  • A wonderful place to visit. In its own secluded wood you feel transported back in time to the Elizabethan era when the imposing residence was built. During and after the industrial revolution the Padiham area was awash with the 'dark satanic mills' pumping out cotton cloth, so it is appropriate that the Hall now houses one of the finest textile collections in the world. This is onshow to the public and well worth a visit. Maintained now by the National Trust.
  • Beautiful house. Sad that no photo's can be taken inside. Its cheap to get in I think more rooms could do with being opened. Focused more on Exhibitions later. The cafe was disapointing the music blaring out Fifties music to point couldnt talk together , Until spoke to lovely lady. Who we thought could do with being serving the public in cafe helpful and with a smile. Friendly, only started her job 4wks ago. The other wonan ponytail dark hair couldnt be bothered to put hersef out.
  • Lovely small but beautifully put together historic house. Nice interior and interesting textile collection. Grounds are good to relax in.
  • A stately home in miniature with a scale that is a pleasure to experience. I could very easily imagine living here. Delightful
  • Typical vernacular architecture and furniture. Very helpful guides.
