Originally built in 1616, Dorfold Hall is a magnificent brick and stone gabled, Grade I listed, Jacobean house nestled in the Cheshire landscape. Oozing old English charm at every corner, it’s a distinctive and fascinating country house to visit.
Beyond the beauty of the main Hall, the elegant garden holds several hidden surprises – such as a magnificent chestnut tree believed to be over a thousand years old, and the last legacy of the original Delamere Forest. There are numerous traditional borders, secluded dells and woodlands to explore, not to mention uninterrupted views extending over the English countryside from the South Lawns which are breath-taking in every season.

Unfortunately, as a historic property, Dorfold was not designed with wheelchair users in mind. The Hall has many stairs and the garden only a few paths. We do, however, have a disabled toilet outside the Hall by the Clocktower and a ramp which will enable access to the South Lawns.
Please do call ahead on +44 (0) 1270 625 245 to discuss your specific requirements and whether we can safely accommodate your needs.
We kindly ask you to leave the gardens as beautiful as you find them for the enjoyment of all.
