East lodge nestles on the eastern boundary of Lyme’s 1400 acre historic deer park, commanding panoramic views of Kinder Scout, the historic cage banqueting tower, roaming red deer herd and far below the spectacular spread of Greater Manchester. This Edwardian sandstone cottage was, built in 1904, and is the former home of an estate worker family.
Lyme Park, House and Garden was once home to the Legh family and was, in its heyday, a great sporting estate. Lyme was also famously used as a location for the iconic BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, starring Colin Firth.
Lyme Hall is the largest house in Cheshire, it’s undergone many transformations during its long history from humble beginnings to an Italianate palace. This season discover what life was like for the family and their servants living here during the Edwardian era. Highlights in the house include: the Wardrobe Department, where visitors can dress up and feel like a walk on extra in a period drama; Truelove the butler’s suite of rooms, where silver was polished, wine was decanted and newspapers pressed; and the cinefilm lovingly created by, and starring, the last generation of the Legh family to be born and raised at Lyme. For a tranquil walk explore the Edwardian rose garden, manicured lawns, luxurious herbaceous borders and gaze into the reflection lake in the garden.
The estate offers fantastic walks, runs and stunning views, free walk leaflets are available. Events and activities take place throughout the year, please visit the webpage by clicking on the nearby tab above.

- Heart of England
The industrial heart of England now offers one of Britain's loveliest National Parks, the Peak District, a region of outstanding natural beauty with spectacular and contrasting scenery. Moorland, ancient oak woodlands, bustling market towns and pretty villages are easily accessible from some of our major cities. Some of the Trust's finest properties are in the area, including High Peak Estate, straddling the Yorkshire-Derbyshire border, Lyme Park mansion and gardens, surrounded by a medieval deer park and Hardwick Hall, hardly changed since its creation in Elizabethan times. To the south is the gentler area of the Cotswolds and its neighbouring county of Warwickshire. With its gently rolling countryside of hills and valleys, picturesque stone villages and fine houses, this beautiful area now offers the visitor a glimpse of traditional English life. The National Trust owns some of the loveliest countryside in the area, some fine houses and important gardens. There is a huge and varied choice from Tudor Snowshill Manor, with its eclectic collection of musical instruments, clocks and Japanese armour to Hidcote Manor Gardens, famous for its rare trees, shrubs and outstanding herbaceous borders. Other Trust places in the area include Newark Park with its stunning views, the Sherborne Park estate, while the Buscot and Coleshill estates in west Oxfordshire are set in 7,500 acres of rolling farmland and woodland. The Iron Age hill-fort of Badbury Hill offers superb views over the Upper Valley south to White Horse Hill and the Berkshire Downs.
