The Parkland

The parkland at North Mymms comprises 120 acres of deer park surrounding the Grade I-listed Jacobean mansion house. The park is dotted with well-landscaped mature trees and punctuated by small ponds and a stream. The ancient icehouse that once serviced the manor house remains. There are views of the manor house from almost everywhere in the park.

The approach to the parkland is marked by two Jacobean-style red-brick lodge houses, East Lodge and Octagonal Lodge. The St Mary’s entrance to the parkland is down the old back drive, an attractive lime tree-lined avenue.

Main Park

The main park consists of 40 acres of parkland that surrounds the mansion house on two sides, running right up to the balustrade that marks the end of the formal gardens.

  Within Main Park is the old icehouse, built at the end of the 18th Century, where the owners of the mansion house stored ice cut from local ponds in the winter, to be used in the heat of the summer.

Church Park
  Church Park is the 14 acres of parkland that run around the North side of St Mary’s church. Close to the church and suitable for smaller, more intimate events. There is a small pond and a really special view over the ha-ha into the side of the mansion house.

Deer Park

The 66-acre Deer Park is to the North of the main park. Further removed from the mansion house and slightly elevated it commands great views of both Main Park and the mansion house.
