Country estate including mansion with important collections and 'below stairs' areas, impressive garden and deer park.

An early Georgian house built around a Tudor core, Dunham Massey was extensively reworked in the early years of the 20th century.

The result is one of Britain's most sumptuous Edwardian interiors, housing exceptional collections of 18th-century walnut furniture, paintings and Huguenot silver, as well as extensive servants' quarters.

Here is one of the North West's great plantsman's gardens with richly planted borders and majestic trees, as well as an orangery, Victorian bark house and well house.

The ancient deer park contains a series of beautiful avenues and ponds and a Tudor mill, originally used for grinding corn but refitted as a sawmill c.1860 and now restored to working order.

Great estate with lavishly decorated house and fine gardens.

Originally a Tudor house, Lyme was transformed by the Venetian architect Leoni into an Italianate palace.

Some of the Elizabethan interiors survive and contrast dramatically with later rooms.

The state rooms are adorned with Mortlake tapestries, Grinling Gibbons wood-carvings and an important collection of English clocks. The 6.8ha (17 acre) Victorian garden boasts impressive bedding schemes, a sunken parterre, an Edwardian rose garden, Jekyll-style herbaceous borders, reflection lake, a ravine garden and Wyatt conservatory.

The garden is surrounded by a medieval deer park of almost 566ha (1400 acres) of moorland, woodland and parkland, containing an early 18th-century hunting tower (The Cage).

Lyme appeared as 'Pemberley' in the BBC's adaptation of Jane Austen's novel Pride and Prejudice.
