What a beautiful little town... We visited the Melbourne Hall..the hall is only open a certain amount of days throughout the year. Awesome place, tour guide was really good. Apparently alot of Melbournians from Australia pay a visit here. I highly reccomend going here for at least one day you shall not regret it. Just beautiful.

Even though it was a bit late in the year, the gardens were looking loverly and very well kept. Beautiful vistas across the lake and many small pools. Lots of statues and things of interest to look for in the gardens. After the walk, stop off at the tea rooms for a cream tea, cake or even lunch. Well worth... More

we enjoyed a nice afternoon tea with cake which tasted very fresh. Children had milk shakes served in a jar which was very cute. Staff worked hard and service was good , highly recommend.

A great place to enjoy a cup of tea and sandwiches or cake, especially if it's warm enough to sit outside.Staff are always friendly whenever I've visited. Like the fact that it's waitress service too...no queuing at a counter and struggling with trays.

A real treat to find this beautiful family home! I was on a planned trip to Calke Abbey, and spotted a sign for Melbourne Hall.I belong to HHA, so was given free admission. The house is stunning, well kept, room guides interesting and friendly. The gardens are exquisite, beautifully kept, a joy to go round. Great tea room as well.... More

Have visited Melbourne Hall since my eldest was an infant. Remember her doing rolls down the garden hills. Shes 13 now,so doesnt do that anymore.My other two do though. The garden has given our family many happy days,to remain in our memory. A beautiful, intruiging, enticing garden to explore.

The Hall is only accessible in August as it is a lived in family home of the Kerrs. An excellent tour available on the Saturday by a very knowledgeable guide who gave the full history of the hall and its occupants. The second Viscount, William Lamb, was an early Prime Minister under Victoria's reign and it is due to him... More

A very interesting place to visit, particularly in August when you can get a tour of the house. The Tea Room is excellent and the staff are great - very accommodating! I took a group and we toured the house and then the garden, which we found fascinating, particularly the bird cage! Around every corner was another area to explore!... More

A very interesting place. A few nice individual shops selling craft things. We found a very talented lady making cakes that were amazing! The gardens and lake were lovely. There is a cafe selling delicious cakes and food and you can sit outside in the courtyard if there's room. Will defiantly be returning. Well worth the visit.
