Overview

We are Open May - September, 2pm - 5pm, Tuesday till Friday (also Bank Holiday Sundays and Mondays). This romantic Gothic house is the lived in family home of the famous Gillow furniture making dynasty. Boasting unique, priceless pieces of Gillow furniture, Leighton's informal guided tours appeal to all ages. Outside the Hall are woodland walks, an abundant 19th century walled garden, herbaceous borders and roses, a fragrant herb patch and an ornamental vegetable plot. Every day at 3.30 pm (weather permitting), Falconer Jim Brown, gives flying displays with his birds of prey, where visitors get the chance to put on a glove and really get up close to these fantastic creatures. For 2015 we have installed a new petite children's play area. Our products have been sourced locally as we worked with a local playground company to maximize the space we had available. So we hope the children will enjoy these facilities. Please go to our website or Facebook page for entrance fees, or just give us a call.

Interesting stately home with welcoming staff and very enthusiastic tour guides. The website suggests an itinerary and we by and large did this. Nice ground and the usual coffee and gift shop. Free parking and quite a way off the main road.
