Glorious house, surrounded by gardens, moorland and deer park

Nestling on the edge of the Peak District, Lyme Park was once a great sporting estate and home of the Legh family for over 500 years.

The house is renowned for its elegant interiors and beautiful gardens, against a backdrop of sweeping moorland with extensive views across Manchester and the Cheshire Plain. In 2020, it hosts an exhibition uncovering the history of the Lyme Missal, the most important printed book in the National Trust’s collection.

The 1,400 acre estate with its medieval herd of red deer is a paradise for bird-watchers and wildlife spotters, and hosts regular guided walks and running events. For a more tranquil stroll, explore the Edwardian rose garden, ravine garden or orangery next to the reflecting lake where a certain Mr Darcy met Miss Bennett in the BBC production of 'Pride and Prejudice'.

There's plenty of room for little ones to let off steam, whilst the Timber Yard Cafe offers hot and cold snacks, soups, and a range of cakes.

Visit the Ale Cellar for a selection of hot meals made with local produce or book into the Salting Room for a luxury afternoon tea.

      A lovely house to have a walk around but for me the grounds and the gardens were the best, they are absolutely huge, you can spend hours just walking around, plenty of toilet and cafe facilities... Read full review
