Capture the splendor of early-18th-century living at Erddig, one of England’s finest stately homes. Set on 485 hectares (1,200 acres) of country gardens, the house offers a thorough look at the functioning of an 18th-century estate. Tour the upstairs rooms to admire the lavish antique furnishings before heading downstairs to see the servants' quarters and work spaces. Walk or take a horse-drawn carriage ride through the gardens to visit the many outbuildings that line the property.

Lovely afternoon walking around the beautiful grounds. Shame only the ground floor of the house was open. The rest should be opening next week. Lovely tea rooms. Very reasonable and good choice. Gardens were outstanding. Definitely visit again.
Over the years we have visited Erddig many times, we enjoy our time there so much and today was just as enjoyable. Had a very warm welcome. We looked around the house first, which was very pleasant downstairs considering how hot today was. As we proceeded upstairs electric fans had been positioned in areas that doesn't benefit from an open window. There were lots of rooms open for our viewing. The staff were very informative, giving lots of information about the decor of the rooms near to them. The gardens were as beautiful as ever with such a variety of different trees, shrubs and flowers. It was lovely to sit on a bench in the shade watching a pair of coots enjoying the water and listening to children laughing in the play area. We saw many different age groups enjoying Erddig and it is definitely somewhere to visit with the family.
