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

Surrounded by beautiful scenery, the National Trust imparts a lot of knowledge about the history of the house to it's visitors.

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.

Berrington Hall is worth a visit, although it is not one of the National Trust’s most interesting venues. The house offers a couple of attractively decorated rooms but it is short on original furniture and artworks, which were sold off to pay death duties before the NT acquired the hall. To make the visitor’s experience more interesting, the NT fills... More

Impressive country house and gardens. Usual jaw dropping show of wealth with a fine collection of furniture, china, art work etc. Friendly staff. Pride & Prejudice costume exhibition was interesting.

Stunning property, the cloth's from Pride and Prejudice were lovely I could see Mr Darcy in his shirt all wet well in my imagination of course. The staff as always with NT are helpful and the tea rooms lovely. We will definitely come back again.

We've managed to spend a whole day here and we've yet to look at the Hall itself. The morning was taken up by doing the long waymarked route, the afternoon by the play area, the walled garden and the lawns. No-one was bored, no-one was asking to go home. The only downside was the Wasp Unpleasantness in the courtyard, but... More

The house was lovely and plenty to look at. The added bonus of the BBCs Pride and Prejudice costumes made the visit even more interesting. The guide sheet was slightly confusing and did not flow very well so it took a bit of working out what room you were in, but apparently they are addressing this. Loved seeing the butlers... More

Very well maintained property with many interesting features. The Georgian ceilings alone are worth a visit. The gardens are extensive and are the last to be designed and built by Capability Brown.

Enjoyable first visit, friendly staff and lovely cafe serving bacon butties. The house is lovely with plenty to look at, we enjoyed the costumes and on a very much free to roam basis it suits us to go at our own leisure. The gardens are well kept, all in all a good few hours spent .
