in the property and having the grounds virtually to ourselves in the evening. Description of the steep spiral staircase nearly put us off but if we could do it anyone could-we have 4 children 6, 4, 2 and baby! Interiors not as high a spec as other NT cottages but the grounds are the best ever. Restaurant great for lunch, and take away sandwiches for tea on the croquet lawn-what more could you want?

    The most magical experience was seeing the deer who came close to the house in the evening

    We stayed at Charlecote with our two teenage girls, Coralie and Sarah. We found it a fantastic base for touring, with lots to do. The house itself is interesting, and the staff are very friendly. The most magical experience was seeing the deer who came close to the house in the evening when the visitors had gone home. Picnicking and croquet were also good fun! We'd love to return soon
