Originating in Saxon times and with the Georgian front being added in 1744, Dalemain provided a really enjoyable visit for a mansion house lived-in by the same family currently and for the past 300 years.
As the main house doesn't usually open until 1pm, a pleasant time can be spent exploring the attractive and considerable gardens beforehand. There is also a small shop, and antiques center at the Admission area.
The guides are very helpful and knowledgeable and will take time to explain about life 'above and below stairs' !
There is a pleasant tea-room in what was once the Great Hall, and don't miss the undersold museum of farming antiquities in the building across the courtyard.
