Parham House is a superb Elizabethan family house with award-winning gardens. The house itself, still a family home, is filled with rare works of art, including perhaps one of the finest collections of seventeenth century embroidery in the country. The award-winning gardens comprise of beautiful Pleasure Grounds and a four-acre Walled Garden. Among the many sights to see are the lake with Cannock House, the recently-restored summer house, alongside it; herbaceous borders; a glasshouse; vegetable garden; orchard and a 1920s Wendy House. An area of the Parham parkland is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and the gardens and park are home to fallow deer, rare lichen, English crickets and plenty of other native wildlife.
