Adlington Tea Room Takeover is back for this summer! - East Cheshire Hospice

Adlington Tea Room Takeover is back for this summer!

Enjoy a leisurely Sunday afternoon tea room treat at Adlington Hall this summer and help East Cheshire Hospice.

The charity’s volunteers are serving hot drinks and home-made cakes every Sunday between 2 pm and 5 pm until August 28.

The only exception in July 24 when the venue is closed for a private event.

All proceeds go to the Hospice which raised £1,823 last summer from the venture.

Catering is provided in the traditional tea room in the main building at Adlington Hall, set in  picturesque grounds.

Hospice volunteers (from left) Velda Price, Simon Price, Paige Lester and Liz Donoghue prepare to serve guests at Adlington Hall.

Guests do not need to book teas and, if they wish, can also pay to walk through the hall and gardens at one of England’s finest country homes.

Adlington has been the ancestral home of the Legh family for more than seven centuries.

Camilla Legh is a Hospice Vice President and has volunteered for the charity for several years, helping with flower arranging.

She opened up the extensive gardens in March for the charity’s Memory Walk.

Hospice Community Fundraiser Carley Macey said: “The tea room is an ideal setting and we hope everyone who goes along enjoys the amazing home-made cakes prepared by our volunteers.

“By supporting this initiative, it’s a great way to support your local hospice.”

Adlington Hall is available all year for pre-booked group tours of 20 people minimum. For details visit

Highlights include The Great Hall which houses The Great Organ, arguably one of the country’s most important 17th century musical instruments.
