Croome Court is a mid-18th-century Neo-Palladian mansion surrounded by extensive landscaped parkland at Croome D'Abitot, near Pershore in south Worcestershire, England. The mansion and park were designed by Lancelot "Capability" Brown for the 6th Earl of Coventry, and were Brown's first landscape design and first major architectural project. Some of the mansion's rooms were designed by Robert Adam.
The mansion house is owned by Croome Heritage Trust, and is leased to the National Trust which operates it as a tourist attraction. The National Trust owns the surrounding parkland, which is also open to the public.Peopleton

It is also the location of Pershore railway station. The village has a church, a grocery store and a pub. It also has a first school and a middle school (both rated Good by Ofsted); pre-school activities take place in the village hall.
The name is thought to come from 'Penda's fen' after the Mercian King Penda, who was probably born in the nearby Cotswolds. David Rudkin's TV play Penda's Fen (1974) was set here and also references this fact.
