Arley has been the much loved family home of my forbears since the fifteenth century. It is now a huge pleasure to be able to share this beautiful place with so many others. The following pages of this website describe in some detail the facilities which we have to offer.
Together with our dedicated staff my wife Zoë and I constantly strive to ensure that a visit to Arley for whatever purpose will be enjoyable and fulfilling.
Lord Ashbrook Lectures in America – “In March 2012 My wife Zoe and I visited the United States with a view to my giving a lecture on Arley Hall and its gardens. The invitation to do this came from an old friend, P.Allen Smith, of Little Rock, Arkansas. Allen is a distinguished garden designer and host of television programmes in the USA.
I gave the lecture at three different locations – First, at the Winterthur Museum, Delaware, then at the Clinton School of Public administration, part of the Clinton Library, Little Rock – and finally at the Carriage House Restaurant, Natchez, Miississippi.”
Arley is a place of enormous character, charm and interest. Visitors are frequently struck by the warm and intimate atmosphere and the feeling that Arley is a much-cherished family home.
The Gardens, which are amongst the finest in Britain, are outstanding for their vitality, variety and historical interest and are particularly celebrated for the magnificent double herbaceous border. The Hall is an impressive example of a Victorian country house built in the Elizabethan style.
