An interesting House, near Knutsford. Tucked away in lovely countryside and well worth a visit, especially as the entrance fee is only £5! The house is owned by the University of Manchester, but only the main floor is open to the public. However, there is...More

Bern driving past Tabley House for years and always meant to visit. Last week we did! It's only open afternoons Thursday to Sunday but I would recommend visiting. Lovely little cafe for lunch, all freshly made, and reasonably priced, with a 400 year fireplace to...More

Reasonably priced entrance fee at £5 each but a bit disappointed that there wasn't much to see. Only a few rooms open to view. The guides, with the exception of one, were rather annoying. I was trying to concentrate on reading the information that was...More

Visited on a busy Sunday afternoon and while the surroundings were impressive, the food was overpriced and rather disappointing. Loved the vintage china but £15 for afternoon tea consisting of a few bits of bread (with barely any filling) and small, rock hard scones was...More

What a lovely spot, hidden away and a great tea room where we had a delicious lunch although the portions were enormous! The house is most interesting and worth a visit if you like to be transported back in time, the guides are very knowledgeable...More
