Well worth a visit but you can cover everything in a couple of hours.

We did a walk which was very pleasant whilst we waited for the house to open.

The volunteers are really willing to expand on the rich history and should be commended.

An enjoyable trip out.

What a beautiful place. We didn’t go in the house, but spent quite some time picnicking in the beautifully kept gardens.

The only negative I would say is that there are only a couple of loos. Luckily it was not too busy when we went.

Would definitely recommend and return if in the area.

Interesting house with friendly and informed in-house guide. Pleasant winter gardens with lots of different hellebore varieties - also said to have loads of crocus and snowdrop varieties but we were late in the season for those. Ancient church also on site, with car park free for NT members or £2 per day. Limited opening hours with staircase access only to first floor and second floor not included in tour

Beautiful house from the outside and the two rooms we managed to see inside. We arrived at just after 2p.m expecting to be able to book on a tour but were called in straight away with maybe a dozen other people for independent viewing. However, there was a tour going on upstairs and one of the volunteers would not let anyone else up. Fair enough, but this generated a bottle neck in the tight space at the bottom of the stairs. We were the only two wearing masks and yet it's still way to early post covid for us to be crammed together with others so we left without seeing the house .

We visited Benthall Hall as a family in August 2021. The hall is located well off the main road and was not particularly well signed, being on a corner. Additionally, the entrance into the car park from the access road is blind and you can’t really see cars coming out, nor is there really anywhere to pull in.

The reception / entrance hut is very low key and could almost be missed as it’s just a shed. There’s no tea room at all, which is disappointing. The small church is an interesting site, very rural looking with a lot of restoration going on inside with the floor up etc. The house is an amazing looking building, plenty of gardens and grounds to walk round and inside a number of rooms available to visit, although much of it is still lived in by the family. The volunteers inside were very friendly and enthusiastic and brought the place to life.

Overall we had a nice time there and would return.

Went here for our anniversary day!!
Very nice place and lots of history to look at.
We went on the guided tour and the lady was really good and really knew her stuff (despite being off for a few weeks).
She was so knowledgeable and it was very interesting.
Also there was a lovely older chap who knew loads about the church and he was so good to listen to!! Very helpful.
It was just a bit of a shame that there was not more to see in the house.
The grounds were lovely and we enjoyed our game of badminton 🏸!!
We also thought it was such a shame there was no cafe for a cuppa 🫖🫖 as we were so thirsty!! Another guest said there was one but it recently shut and hasn't opened up again!!!! Just a shame. But overall a lovely place to visit and lots of walks in the grounds.
