You have to book to join a guided tour of the house and it's a fascinating insight into the world of our upper classes, with stories of fortunes lost and found. The guides are long served members of the local community and are warm and friendly. The estate has beautiful gardens and a really good cafe with well presented lunches.... More

We had planned to go to Renishaw Hall last week but it is closed on a Tuesday so had to think again and go this week. It opens on a Wednesday but only for the garden and not for the house. There is the facility to visit the house if you are part of a group that have pre-booked. Cost... More

I live very near to Renishaw Hall. The gardens are beautiful, to wander through, to photograph, to paint or to sit and contemplate in. I am a regular visitor not just because it is near, but because it is one of the most lovely private houses to visit. The cafe is staffed by friendly people and proves a good range... More

I visited Renishaw Hall gardens and cafe yesterday on a family outing for Father's Day and excluding the rather dreary weather it couldn't have been more perfect. The gardens are absolutely beautiful. I have been several times now but it was my parents' first visit and they were completely bowled over by them. As my Mum said 'the house and... More

You have to book to be shown round the house on a tour (at £13 approx) which takes just over an hour. This price includes the grounds. Availability is Fridays only in the open months (April-Sept) except August which has weekend tours as well. The Sitwells are a very interesting family and the guide on our tour was very knowledgeable.... More

We celebrated a family wedding at Rensishaw Hall in July 2013. The House itself is an absolute gem of a building. The family have done well to keep it looking the way it does, inside and out. The gardens are absolutely immaculate, and the whole place just made for a stunning backdrop to an elegant English Country wedding. You could... More

Having spent a day in the gardens, don't hesitate to explore. There is something for everyone - stunning borders, woodland and lakeside walks, play areas and quizzes for the kids and, to top it all, the restaurant serving a great locally sourced menu which won't disappoint. The magnolias, camellias, fritillary, wisteria are just beautiful. Go - you won't be disappointed.And... More

Marilyn & Philip visited Renishaw Hall Gardens in April 2014 on a dry and bright day. The gardens were absolutely full of spring bulbs and flowers, camelias and magnolias. The blooms were truly beautiful and everywhere was extremely well kept. We walked right down to the lake through the fragrant bluebell woods and we strolled all around the lake. We... More
