Explore Dorfold – Open to the Public

The gardens will soon burst into life and colour… Beginning with a sea of

of daffodils throughout the 19 acres of gardens.

Come and visit us and discover what Dorfold has to offer!  In just under three weeks Dorfold Hall will open its gates once again to welcome visitors back to the grounds and into the Hall for historic tours.


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 is a distinctive and fascinating country house to visit.

At its core Dorfold is a beloved family home passed down through the generations. For Charles and Candice the story began in 2017, with the Hall in a state of disrepair and the estate facing a rather gloomy future. Together they have gone on to redefine Dorfold, creating a unique world where the present rubs shoulders with the past, working towards re-establishing a self-sufficient estate at the heart of the local community, with sustainability at the forefront of their minds.

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 on Dorfold grounds.  There are numerous traditional borders, secluded dells and woodlands to explore, not to mention uninterrupted views extended over the English countryside from the South Lawns which are breath-taking in every season.
Every Tuesday afternoon between 1pm and 5pm from the beginning to April to the end of October visitors will have the opportunity to have a guided tour of the Hall with our wonderful guide Lana.  Lana’s knowledge of the history of the house is incredible and her endless joviality makes the experience all the more special.


Visitors (and well-behaved dogs!) can explore so many places, including The Lake, Ladies Walk, The Dell, and our latest addition, the wildflower meadow in the Tollemache walled garden. In April, there will be an incredible carpet of daffodils as you come down the drive, swiftly followed by bluebells – scattered around the grounds – and later azaleas – in the Dell – as we move into May. All this topped off with a cup of tea and a slice of cake in the Tack as you take in the views of the L’Écurie courtyard and the Hall beyond.
