Situated in the south of Disley, Cheshire, the Lyme Park Estate is managed by the National Trust. It is the largest house in Cheshire and is located in a deer park. The entire estate consists of a mansion surrounded by formal gardens and a deer park that falls in the Peak District National Park. The mansion has a mixture of styles that were modified by Giacomo Leoni in the 1720’s. The mansion predates back to 1346 when it belonged to Sir Thomas Danyers. Later on, in 1388, the mansion was passed on to the Leghs of Lyme. The house has a remarkable history and a beautiful interior as well as an exterior.
