Overview

A stunning, Rococo Gothic style house, bursting with history, artistry and beauty, with charming historic gardens and extended parkland, set within 4000 acres of Warwickshire countryside.

Emma Holman-West is the ninth generation West to call Alscot Park home, and passed into her family in 1747, when it was purchased by James West (1703-1772), Joint Secretary to the Exchequer, President of the Royal Society and Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, who bought Alscot Park to house his wonderful collection of art. In 1762 James West retired and moved from London to live at Alscot with his family.

Using her design experience, eye for detail and inherited love and appreciation of art, Emma has injected her own distinctive style into the property. At the same time as preserving its layers of history, Emma along with her team continue to develop features within the house and garden, giving it a modern-day twist.

Alscot Park's history and features

Alscot, situated 3 miles south of Stratford upon Avon, is a thriving country Estate set rurally within almost 4,000 acres of beautiful Warwickshire countryside, and headed by Emma Holman-West.

Alscot passed into Emma’s family in 1747, when it was purchased by James West, MP and Joint Secretary to the Exchequer, who bought Alscot Park to house his wonderful collection of art.

Emma is the ninth generation West to call Alscot Park home, a magnificently preserved Grade I Rococo gothic style house set in stunning parkland and countryside surroundings.

Through Emma’s leadership and innovation Alscot has adapted and changed to suit 21st century needs, and those of the local community and surrounding area. Today, Alscot offers a wide range of commercial and residential opportunities.

The Estate’s portfolio includes 125 residential properties and 140 business premises, ranging from 100 sq. ft. to 150,000 sq. ft. and comprises offices, studios, workshops, warehouses, industrial and manufacturing space, all with ample car parking and close to major transport links, and in turn employing over 1000 people on site.

A word from the owner

The house and garden is run in house by a small team. Emma is very innovative and forward thinking and very much open to new and exciting ideas. Alscot Park does not stand still and changes with the times.

Fun Facts

In 1767 West noted a visit to Alscot by 'Mr Brown', but there is no indication whether this refers to Lancelot Brown, more commonly known as Capability Brown.
