Lyme Park, Disley

4.5
#3 of 76 in Parks in Cheshire
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. To visit Lyme Park on your trip to Disley, use our Disley trip planner.

  • Fantastic place. As well as the spectacular house and usual features of such a house you get a real insight into the running of a country estate. Took the behinds the scenes tour which takes you right into the back of the house including kitchens, brewery, butlers rooms, lamp rooms and goods delivery areas. The gardens are lovely and allow dogs on some days. Set in expansive park and moorland with spectacular views. Love this place.
  • A great place to spend free time with family or friends. A huge space, a nice park with nice views. A great place for those who value history. There is a beautiful palace to visit. I would recommend.
  • Lovely hall, gardens and grounds. You can wander round the hall at leisure. Some rooms are quite dark, but that is done to preserve the contents from light damage. The gardens are laid out in distinctive areas - The Italian Garden, Rose Garden etc. There is also an Orangery which is quite pleasant to sit in. There is a tearoom in the house and one located at The Timber Yard, the NT shop is also located there.
  • One of the better stately homes to walk round, the story of the original owner was very interesting. The animal mummy exhibition was interesting but felt a bit out of place, not sure if it was because the plinths were built out of wood and plain. The grounds are lovely, but as we went out of season we didn't get the full effect of the blooms. Parking seemed a nightmare, it was full with cars stacked on the main road, I understand its national trust land but some of land could possibly be repurposed (for instance the side of the main road way to the house to allow for more parking). Also its a decent walk from the entrance and the mini bus is only 6seats; why not invest in one of those tractor trains?
  • Great house with good informative volunteers on hand to answer questions. Gardens were beautiful. Pricey entry fee but well worth the money. Good for NT members that don't have to pay. Parking £8 at the time I went. Look on their website for more prices though.
