Jacobean mansion nestled in 800 acres of idyllic English countryside
Nantwich, Cheshire, CW5 8LD
The Grade I listed house is recognised for its outstanding architectural and historic interest, and many of the original 17th-century interiors have been beautifully preserved, including the ornate plaster ceilings and elegant oak panelling.
Changes over the years have included a full redesign of the downstairs by architect Samuel Wyatt in 1771, while the addition of an early Victorian wing to the East side significantly enlarged the house with over thirty new rooms. At this time, Dorfold had large stables, its own bakery, butchery, and brewery. It even grew pineapples in the extensive heated greenhouses!
