About Lyme Park
The mile-long drive to Lyme Park creates a real sense of anticipation, which the house more than matches up to. Originally Tudor, it now resembles a fabulous Italianate palace. Inside there are incredible Mortlake tapestries, an important collection of clocks, beautifully furnished rooms, along with a colourful family history. Stroll through the opulent Victorian garden, with its sunken parterre, or the Edwardian rose garden.

Enjoy the luxurious Jekyll-style borders and Wyatt-designed Orangery, sit on the grass, or wander lazily by the lake (where Darcy and Elizabeth meet at 'Pemberley' in Sense and Sensibility), then venture beyond the garden, where the medieval deer park stretches into the distance; the vast moors and parkland are home to fallow and red deer.

Seek out The Cage, an 18th-century hunting tower, or explore the woods and discover the lantern folly, with its breathtaking views. Delicious food, including venison from the park, is prepared in the Lyme kitchens; and with retail therapy at hand, Lyme really is a glorious day out.
