Their walking trails are perfect for getting out and are made for all fitness levels. Hike to The Lantern and do some deer spotting on the way. Once home to the distinguished Legh family, the lavish furnishings and decorations of Lyme House compliment the elegance of the well-maintained grounds, where Pride and Prejudice fans will enjoy the recognisable view of the impressive lake.
