Welcome to Rode Hall

Join us on a brief yet fascinating journey into the history of Rode Hall, one of Cheshire's most exquisite country houses.  Discover more about its rich heritage and how the Baker Wilbraham family who have owned it for approaching three hundred and fifty years have contended with the challenges of social change and architectural trends through to its ongoing conservation and restoration today.

Enjoy a whistle-stop tour of the highs and lows of the house and how one family have ensured its safe upkeep and place in the community over the years.  Today. it is enjoyed by families from far and wide who come to enjoy the house and splendid gardens, fantastic events including our Snowdrop and Bluebell Walks, monthly farmers' market and a welcome treat in the delightful tearooms.
