Flanked by the river Manifold, Hinckley woods and the rounded hills of Thorpe Cloud, Ilam Park is an enchanting oasis of tranquillity. Remove yourself from the rugged landscape of the countryside as you are immersed in the formal grandeur of the manicured landscape.

Ilam Park, at the southern end of the Manifold valley, consists of Ilam Hall (Youth Hostel) and remnants of its gardens, ancient semi-natural woodland designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), and open parkland with well preserved 'ridge and furrow' from medieval agriculture. There are large areas of grassland around the visitors' car park and the Hall where visitors can enjoy the peace and quiet of this beautiful setting. A small garden has been created on the site of the old Italian Garden situated below the stableblock.

While you here why not visit our Manifold Tea rooms - Traditional tea room serving hot and cold food. Range of drinks, snacks and light lunches including home-made specials available and a children's menu.
