Packwood House - National Trust

Much-restored Tudor house, park and garden with notable topiary
The house was originally built in the 16th century, yet its interiors were extensively restored between the First and Second World Wars by Graham Baron Ash to create a fascinating 20th-century evocation of domestic Tudor architecture.

Packwood House contains a fine collection of 16th-century textiles and furniture, and the gardens have renowned herbaceous borders and a famous collection of yews.

Find peace and quiet in the stunning gardens and relax among the beautiful borders. Lose yourself in the Yew Garden or visit the newly restored Kitchen Garden, and pick up some ideas for your own plot.

A fireplace in the bathroom, I assume for heat - we have a radiator!

Yet another bedroom and another fireplace - this might explain why so many chimneys were needed.
