About

Winner of 2015 Garden of the year award from HHA & Christies:-

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

Renishaw Hall Gardens are Italian in design and were laid out over 100 years ago by Sir George Sitwell. The garden is divided into 'rooms' with yew hedges, flanked with classical statues. These 'rooms' have been filled with an impressive collection of plants. The garden is set in acres of parkland with lakeside and nature walks alongside English herbaceous borders and ornamental ponds. Throughout the year are spectacular displays of flowers and plants.

The borders of the Middle Lawn were re-planted in 2017, to a design by RHS Chelsea award winner Arne Maynard. After winning a silver-gilt medal at the first RHS Chatsworth flower show, the Visit Peak District garden designed by Lee Bestall was transported to Renishaw, and planted next to the yuccary. Lee is now in the process of redesigning the border in the Ballroom Garden.

In the Stable Block is the Sitwell Museum which houses the incredible collection from the 'Sitwell Trio' - Edith, Osbert and Sacheverell. There is also the exhibition space with the history of the garden over the last 400 years and a collection of uniforms and dresses belonging to the family. You can also enjoy a meal, glass of Renishaw wine or coffee and a cake in The Café at Renishaw, and find some great gifts in the Renishaw Hall shop and plant sales.

Renishaw Hall is still very much a family home which adds to its unique atmosphere. A tour of the Hall will allow you to see some of the spectacular collections of art and furniture that have been acquired by generations of Sitwells. It is quite literally a treasure trove, of inestimable value to students and art lovers alike.

The Hall is available for hire as a film location and is open for group tours. Booking is essential.
