It has taken ten centuries and the vision of many individuals for the magnificent Country Park to reach its present splendour. Come and explore its beautiful historic parkland, woodlands and lakeside walks. With around 500 acres to discover it's more than a day out!
A large part of the site is classified as a Site of Special Scientific Interest, SSSI, as recognition of its importance to wildlife including its fantastic heronry supporting 60% of Warwickshire's population. The historic parkland designed by Capability Brown is listed on the English Heritage register of historic parks and gardens.
