Adlington Hall, the home of the Leghs of Adlington, since 1315, was built on the site of a Hunting Lodge, which stood in the Forest of Macclesfield in 1040. The two oak trees still stand and support the east end of the hall, which was built between 1450 and 1505. Between the trees stands an organ, almost certainly the work of Father Bernard Smith, installed between 1660 and 1680, and on which, Handel subsequently played and composed a piece of music, said manuscript is displayed in the Hall. Much of the hall was built in 1581 and is Elizabethan black and white. The Georgian west wing and south front were added in 1757.

The Gardens, laid out over many centuries, include a Lime walk planted in 1688 and a Regency rockery, surrounding the Shell Cottage. The wilderness includes a Rococo styled landscape garden containing the chinoserie Ting House, a Pagoda bridge and the classical Temple to Diana. The 60 acres of gardens also include the stunning Rose Garden and Yew Tree Maze.
