About

Renishaw Hall has been home to the Sitwell family since the late 1600's, and even today it's still very much a family home. 

The Hall is set in eight acres of the most important Italianate gardens in England, woodlands and even has two man-made lakes in the valley below. The Gardens, laid out in the 19th century by Sir George Sitwell, offer a tranquil place to visit for the day, or relax in for a few hours.

The Gardens are open Wednesday to Sunday 10.30am-4.30pm March to September, and Friday to Sunday 10.30am-4pm October to December.

Renishaw Hall has a unique mix of grandeur meets family home, a tour of the hall is a fascinating opportunity to see where generations of the Sitwell family have lived, entertained and created. It's a house full of treasures large and small, collected over many centuries by the ancestors of the current owner.

The house is open by guided tour every Friday in the season at 1.00pm and 2.30pm and weekends during August. For group tours the hall is open by appointment.

The Cafe at Renishaw serves seasonal homemade food that is fresh and delicious. Renishaw Hall's award winning wine is grown on the estate and is available to buy with your meal in Cafe, or to take home from the Visitor Centre.

Rex Whistler, one of the many artists sponsored and patronised by the Sitwells at the beginning of the century, called it "the most exciting place I know".
