The golden era of Lyme Park was in the Edwardian age, when it was a great sporting estate before the Great War.
The estate, six miles from Stockport, includes the impressive house with its lavish interiors, and a beautiful garden set against sweeping moorland.
The 1,300 acre park with its medieval herd of red and fallow deer offers fantastic walks and stunning views.
Children can let off steam in Crow Wood Playscape whilst the coffee shop offers hot and cold snacks, soups and cakes.
Group admission is £9.50 per person, but groups cannot be catered for on weekends or bank holidays.
The park and coffee shop are open all year round except for Christmas Day, while the house is open between February 25 and October 28, and the garden is open between February 25 and December 31.
There is parking for one coach a mile from the entrance, and a drop-off point 150 yards away for booked house visitors. Parking is free if pre-booked.
