Lyme Park makes for a fantastic day out with kids on the Cheshire/Manchester border. A visit to this grand house will allow visitors an insight into the time of the Regency area, and the impact this era had on rejuvenating this impressive Country house. Visitors can admire the lavish interiors, try out the billiards table in the Long Gallery, or find a window seat, relax and read a book in the library. Younger visitors are welcome to visit Lyme’s dressing room to try on some of the finest Regency regalia.
The home lies within a 1400-acre estate which provides families with an opportunity to enjoy picturesque walks with stunning views of either the house, the reflecting lake or adjacent countryside. You may even spot the herd of red deer in this medieval deer park.
Children can let off steam in the Crow Wood playscape consisting of a giant slide, badger den and rope walks.
The Timberyard café offers a selection of hot and cold snacks, soups and a range of cakes.
