Rode Hall, Scholar Green, Cheshire, ST7 3QP







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 trend 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 the monthly farmers' market and a welcome treat in the delightful tearooms.

We are now closed for our Summer Season and re-open for Snowdrop Walks on Sat 30th Jan.  The gardens are open alongside the farmers' market on the first Sat of every month.
