Erddig House

Erddig House

Details

Widely acclaimed as one of Britain's finest historic houses, Erddig is a fascinating yet unpretentious early 18th-century country house reflecting the upstairs downstairs life of a gentry family over 250 years.

Erddig’s story is all about relationships – those of the family, the servants and the wider community. It is unpretentious, unconventional and unexpected, always offering a friendly welcome.

It was home to a family that took an almost curatorial attitude to their possessions. Many are recorded in verse, as are generations of servants whose portraits were commissioned by the family. With their working areas almost unchanged, Erddig is a place where servants and their lives are not forgotten.

Upstairs is a treasure trove of fine furniture, textiles and wallpapers, while outdoors you can explore the 18th-century formal garden with grand lawns, avenues of pleached limes and a Victorian parterre. Erddig’s beautiful gardens welcome families to play today, as photographs show the Yorkes doing a century ago. Fruit trees still grow here, as records show they did in Joshua Edisbury’s garden in 1700.

For 200 years, the parkland has been open to the local community as a place of tranquility or adventure. The 486-hectare (1,200-acre) landscape pleasure-park, designed by William Emes, is a haven of peace and natural beauty, perfect for riverside picnics. Discover the ‘cup and saucer’ or explore the remains of a Norman motte and bailey castle. From the earliest origins of Wrexham to the technology of an 18th-century designed landscape. All around, tenant farmers continue the work of generations.
