A wonderful hall and grounds but pricing for entry and in the teashop make it a one off which is such a shame for families and those on lower incone. It is worth a visit but if only it were more accessible.

Visited in Sept. 2012 on a saturday, arrived by car pleasant trip up from Cotswolds (3.5 hours). Came for BBC Pride and Prejudice locale and were Thrilled. Beautiful house and grounds/gardens, just as seen in the BBC miniseries. We didn't go inside, concentrating on walking the spacious grounds all afternoon on a beautiful day. Not crowded in mid Sept., easy... More

The park is a lovely setting for what is undoubtedly a beautiful house set by a very pretty little lake. The interior is very impressively decorated but you are not allowed to take photos even without a flash, the NT stating it had to do with copyright but they seem to be getting reluctant to let people use cameras in...

Had a lovely time at Lyme Park but was disappointed that you can't get round the front of the building to get the famous view without paying so much extra. The £5 for the car park is fine though, and the rest is very beautiful.

I visited Lyme Park this weekend for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed the day. The property is well staffed by the National Trust staff who are very helpful and knowledgeable. There are also lots of typed guides in each room too. The house is full of interesting objects and the rooms are well furnished. The gardens and grounds are... More

We stopped at Lyme after reading the good reviews and having decided to make use of our National Trust membership. We have previously visited similar large properties - Wimpole, Audley End, Llanhydrock and are aware that each has it's own unique character. Whilst not my favourite stately home (I prefer the smaller more informal ones - Nunninton Hall, Haddon Hall... More

Whether or not you are a National Trust member, this is a fantastic family day out. The staff really make the place come to life and are always on hand supplying interesting facts about the property, the era and the Legh family. The grounds are exquisite and the buildings stunning. You can even dress up and wonder around the place... More

Owned by the national trust, volunteers are very knowledgable and they are very helpful. Setting is vast and great for walks in winter or summer. Take a picnic or have afternoon tea in the cafe. The house has some lovely furniture and paintings and the volunteers are happy to talk you through the rooms. They have quiz,s for the children... More

You can go for a stroll in the woods or further around the edge of the Park where you will probably see the deer. The café in the yard serves a great bacon butty or jacket potato for lunch & the gardens are lovely at all times of the year. On a clear day you can see all over Manchester.... More
