    From the moment we walked through the door to be greeted by Nathan through to the gin tour with Andy, the visit was a 5 star experience. Andy was very knowledgeable and the two hour tour flew by. Excellent discount on anything purchased whilst we were there as well.

    Thoroughly recommenced and looking to book the whisky tour next

    Thanks Guys.

    Brought our granddaughter for a day out during half term and we all thoroughly enjoyed the curious kids show and the capcom go in the dome. There are plenty of interesting and interactive displays, that provide intrest for adults and children alike. We were glad to see that the whispering dishes are still there but we were disappointed that the planetarium hasì gone and we also remember a walk that had scale display of the planets .

    An excellent museum, with many machines still in working order. We paid for the guided tour, which was well worth it: Dan our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic; he adapted the tour to the interests of those on it. They expect to re-open Paradise Mill early in 2024, so we will visit again soon.

    What an absolute gem of a place. We visited Blaze farm today. We were greeted by a lovely young lady who went above and beyond to make us feel very welcome. (BRILLIANT). We will definitely be back and recommending this place to family and friends.

    Was a lovely walk but definitely not wheelchair friendly. Definitely recommend taking lots of water and using a backpack carrier if you have small children.

    Lovely visit to this friendly family home. The tour guides were amazing. They were very knowledgeable and helpful with questions. The inside was fascinating- especially the room with the organ.

    The gardens were also nice to wander around.
    Unusual to see a statue of Napoleon in an English garden.

    We attempted the maze but didn’t get to the middle. I believe if you do it’s the family crest at the centre.

    Opening days are limited but worth a visit.

    The cafe is run by the local hospice charity and has a lovely selection of cake. Proceeds to East Cheshire Hospice which is a nice thing to see.

    I came here for the Cheshire Classic Car show in the grounds of the hall on 17th July 2022. It was a great show of classic cars, with the hall as an elegant background. The organisation was good, the car parking staff were so pleasant and there were so many interesting car owners proudly showing off their cars. It was £10 per person entry.

    Inside the hall was a little disappointing I'm sad to say. The staff were lovely to chat to but there's not much of the place open and photography is prohibited. I can understand the concerns as criminals have cataloged valuables previously. This was an extra £4 each to look inside.

    Refreshments are available by the lake and I can see why this is a good venue for a wedding.

    An enjoyable day.

    We walked the circular route via the forest bridleway from our phone app. Lovely 2 hour walk mainly on good solid paths. Some fantastic views and places to sit for a picnic along the way.
    We parked at Trentabank car park where there are toilets and a hot drinks/ food van. The oatcakes smelt gorgeous.
    We will be back to see it in different seasons and would recommend to anyone.

    Love the settings, the friendly staff and the clientele.
    Great vibe.
    We just went to our first climbing competition and it was really welcoming and inclusive. The route setting was really really good. Entertaining problems with plenty to go at!
    Every time we go there's at least one wall completely reset keeping it fresh for members.

    Nice local products: honey and apple juice. On your visit, you will find a nice leaflet about Ian’s Curtis life in the town.

    What a superb setting with great friendly staff and, most importantly, fantastic beer.

    I can not praise this place anymore, if I could give it 6 stars, I would.

    Great Pork Scratchinhs as well.
