Discover Cheshire's hidden heritage gems
There's plenty to see and do at Little Moreton Hall and Hare Hill. Discover two of Cheshire's hidden heritage gems. And with Hare Hill only 30 minutes away from Little Moreton Hall, why not make a day out of visiting both properties?
Why not make a day out in Cheshire by visiting Little Moreton Hall and Hare Hill? Visit Little Moreton Hall in the morning and discover life in Tudor England. Join a free guided tour of the ground floor lead by one of our experienced guides to find out more about this remarkable example of a timber-framed building which has defied logic for over 500 years.
Go on a sensory exploration of the Hall through smell from a Tudor point of view; make sure to pick up a copy of our You Smell! Trail from the Welcome Team and follow the clues around the Hall to discover scents that would have been here in Tudor times. Visitors can also leave details of their own ‘scent memories,’ the smells that provoke a strong reaction and take you back to a particular moment in time, event, person or place. Write about your scent memories, smell modern nostalgic scents in the tent and create a mind map of your particular favourite or memorable scents using a pegboard and wool thread.
Before you leave, pop in for some delicious lunch at Mrs Dale’s Tea Room or Little Tea Room. Enjoy table service and delicious summery treats in Mrs Dale's Tea Room. The Little Tea-room also offers cool drinks and snacks and if the sun is shining you can enjoy your purchase in the Orchard.
Continue your day of discovery and visit Hare Hill, located only 30 minutes away from Little Moreton Hall. You’ll be greeted at the new Visitor Information Centre, where you’ll receive a warm welcome from friendly volunteers. Take a peek inside the greenhouse and find out what's growing as well as what home-grown plants are on sale. Explore the stunning walled garden which is an ideal place to relax after a busy morning at Little Moreton Hall. Take a stroll around the new white borders and discover more smells from the many varieties of plants and fragrances or take a moment to sit down on a bench and enjoy the birdsong. For families, the little ones can burn off some steam by following the famous hare trail around the woodland pathways – you’ll want to find all thirteen before you leave!
This summer enjoy an engaging day out at two of Cheshire’s hidden gems.
