TILSTONE LODGE is situated on the edge of the rural hamlet of Tilstone Fearnall just beyond the picturesque village of Tarporley. Occupying a rural position in a scenic part of South Cheshire, the estate extends to approximately 115 acres (46.54 ha) within a ring fence bordered by woodland providing a truly private setting.
Tilstone Lodge supports an impressive period house approached through mature parkland via twin entrances with guardian lodges at the end of each drive. The house which is centrally situated within its land stands in beautiful gardens and enjoys a southerly aspect overlooking a magnificent lake. In addition to the main house there are cottages, stable yard, offices, walled kitchen garden and farm buildings providing purchasers with the rare opportunity to acquire a traditional estate which remains completely intact. Tilstone Lodge dates from 1832 and was commissioned by Admiral Tollemache whose family subsequently built and resided nearby at Peckforton Castle. Admiral Tollemache retained the celebrated architect, Thomas Harrison to design Tilstone Lodge and who had previously been responsible for Chester Castle and the Grosvenor Bridge overlooking the racecourse.
