About Lyveden New Bield
This magnificent ruin is a rare romantic survival from the great Elizabethan period. The landscape on which the relic of this majestic house sits, delights and captivates all who see it, and the house rising on a mound close to the bend of the river fires the imagination as how this superb unfinished house was intended to look had it reached completion. Throughout the 15th century, Lyveden New Bield belonged to the Tresham family and it was this family who purchased additional land for the estate to use as sheep pasture, and for the development of a garden set to rival the grandest in the county.
Following the death of Sir Thomas Tresham in 1605 the house was left to the mercy of the elements and what we see today is an almost untouched ruin from four centuries ago. Even without its roof, windows and floors, the house standing on a near perfect landscape of mounts, terraces and moats, complimented by a picturesque orchard evocative of the period in which it was laid out, presents nothing less than a striking picture of loveliness.
Lyveden New Bield is in the care of the National Trust, visitors can enjoy special event days, a cafe for refreshments, guided tours and there is a shop for the purchase of souvenirs.
