That foremost expert on the buildings of England, Nikolaus Pevsner, was a little rude about the wonky lines of Little Moreton Hall.

He acknowledged it as ‘the most popular of all English black-and-white houses’ but added that ‘as it comes into sight - happily reeling, disorderly, but no offence meant - it seems at first unbelievable, and then a huge joke.’

The top-heavy appearance of the hall and its lack of straight lines does induce a smile, the National Trust’s own guide book describing the 16th century manor house as ‘lifted from a fairy story’.

Fans of the hall may like to know that there will be even more of it to see in 2018, as parts previously off-limits, including the living quarters of staff in the 20th century, will be open from June.

We would love to see your photos of Little Moreton Hall, upload them to the Cheshire Life reader photo gallery.

Coffee and croissants in a buzzing local deli on a lazy Saturday morning give way to the sights and sounds of the weekend street market. A stroll through a secluded square leads to a chance find in a neighbourhood art gallery. A long lunch follows in an old, wooden-timbered pub before a wander through a centuries-old churchyard and a scour of the blue badges showcasing famous former residents. Finally, a spot of retail therapy across a clutch of smart boutiques then it’s back to unload and unwind in the sanctuary of your chic hotel…. bliss.
