The former home of the Legh family, Lyme Park is now administered by the National Trust. The house lies within a 550 ha (1,359 acres) deer park and both are open to the public. On the edge of the Peak District, the park features stunning walks and views through moorland and woodland scenery, punctuated by wandering red and fallow deer as well as highland cattle, which have inhabited the grounds for many years.
Running, cycling, horse riding, orienteering and wildlife watching are all welcome. There are also children’s play and mountain bike areas, or explore the lake and formal gardens surrounding the house itself.
