If you’re visiting one of the many stately homes Cheshire, make a day of it by taking a walk in the surrounding areas.
The village of Great Budworth was part of the Arley Hall estate for centuries and this walk starts begins close to the stately home. Visit the famous George and Dragon pub which dates back to the 17th century.
Lyme Park has a deer park of over 1,000 acres which is a favourite for walkers. We have two treks that run close to the estate, one that heads east towards Poynton and one that starts out at Disley and into the Peak District with views of Lyme Park and White Nancy.
Capesthorne Hall is a majestic building that lies just a few miles west of Macclesfield, and some extensive grounds and gardens that you can visit. We have two walks that head south of the estate , one to nearby Siddington and another a little further afield at Marton.
Gawsworth Hall is of almost equal distance to the popular towns of Macclesfield and Congleton and Shutlingsloe in the Peak District. You can head north and explore the wildlife at Danes Moss or go south to visit the village of North Rode.
Little Moreton Hall
Head towards Little Moreton Hall, Congleton from the village of Astbury and take in one of our historic waterways in the form of the Macclesfield Canal. Mow Cop can be seen on the horizon and is only a short distance away from the Hall.
