Dorfold Hall is a Jacobean country house, built in 1616 for Ralph Wilbraham. Its beautiful plaster ceilings are complemented by interesting furniture and pictures.

The beautiful Jacobean brickwork of Dorfold Hall

Sir Nikolaus Pevsner considered Dorfold to be one of the two finest Jacobean houses in Cheshire. Some of the rooms were altered in the 18th century by Samuel Wyatt, and many of the interiors retain their original plaster ceilings and oak panelling. The most outstanding is the first floor Drawing Room with its barrel vault, strapwork and pendants. The portraits reflect 400 years of continuous family ownership.
