Croome Court
Croome Court
Croome Court was built in the 1750s and 1760s for the 6th Earl of Coventry. It remained the family home until the Second World War. For many years after the war the court was a private school, and then in the early 1980s it belonged to the Society of Krishna Consciousness. The parkland the court is set in is of historical importance being the first park landscaped by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown. The park is now in the care of the National Trust. Croome Court was purchased by the Croome Heritage Trust in December 2007. The house opened to the public in September 2009.
