Here in one of Henry Holland’s first houses, you can explore the family rooms and walk in the servants’ footsteps down the back stairs, moving around the house unseen by the family and guests. You will find out what happened to William Kemp, LordCawley’s butler, and discover the anguish of a grieving mother during the First World War. Alternatively why not join a below-stairs tour to see if you would have liked being a servant at Berrington? « less

This is a great place to spend a day. Lots to see,(and learn) and all of it very interesting and informative. Unlike some of these properties, Berrington offers the opportunity to "handle" some of the exhibits !! We were encouraged to look at photograph albums and read letters, all of which were precious, and told a story. The garments worn... More

The house is very austere with no embellishment whatsoever. It and the courtyard are built in a reddy-brown sand stone, which adds to the dour, gloomy atmosphere. That said, the internals are interesting and the gardens sweep down to the lake. But again there is little colour to enliven the plot. But a good restaurant with a wide range of... More

The grounds of this stately home had been laid out by Capability Brown who had recommended his son-in-law Henry Holland as the architect of the house. It was commissioned by a wealthy merchant in the late 18th century and was built in a very austere, classical style outside but with very beautiful interiors. The structure is built of local red...

Visited the other week on a Friday for some quiet 'down time'. The property was not busy and for much of the time the sun was shining, which meant the walled gardens were lovely to stroll round. I love the use of herbs in culinary and historical medicinal practices and it was lovely to see Lovage etc., growing and interpreted.... More

Lovely house but the grounds not so good. The NT shop very small, the plants were from Hanbury Hall ( which we've been to several times and is far far better than Berrington Hall ). Nice courtyard for eating outside but we did not try it out. If you're looking for a seat do not go on a walk outside... More

Berrington Hall is a fine house built for Thomas Harley in the 1780s who made his fortune as a banker and government contractor in London. There is plenty to see in the House, including the links with the family of Admiral Lord Rodney, whom Harley's second daughter, Anne, married in 1781. Downstairs in the House can be seen the Marble... More

Interesting house and beautiful gardens and parkland. Well worth a visit. Only £9.50 per adult for all access inc parking. Nice touches such as free games for families and croquet. National Trust property.
