Capesthorne Hall is a Stately Home set in 100 acres of picturesque Cheshire parkland and has been touched by nearly 1,000 years of English history. The Jacobean style Hall, with its collection of fine art, marble sculptures, furniture, tapestries and antiques from Europe, America and the Far East from 1719.
The present Squire is Sir William Bromley-Davenport, former Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire whose family have owned the land since Domesday times when they were appointed custodians of the Royal Forest of Macclesfield.
The spectacular facade of the Hall with its park is flanked by three lakes, trees and rolling pastures. Its Georgian family chapel overlooks the herbaceous borders that lead to a modern gazebo. There are small individual gardens, a cascade and woodland walk with the remains of an Ice House and curious Swallow Hole. The Butler’s Pantry tea room serves wonderful homemade refreshments and the delicious afternoon teas are always a popular choice.
The magnificent Hall and Lakeside Wing can be hired for wedding receptions and civil ceremonies/ partnerships. It can also be hired for corporate occasions, reception, dinners, meetings and family celebrations. Capesthorne Hall, Gardens and Chapel are open to the public on Sundays, Mondays and Good Friday from April to October inclusively.
