Lyme Park, Disley

(1,100+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area
Lyme Park encloses more than 400 hectares (1,000 acres) of English countryside, flower gardens, and a lavish mansion hall. The home's architecture features both Elizabethan and Baroque elements and was part of the Legh estate for over 600 years. The park and structures are open to visitors as part of the National Trust. As you explore the grounds on foot or by bicycle, try to spot medieval breeds of red and fallow deer. The Crow Wood playground is a hit with children, while adults often enjoy seeing the locations where "Pride and Prejudice" was filmed. Don’t forget to take home some local venison or one of the many varieties of cakes.

  • Beautiful house, gardens and extensive grounds. Huge deer population easy to find. Fabulous visitor facilities including cafe, shop and excellent children's adventure playground. Very popular with walkers.
  • Really nice national trust place. Great house to explore and well kept gardens. You can walk for hours round the estate and area.
  • Grounds and house are quite expensive to get into, but the views and features are stunning. A must see during the warm weather, and great for a lovely picnic spot. A hug play park for the younger children and lots of ice cream available. Huge amounts of wildlife too. Get there early in the day to make the most of the endless estate and to grab a parking space!
  • Great place for picnic, walk and take the kids to, the cafe, the ice cream shop is nice ice. Play are for kids is made of load of wood and they can build their own tent with tree twigs found on the floor. Great place!
  • Good walks, with some pram friendly paths around the pond and gardens. For longer walks, walking shoes recommended. Great kids play area with slides, tunnels, rope bridges, swings, etc. The restaurant does nice coffee and food, but it's usually very busy (expect to queue and eat standing up), but if the weather's nice, there's loads of space to picnic.
