Owner description: Created as the perfect house in the perfect setting, Berrington has many secrets to uncover. 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?

I visited the hall and grounds last summer and really enjoyed my day out. There are formal gardens and landscaped grounds, both very relaxing and of a high standard. I spent a lot of time in the grounds and found them very enjoyable. Parking is readily available and access would be easy for those with children in pushchairs. We really... More

Interesting house and information. Suggest combining with visit to croft castle nearby as could not spend day there. Rained when leaving, so only visited small garden near car park.

This really very compact country house had an amazing number of interlocking rooms. The furnishings and décor were all in keeping as befits a NT property and the 'Pride and Prejudice' costumes were extremely interesting. Loved the impressive walled garden and bought some vegetables grown there from the very knowledgeable and helpful volunteers. Went on the 'downstairs' tour, which I... More

A lovely Georgian house with incredible ceilings. We felt the information here was not very good. At the entrance we were provided with a rather tatty laminated sheet of 10 items of interest in the house but the usual information sheet in each room seemed to be lacking.It was interesting to see the costumes but more interesting to see the...

Berrington was not a happy home; an air of sadness pervades the whole place as though its melancholy ghosts wander relentlessly seeking rest and solace, yet finding none. Lady Catherine de Burgh may have thought the park small, the house not quite grand enough, the aspect not as imposing as she would have it, though, had Mr and Mrs Bennett... More

Full of Pride and Prejudice costumes, wife loved it. I found the house a bit too dark but well presented.

Berrington Hall is well worth a visit. There is plenty of information on display and guides are present to give you more if you need it. At the time of our visit there was a costume display, including those used in the BBC's Pride and Prejudice series, which made the visit even more interesting. We didn't get a chance to... More

Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. We were lucky as there is a display at the moment of some of the outfits from pride and prejudice. Beautiful grounds very well maintained.

We have been here many times and never tire of it. The house has an interesting history with lovely artifacts/furniture, decoration (especially the ceilings) and paintings. There was a special display of Georgian costumery (i.e. Pride &Prejudice sort of thing) and had a good laugh when our friends tried on the white curly wigs. The parkland includes gardens, vegetable plot,... More

Thoroughly enjoyable visit and lots to see and do on this weekend. Staff were also very helpful as we brought a disabled friend with us. Good wheelchair for outdoors and one inside the house itself. No lift, but we carried the wheelchair upstairs and our friend was able to manage the staircase by taking it slowly.
