Well worth exploring with lovely rural walks to extend your day. The house is actually still lived in,so with the expert guides the past is bridged to the present very successfully. The house has lots of interest including magnificent historic stables. There is a small tea room with simple home bakes and lovely views if you're lucky enough to visit... 更多
The weather couldn't dampen a beautiful day at the garden party this year. A quintessential English garden party, tombolas, brass bands and cake stalls, just perfect.
We sometimes use the public footpath through the estate to walk the dog - there can be livestock so take care. Its a pleasant walk but nothing seems to be going on. Last weekend we noticed the private grounds had been opened for 6hrs and any proceeds donated to charity. The weather was beautiful and the many walled gardens were... 更多
Took my Scottish friends - ex school mates to the Hall as it is local and they were visiting me in Cheshire for the first time. Our tour guide David was well informed and we all liked the quirkiness of the place. Very different from many old houses. A really interesting history. The afternoon tea was wonderful - served by... 更多
Most historic houses, at least in this part of the world, are either visitor attractions pure and simple - think classic National Trust stately home! - or privately owned properties with a "tourist route" of formal rooms open for inspection and a corner or a wing in which the family still lives, closed off behind doors marked "Private".

We finally managed it yesterday. Was it worth the wait? Absolutely!! We visited the gardens only, leaving the magnificent looking house until next time. As you enter the... 更多
A beautiful Country House set in delightful Gardens with a Church in the grounds, the Church holds a few secrets and is only opens a few times during the week. A visit in Spring or Summer sees a magical display from the Azaleas and other flowers in the gardens.
We didn't have the tour of the hall so I can't comment on that. The gardens are very large and the most striking thing about them is the large amount of yew topiary which is very well kept. Some of it is massive and architectural in effect. For example there are huge yew 'walls' around what I presume to be... 更多
Visited here with our HHA card. Had a guided tour with a pleasant and knowledgable guide, viewed several rooms with different styles and wonderful very old furniture. Found it a bit strange going into bedrooms which are used - felt intrusive. There is a cafe and a very old stables and gardens.
