The stunning gardens of Prestwold Hall are just as breathtaking as the interior, extending out from the main house into beautiful countryside.
Set in 2,500 acres of land in the heart of the Leicestershire Wolds, Prestwold Hall offers spectacular views of gently rising parkland to the south.
Having rebuilt the Hall in the 1760s, Charles James Packe also created the parkland around it. This description, written by English printer and author John Nichols, paints a beautiful image of the area surrounding Prestwold Hall:
“The house, in every point of view shews itself delightfully shaded with wood, being ornamented with large plantations of forest-trees; Mr Packe having, perhaps, planted and raised within the last thirty years, more trees than any gentleman in this county.”
