“wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

I am a member of National Trust with my mum and i usually just go round the houses etc quite quickly but i have to say i absolutely loved this hall. It is my favourite. The best part was the Long hall and we were lucky to talk to the man who looks after it. He was very funny and gave lots of advice about the hall. The long hall is amazing you must go and see it.
The talk from the lady in costume about Mid summer was great. we were the only 2 and were able to sit in the garden in the sunshine with her. A must see Hall

“A Cheshire Gem !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

My partner and myself were really impressed with our visit - a great way to spend an afternoon - especially if you are members of the NT as we are.

Our guide was fantastic - June I think ? Please go and visit.

“Beautiful house shame about the staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Visited the house with family from abroad. We were met by an agressive National Trust member - an older lady, who agressively tried to sell the benefits of National Trust membership. Wasnt least interested in what we wanted, she was not going to let go until she finished her sales pitch and actually refused to hand over out tickets until she was done! The house is a true national treasure and a great day out, but staff are stuck up and clearly feel that the only cliantelle who should be appreciated is the elderly generation and watched us with suspicious faces throughout the visit. When leaving I thanked the lady standing at the gate for the experience, only to be recieved by a gracous' you are welcome' ' Surely they should be thanking ME and my 10 people party for the visit?? The only redeeming feature was the charming elderly gentleman directing us in the car park who went out of his way to welcome us then bid farewell. He should be training the rest of the staff on some good old fashioned customer service.

“We loved it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

I brought three children to the Hall this summer. (Two eight year olds and an eleven year old.) We picked up two different quizzes to do during our visit. The children loved them. The property itself is a Tudor Manor house which remained in the ownership of the same family until it was donated to the National Trust. We took advantage of the free talk and the guided tour available, which were both very interesting. The children enjoyed it to as it helped them by answering, or guiding the children to the answers, for their quiz sheets.
After the tour we went upstairs to explore the rest of the hall on our own. The halls original toilets proved to be "interesting"! Quite chilly in the winter I'd imagine. Some items of Tudor period clothing were available for the children to try on. (A favourite with the young girl.) They took part in making craft items to take home. Tudor games were also available for us all to try, which were also a great success. (We had to make our own copy of "Nine Men's Morris" when we arrived home as the children absolutely loved it!)
Everyone learnt something new. A successful day for everyone. You could easily spend an hour here, or 3 hours like we did. Even longer if you decided to eat in the restaurant! Take your time and enjoy all it has to offer.

“Lovely place but mind your step!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

The grounds at Little Moreton Hall are lovely, well maintained and the stream is great. The House itself is remarkable, lovely Tudor house but once inside it was dark and the floor was very uneven, I wouldn't recommend with pushchairs!
