Newark Park is of Tudor origins, with parts having been remodelled in the 1790's. It was originally a hunting lodge. The house sits in an estate of 700 acres and is a Grade I listed. The house and estate have been in the care of the National Trust since 1946. It is open to the public.
It is reputedly haunted by the sounds of disembodied voices, footsteps and rustling fabric. Dogs have reacted to something unseen by the human eye. Witnesses have reported cold spots. A photograph taken during the 1980's on behalf of a magazine allegedly shows what is described as a "figure walking across the room".
