A half-mile drive leads up to the country house of Hoards Park. This Elizabethan building with Victorian additions is Grade II-listed. Notable features include flying buttresses, Elizabethan chimney stacks, hand-carved woodwork, and windows with stone mullions.The house is surrounded by over 6 hectares of parkland, with extensive lakes, and a substantial 17th-century garden wall remains standing.
Hoards Park was part of the Apley estate from the late-16th century. The Apleys restored the house in 1873, and eventually sold it on in 1999. Subsequent refurbishment took place, in readiness for its next function as hotel. Hoards Park has been a private residence since 2011.
