Tatton Hall

Trips & Adventures –  3 May 2018

It was a short train journey to Knutsford (as a child, I thought Rupert Bear came from Knutsford – but in fact Rupert lives in a cottage in Nutwood village with his parents, Mr and Mrs Bear).

Knutsford is a pretty town in Cheshire, 14 miles south-west of Manchester and features a market hall where we had refreshments and watched home made sausage rolls being prepared. But there were no taxis in sight, and we had to call Altrincham to arrange for a taxi to take us to Tatton Hall. The entrance to Tatton Hall was quite close but the attractions were over two miles down a long drive through a deer park where over 900 red deer and fallow deer were present.

We dined in “The Stables” cafe (venison was on the menu!) after a short walk in the deer park and before visiting the Mansion House.

The Mansion House was a highlight and well worth the visit.
