From Our Editors

A serene corner of Cheshire countryside holds the 18th-century house, formal gardens, chapel and parkland of Capesthorne Hall. The imposing symmetry of the property's facade showcases classic Jacobean-style architecture. 16th-century stained glass windows illuminate a lavish interior with its unique collection of antique and ebony furniture, marble sculptures and bronzes. Walls are adorned by historical paintings, portraiture and large mirrors reflecting delicate chandeliers. Outside, a spectrum of perennial plants, maples, cherry trees and unusual 18th-century flora frame a tranquil spread of lakes and abundant wildlife. Visitors requiring refreshment can seek out Butlers Pantry, which serves homemade lakeside lunches, cream teas, ice cream and other treats.

With the Groupon, A pleasant afternoon spent exploring the hall and grounds and warming up with hot chocolate in the cafe afterwards. Whilst interesting, we were slightly disappointed that we only got to see a relatively small part of the hall and overall felt that it was really just a sales ploy promoting the wedding venue facility.

The house and guides were very interesting. It was lovely to see a house that is still lived in by the family. The gardens were lovely and the café provided a great lunch.
