Dating from 1719, the majestic Capesthorne Hall with its stunning Jacobean style architecture is set in 100 acres of picturesque parkland, with exquisite gardens and chain of three serene lakes.
The gardens feature colourful herbaceous borders filled with a rich array of perennials. They are notable for the late summer fragrance of rosa gallica, rosa rugosa and old moss roses. Visitors can also enjoy the rhododendron woods and walks leading to an arboretum.
Capesthorne Hall is the much-loved home of the Bromley-Davenports whose ancestors have owned the land since Domesday times. The Hall contains a great variety of treasures, fine paintings, furniture, marble, Greek vases and family muniments dating from 1153.
