Little Moreton Hall Congleton
Member Name: poppyash
Advantages: Takes you back in time
Disadvantages: Limited access for pushchairs and wheelchairs
Little Moreton Hall is a National Trust property in Congleton, Cheshire. It is on the A34 four miles from Congleton itself. For Sat. Nav uses the postcode is CW12 4SD.
It is open most weekends throughout the year and Wednesday to Sundays, from March to October. Although it is open on Bank Holidays.
Entrance fee including the Gift Aid is £6.75 per adult and £3.30 per child and family tickets can be bought from £16.80. However, pushchair access is limited in some areas, so front carrying baby slings are available on request.
This property is a timber - framed, moated tudor manor house set around a cobbled court yard. One of the main features is a magnificant long gallery but the whole place is brought to life by the free guided tours. The tour guides are so enthusiastic and keen to give you an insight into what life was like in Tudor times and are willing to answer questions. There are also activity sheets available for children and adults.
There are the usual gift shop and licensed restaurants assosiated with the National Trust but the restaurant does serve home cooked food made from local produce and there is a separate children's menu. There is also, an ice cream kiosk, in the picnic area, on the way to the small compact gardens.
It is well worth a visit.
Summary: A very interesting, historic property brought to life by the guided tours.
