Rode Hall Gardens
Rode Hall is a beautiful early eighteenth-century country house set in a Repton landscape and has been the home of the Wilbraham family since 1669. Its extensive grounds include a woodland garden which is home to our very popular Snowdrop Walks throughout February, followed by bluebells and many hybrid rhododendrons and azaleas in May; a formal rose garden and terrace filled with a variety of herbaceous plants and a stunning two acre walled kitchen garden.
This boasts a wide variety of fruit, flowers and vegetables and is home to our world record breaking gooseberries! There is also a large lake with its own Birthday Island complete with heronry to explore as well as a restored icehouse.
The house is open to the public for guided tours and has a fine collection of English porcelain and Gillow furniture. The delightful tearooms serve homemade light lunches, cakes and cream teas using all fresh produce from our kitchen garden.
