Renishaw Hall and Gardens has been the home of the Sitwell family for nearly 400 years. Each generation has left their mark on the estate, from Sir Sitwell Sitwell's additions to the hall, including the Ballroom and Drawing Room, to Sir George Sitwell laying out the Italianate gardens.
Renishaw makes a relaxing day out for all the family.
