Newark Park stands proud on top of the Cotswold escarpment, looking down into the Ozleworth valley and to the Mendips beyond. The Newark estate is situated in an unspoilt corner of Gloucestershire, with barely a sign of modern life visible in any direction.
The ‘New Worke’ was built in 1550 by Nicholas Poyntz, previously an influential English courtier to Henry VIII. The house, garden and estate would grow and develop over 350 years, followed by a short but grave period of decline, to then be lovingly restored by a Texan architect in the 1970s and 80s.
The architecture of Newark House reveals its intriguing history, with a quirky collection of furnishings and impressive views completing its homely feel.
The garden and estate showcase a range of seasonal specials, such as snowdrops, aconites and daffodils, wild garlic, summer borders and autumn cyclamen. A beautiful setting with splendid views of the Cotswold countryside, waiting to be discovered and explored.
A place of architectural intrigue, quaint gardens and sprawling parkland there is much to see and do at Newark.
