An Italianate villa on the National Trust’s Attingham Park estate is again opening to visitors for just a few days this year.

Cronkhill, an 18th century villa which was built to a design by the renowned architect John Nash, is open only six days during each year. Tickets must be pre-booked, even for members of the Trust, and should be secured via or by calling 03442 491895; the site is located on the road between the A458 at Cross Houses and the B4380 at Atcham. Find it by putting SY4 6JP into your sat nav.

Cronkhill was built from the 1780s to resemble a stone Tuscan villa and is the best-known example of Nash’s Italianate villa designs. For non-members of the NT, adult tickets cost £3.50 and children are £1.80 and can be booked for an arrival time of 11am, 12pm, 1.30pm or 2.30pm on Friday 20 and Sunday 22 July and Friday 14 and Sunday 16 September.
