Renishaw Hall is the home of Sir Reresby and Lady Sitwell.

Sir George Sitwell created the Italian gardens at Renishaw Hall over a hundred years ago. The 7 acres of formal gardens are set high in the hills of northern England but have a southerly aspect and are sheltered by magnificent trees.

The Italian style gardens include statues, shaped yew hedges, shrub roses, a water garden, fountains and lakes.

The present owner has enlarged and enhanced the borders and he has also added a great jet off water, similar to the Emperor Fountain at Chatsworth. A woodland walk has recently been opened.

Renishaw Hall is surrounded by 300 acres of mature parkland. (The house is open to the public by written application only).

The Sitwell Museum and Art Gallery are situated in the Georgian stables beside the craft work shops and cafe.

The museum gives a insight into the lives of the fascinating Sitwell family and the art gallery contains Fiori de Henriques sculptures. The cafe has a display of contemporary art.
