Love Lyme Park

On the edge of the Peak District, nestling within sweeping moorland, Lyme Park is a magnificent estate. Its wild remoteness and powerful beauty contrast with one of the most famous country-house images in England – the backdrop to where Darcy meets Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice. Discover a colourful family history – from rescuing the Black Prince, sailing into exile with the Duke of Windsor, to the writing of the hit series Upstairs Downstairs. Enjoy hearing visitors play the piano as you discover impressive tapestries, clocks and beautifully furnished rooms, or escape to the park and feel miles from anywhere

If not only for the spectacular view then for the rich literary background, National Trust site Lyme Park in Cheshire is perhaps the perfect escape for a quick holiday retreat. Here you will be able to see the very manor home that brought to life the classic tale told in ‘Pride and Prejudice’, and while maybe not all younger children may have had the pleasure to read this epic story you can regale them with it just the same with this stunning home as inspiration.

The green rolling terrace, empowering trees, and foliage are all set beside the pristine lake waters that are shimmering in the most vibrant blues.

While the landscape making up this unique National Trust venue is ideal for any number of photo opportunities, the inside home is just as thrilling. You will bear witness to ornate tapestries and rooms that are outfitted in furniture and embellishments reminiscent of times past.

To complete the ambiance there is of course the melody of the piano all the while going on in the background; truly a treat for the ears. The library itself is worth noting as not only is it of grand proportions but also an ideal spot to sit for a spell and soak all of this in.

Kids will love a trip to the National Trust Lyme Park because at the end of the tour they can test their own ability to retain what they learned with a fun and interactive quiz time. So when you are looking for a great place to impart a little wisdom and take a relaxing walk among all the greenery be sure to head on out to this charming area.
