About

Glorious house, surrounded by gardens, moorland and deer park

Nestling on the edge of the Peak District, Lyme Park was once home to the Legh family and, in its heyday a great sporting estate.

In this 200th anniversary year of the death of Jane Austen, Lyme turns back the clock to the Regency era, where you can uncover the fascinating story of Thomas Legh, Lyme's very own Regency Indiana Jones. Dress up in Regency costume, and enjoy the sounds of period music and events, including Regency dancing and military re-enactments. Lyme sits on the edge of the Peak District against a backdrop of sweeping moorland and with extensive views across Manchester and the Cheshire Plain. The house is renowned for its elegant interiors and beautiful gardens.

The 1,300 acre estate with its medieval herd of red and fallow deer offers fantastic walks and stunning views.

For a more tranquil walk explore the Edwardian rose garden, ravine garden or luxurious herbaceous borders next to the reflecting lake where a certain Mr Darcy met Miss Bennett in the BBC production of 'Pride and Prejudice'.

Children can let off steam in Crow Wood Playscape with its giant slide, badger den and rope walks, whilst the nearby Timber Yard Coffee Shop offers delicious hot and cold snacks, soups and range of cakes.

Visit the Ale Cellar for a selection of lunches to chose from including soup, sandwiches, sweet and savoury cream teas. Try a bottle of wine or locally brewed beer with your meal.

    A National Trust site, so be prepared for high costs if you're not a member. The house is certainly worth a visit. Some fantastic artwork and artefacts. For the kids, there was also a great Lego... Read full review
