As National Trust regulars it is always interesting to see how the privately owned estates do things from time to time. Arley certainly has it all, big house, extensive grounds, restaurant, a church, ... read more »
We had a fantastic day out going round the stunning gardens,everything still in bloom and looking good for the beginning of Autumn,will be going again very soon.
Well worth a visit. House very historical with knowledgeable staff. Gardens a treat. Herbaceous border outstanding. Lovely lawns to sit by for a rest, wooded area and "wild area" to explore. In fact, ... read more »
Visited Arley for the first time a week ago- to their Garden Festival. What a hidden gem ! The festival was most enjoyable, plenty to see and do. Returned again yesterday to finish seeing what we missed last weekend .The gardens are absolutely stunning with something different round every corner. Lovely new restaurant and very friendly, helpful staff too. Can't wait to go back.
Beautiful gardens & hall what ever the season. Temporary cafe serves adequate snacks. (Though picturesque Lymm has several excellent eateries & only 4 miles away plus good walks around the dam, town & canal). If u read the noticeboard in the car park and can't walk 250 yards to the main entrance, there is a phone number to ring for alternative parking. Excellent place to visit.
We visited on a Saturday, after our last visit perhaps over twenty years ago. Pleased to report that nothing has changed. There's still free parking, and after a short walk, the entrance is through a shop. Unfortunately when we were there, the house was closed, as it's only open at this time of the year on two days of the week: so check the website first if you want to go in. But even if you don't go into the house, the gardens are immaculate. The total area covered is quite small, so it makes for walking between the various sections brief. Don't miss the topiary and the little tudor house. There's a restaurant here, but unfortunately for us, it was undergoing renovation when we visited. So we had to make do with the cafe. The sandwiches were average, and our order was mistaken and also prepared twice! So, -1 star . The WiFi was free (5.6 Down, 0.4 Up).
We visited Arley Hall this week in the hope of a nice lunch and wander in the gardens and hall. Unfortunately the walk from the car park to the hall and courtyard area was considerably long for older/infirm visitors with no seating along the way . So whilst its a beautiful place for the able bodied, be prepared for a long slow walk to the hall area from the car-park if you have a disability. You can hire wheel chairs once you reach the cafe but you have to make it there first.!!
Beautiful place. Loved to see dozens of rabbits jumping about freely.
