This is a small National Trust Property with lovely gardens and walks, one is beside the Rufford Canal. The volunteers are friendly and welcoming, knowledgeable (and more than willing to share their knowledge). Dogs are allowed in the grounds but obviously not in the formal...More
Well worth visiting. We just missed 12 pm talk about The Great Hall. However we were able to join 1 pm garden tour which also gave information about the house. The tour lasted 1 hour.
We went into The Great Hall for 2 pm. Again...More
Visited the property on a very special occasion. On early May/2014, we went to Rufford Hall for a satire performance on Henry VIII's young life ("Interlude of Youth"), having been commissioned to mark the 450th anniversary of William Shakespeare's birth. When we entered the hall,...More
This is a small house which more than makes up for its size by its captivating interior.
The inside is a delight and there are plenty of people around to answer any questions you may have. All in all it is delightful. Enhanced by a...More

Sunday 11 Feb is the first Sunday this year it will be open, from 11am to 4pm (House, Gardens, Tea Room and Gift shop)Check the National Trust Website for more information? It’s a nice place to visit but would take no longer than an hour see it all. The Rufford Spur of the Leeds/Liverpool canal runs along the rear of the hall and allows for a pleasant walk, but you will need to park at Rufford Railway Station car park about half a mile away! Two local restaurants are the Rufford Arms and Hesketh Arms.
