A COUNTRY house and gardens with a famous fountain is open every day this half-term.

Witley Court and Gardens in Worcestershire is open every day between February 10 and February 18 to families looking for a half-term day out.

A spokesperson for English Heritage said: "What was once a magnificent stately home is today an incredibly picturesque ruin set in 40 acres of grounds, just waiting to be explored.

"Stroll through the winding woodland paths before reaching the house and its formal gardens – including a grand fountain with statues of Perseus and Andromeda. For grown-ups, there is an audio tour that dives more into the history of the site before the fire that gutted its interiors in 1937.
