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

We weren't expecting such a fantastic day! We had a wonderful time, and were so impressed with the whole atmosphere of the house and grounds. The house isn't big, but it is lovely, and everyone working there is so interesting and well-informed. We loved it, and will go back again when we visit the area again.

We visit Berrington Hall several times a year. We love it. The house itself is relatively small but the NT have done a good job of filling it with artifacts so that there is an interesting tour round. The family story is a sad one in several ways, but particularly the loss of three sons (if I remember rightly) in... More

A really lovely house with very helpful and informative staff. I have visited a large number of National Trust properties and I would rate this particular one up there with the best. Certainly worth a second visit when I am in the area again.

Not a large house, but very Georgian in décor and content, set in beautiful parkland. Enjoyed the house tour and also the walled garden, orchard and kitchen garden. Staff were very good; helpful and informative. Only down side was the confusing car parking signage - though we were assured this was being addressed. Arrived too late for refreshments, so can't...

I've driven past Berrington Hall on a number of visits to the area but never made it in. Really good value as you could easily spend a day here. Interesting house and family story - really helpful, informative staff. Beautiful, landscaped grounds and very well presented walled garden. The tea shop is also worth a visit. The weather probably helped... More

Certainly worth a visit and lots to see. Also a great tea shop and super apple orchards. A great place for a trip out or just a stop on a long journey.

This NT site is certainly worth a visit and the current exhibition of Pride & Prejudice costumes was a bonus. We toured the house, an old red sandstone edifice which isn't particularly attractive on the outside but had some hidden gems within. The guides were helpful and informative. More could have been made of the "below-stairs" section but the rooms... More

This is one of my favourite National Trust properties that is close to me. It never disappoint and the volunteers and staff are always helpful. Berrington Hall is always looking to have something different to appeal to everyone. Again it is property where no matter how many times you go, there is always something different that you have not noticed... More

As NT members we have visited several times, but always had a wonderful time. Our grandchildren enjoy all aspects of the hall and gardens. The adventure play area is especially good, being hidden away in beautiful woodland.
