So – bring all the family and a picnic to this wonderful family friendly afternoon in the 10 acre grounds of Lymm Hall on Rectory Lane… lawns, old moat, shrubbery, trees, flowers, tennis courts – all open for you to enjoy.
As in previous years, this event is supported by Kids Planet who’ll have their gazebo on-site offering baby-friendly activities, face painting and there will be a competition trail and outdoor toys to keep you and your little ones busy and entertained.
Lymm Hall is the beautiful moated country house on Rectory Lane in Lymm which is not normally open to the public. It is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II* listed building. Dating from approximately 1400 it has the remains of a moat and balustraded bridge, extensive gardens, icehouse, summerhouse and kitchen. Sadly, as many of you may know, this property is for sale and this may be the last Garden Party in these fabulous surroundings.
We are very grateful to the Cottrill family for opening their home and gardens to us.
