  • We found Smithills Hall by accident and so pleased we did. Our tour guide was Pat (one of the volunteers ). She couldn't have been more informative. Brought the house and the families who lived here to life. Highly recommend a visit and do make a donation.
  • Excellent building,lots of original structure, very old, very good guided tour by volunteers. Free but you definitely should give a donation. Cafe nice, good food, reasonably priced.
  • The cafe is great and the food is amazing. Staff are wonderful. History is amazing and interesting. Highly reccomend
