A glorious house, surrounded by gardens, moorland and deer park. Nestling on the edge of the Peak District, Lyme was once a great sporting estate and home of the Legh family for over 600 years.
The house is renowned for its elegant interiors and beautiful gardens, against a backdrop of sweeping moorland with extensive views across Manchester and the Cheshire Plain. Step inside the house and discover unusual objects and strange secrets as you walk through six centuries of family history, including the Lyme Missal, the most important printed book in the National Trust’s collection. The 1,400 acre estate with its medieval herd of red deer is a paradise for bird-watchers and wildlife spotters, and hosts regular guided walks and running events. For a more tranquil stroll, explore the Edwardian rose garden, ravine garden or orangery next to the reflecting lake where a certain Mr Darcy met Miss Bennett in the BBC production of 'Pride and Prejudice'.
Contemporary cafés are open every day serving hot meals, drinks, ice-creams and snacks using seasonal, local produce. Visit the wild play area with tree house, climbing wall, slides, and basket swing. Two shops sell locally made products, home accessories, sweets, plants, toys and gifts.
