We were most fortunate in having a guided tour of the house for our NADFAS group. Our guide made it so interesting and as it is still lived in by the family it ws a priviledge to be able to view the interior. There is an interesting museum and an excellent video on the family. The courtyard cafe offers a... More

We had an interesting guided tour of the hall but I was disappointed that we were not able to take photographs inside the hall. The house has very nice Italianate still garden which should not be missed. I can also recommend the café in the courtyard.

We've here several times before and always love to come back. This time we only visited the garden. Entrance price for an adult is £6.50 and parking is £1. Not too expensive if you compare it with NT gardens, which are more often £11 pounds entrance. Of course it is already late in the season and a lot of flowers... More

Just had a wonderful morning and lunch out at Renshaw Hall, the most well kept and beauiful English gardens. The lawns were lush and green, the lake and fountain clean and sparkling. The flowers on the borders full of butterflies and bees, I have had such a lovely day there. So lovely to see "please walk on the grass" afterall... More

Set in its own grounds near Sheffield this hall is the home of the Sitwell family. When we went there was a food and craft fair in the courtyard which was fun and allowed us to purchase home made cakes and jams etc The house was impressive and imposing. The cafe is good value for money but due to the... More

Renishaw has long been on my list of gardens to visit in derbyshire but Chatsworth is just such a draw that I never seem to get around to it. Well, I finally visited Renishaw on a beautiful summer's day and it didn't disappoint. The italianate gardens were a riot of colour. Unlike Chatsworth the gardens at Renishaw aren't ruined with...

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
