Newark Park, Gloucestershire


  • Located in Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, South West England, England
  • The southern section of the Cotswolds is home to a number of 'Parks' or country estates*. Newark Park is a National Trust property located on the southern edge of the Cotswolds escarpment providing huge views into Wiltshire and Somerset. On a clear day, you'll see down to the Mendip Hills AONB. Closer, on the escarpment, is the distinctive Somerset Monument. The historic wool town Wotton-under-Edge is nearby
  • Newark Park House is sited on top of this escarpment. The land here was once owned by Kingswood Abbey until the Dissolution of the Monasteries. It was acquired by Nicholas Poyntz who built 'Newe Worke' or Newark primarily as a hunting lodge. In later centuries it passed into different ownership and expanded into the property you see today. There are gardens and a large parking area with public toilets. The terrace on the south side of the house provides particularly stunning views
  • Other houses and estates in this area include Dyrham Park. We'd also recommend visiting Westonbirt Arboretum
  • There are various trails that take you into the deer park. This runs down the side of the steep hillside into the valley
  • *For example, if you look at the Ordnance Survey Landranger 162 'Gloucester & Forest of Dean' map, you'll see the southern section of the Cotswolds escarpment represented by tightly packed contour lines. On, or around, this escarpment are Newark Park, Ozleworth Park, Lasborough Park and Stancombe Park. Perhaps the most famous is Dyrham Park just south of the M4
