About

Renishaw Hall and Gardens have been home to the Sitwell family for almost 400 years. The present owner, Alexandra Sitwell, welcomes you to visit her home.

The Gardens are Italian in design and were laid out over 100 years ago by Sir George Sitwell, Bt.

The formal grounds are divided into areas featuring clipped yew hedges, intriguing sculpture, ornamental ponds and classical statues. These areas host a superb collection of plants which flower throughout the season.

The borders of the Middle Lawn were recently replanted to a design by RHS Chelsea Award Winner, Arne Maynard.

The Visit Peak District garden - designed by Lee Bestall - was transported and established at Renishaw in 2017, after winning silver-gilt at the first RHS Chatsworth flower show.

The wider grounds comprise acres of parkland and lakes to explore.

Renishaw Hall is still very much a family home which adds to its unique atmosphere. A tour of the Hall – available on Fridays throughout the open season and additionally at weekends in August – allows visitors to see the spectacular collection of art and furniture acquired by generations of Sitwells.

Private group Hall tours are available throughout the year, advance booking is essential.

Located in the attractive Stable Block is the stylish Café at Renishaw Hall, offering homemade seasonal dishes and cakes, and award-winning Renishaw Hall wine, produced from grapes grown on site (vineyard tours on selected Sundays in season).

The Sitwell Museum displays items relating to the incredible story of the 'Sitwell Trio' - Edith, Osbert and Sacheverell - and an exhibition covering the wider history of the garden and Hall.

The visitor centre – from where visitors enter / exit the gardens – has  Renishaw Hall's National GB Award Winning Wines, Guidebooks, Maps, and Souvenirs to buy, with helpful staff on hand to make the most of your visit.
