Day OneFriday Lyme Park, House and Garden
A morning departure heading directly to
Lyme Park, House and Garden
Glorious house, surrounded by gardens, moorland and deer park
Welcome to Lyme Park. Nestling on the edge of the Peak District, Lyme Park was once home to the Legh family and, in its heyday a great sporting estate.
Nestling on the edge of the Peak District, Lyme Park, House and Garden was once home to the Legh family and was, in its heyday, a great sporting estate. Lyme is now managed by the National Trust and was used as a location for the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, starring Colin Firth.
This season step back in time to the Edwardian era, Lyme's vibrant Indian summer. 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; the cinefilm lovingly created by, and starring, the last generation of the Legh family to be born and raised at Lyme; and the library where visitors can relax and view the 15th century Lyme Missal prayer book, the single most important printed book in the National Trust's collection.
For a tranquil walk explore the Edwardian rose garden, manicured lawns, luxurious herbaceous borders and gaze into the reflection lake in the garden.
The 1,300 acre estate with its medieval herd of red and fallow deer offers fantastic walks, runs and stunning views. Free walk leaflets are available including a Pride and Prejudice route which takes in the famous film locations. Children can let off steam in Crow Wood Playscape with its giant slide, tree house and rope walks.
Afterwards we make our way to to our Hotel for our evening meal
After our full English breakfast we depart for a full day visit to the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show. The show will be full of attractions, from spectacular Floral Marquees ablaze with colourful displays from over 80 nurseries and a series of back-to-back gardens proving that even the smallest space can become a treasured retreat. There will also be spectacular water gardens along with specialist plants. All the displays will delight and inspire, with flower arrangements that will take your breath away.
After breakfast we load up the coach and visit Trenthan Italian Gardens and shopping Village before we set off for home.
Whether you’re looking for a garden with peace and quiet, or fun and action you will find a great day out here at Trentham Gardens.
The new-look gardens have matured into some of the finest in Britain, declared, by James Alexander Sinclair in The Telegraph, as “The garden makeover of the decade”.
The contemporary revival of the famous Italian Gardens was led by renowned designer and multi-Chelsea gold-medal winner Tom Stuart-Smith. To the east of the Italian Gardens are the Rivers of Grass and the adjacent Floral Labyrinth. Both these schemes were designed by eminent Dutch plantsman, and Chelsea gold-medal winner, Piet Oudolf.
We are an award-winning garden which in 2013 won the Enjoy Staffordshire Tourism Gold Award, in 2015, 2016 and 2017 we were awarded a Gold Accolade by Visit England.
At the centre of Trentham Gardens is the mile long, Capability Brown designed, Trentham Lake. Take the circular lakeside walk all the way round as it takes you aside the River Trent, by the bird hide, through the cascading weir and along atmospheric trails, featuring vast meadow schemes by Nigel Dunnett and the team who were responsible for the stunning wildflower plantings at the Olympic Park. These were chosen for seasonal interest and environmental suitability.

Crewe Arms Hotel
Built in 1830 the Crewe Arms is located adjacent to Crewe Railway station. The hotel was one of Britain's first railway hotels with its doors opening up onto the platform and remains an imposing brick red building at the gateway to Crewe. It is one of the few remaining buildings from the 19th century 'new town'. Queen Victoria and her family actually used the hotel when she travelled from London to Scotland for her annual summer holidays. There is even a tunnel that she used there to avoid walking with the commoners!
All guest rooms are en suite and have free WiFi.
Please note due to the historic nature of the building there are no lifts to the upper floors however the accessible room is easily accessed from the dining and lounge areas.Back to top
