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.

Comments from past visitors

  • Kara McDonald and Geneve Mantri
    Absolutely delightful

    This was our first NT vacation and it was absolutely delightful. The sheep and pheasants roaming the grounds add to the character. Wonderful walks down to a small canal. We used Hanbury as a base for seeing Stratford-upon-Avon and even made day trips to Lyme Park and Chatsworth. Staying at Hanbury is like being lord and lady of the manor. Enjoyed a delightful lunch outside at Hanbury's cafe and picnicked more than once on the grounds. Highly recommend

    This flat for two is delightful

    This flat for two is delightful, the views are wonderful and the grounds, which are yours to walk in when the house is shut, are splendid. The flat itself is all that could be desired for a really relaxing break. Shouldn't be telling you all this as those in the know should keep it to themselves in case it becomes too popular!

  • Peter Avis
    This is our 8th visit to Hanbury

    This is our 8th visit to Hanbury and it has been no less enjoyable than all the others. We very much approve of the new decorations, especially the mauve bathroom and still feel very much at home in the flat. Highlights this time included a return visit to the splendid Avoncroft Museum and a trip to delightful Winchcombe.
