Packwood house a national trust home.

Packwood House

A lot of the National Trust properties are shut down due to the ongoing pandemic so you currently have to book a times ticket to gain entry. This list was to Packwood house that lies on the county of Warwickshire. The house dates from 1550 and has substantial gardens that you could freely walk around, just nice to finally get out and about . 

From Wikipedia

The house began as a modest timber-framed farmhouse constructed for John Fetherston between 1556 and 1560. The last member of the Fetherston family died in 1876.[3] In 1904 the house was purchased by Birmingham industrialist Alfred Ash.[4]It was inherited by Graham Baron Ash (Baron in this case being a name not a title) in 1925,[3] who spent the following two decades creating a house of Tudor character. He purchased an extensive collection of 16th- and 17th-century furniture, some obtained from nearby Baddesley Clinton. The great barn of the farm was converted into a Tudor-style hall with sprung floor for dancing, and was connected to the main house by the addition of a Long Gallery in 1931.[5]

In 1941, Ash donated the house and gardens to the National Trust in memory of his parents but continued to live in the house until 1947 when he moved to Wingfield Castle.[6]
