Whaley Hall is set within five acres. The Estate has a large selection of Shrubs, Rhododendrons and Azaleas, and an area of Woodlands that had a preservation order put on part of them in 1969. 

Within the grounds you will find parts that have been left to become wild, while other parts of the grounds such as the Slopes in front of the Hall are in the process of being revamped. 

In the top garden is a pond, and in 2010 a new Outside Altar was installed to make the Garden of Reconciliation. To go to the bottom garden you will see the slopes that have been well planted with Daffodil bulbs. You will see some rather large steps going down onto the bottom garden.

In the Bottom Garden is the Pond, with a fine selection of stock, you can buy a daily ticket to fish on the pond for £1.00 however you will have to be quick otherwise the Heron or Kingfisher will get their before you ! Also in the bottom garden is the Ascension, this is a large figure of Christ rising up, and was made by someone who came and stayed at the Hall

At the end of the Drive is Todd Brook Reservoir, the work on this Reservoir started around 1836, and feeds the Canal system. You can sail on the Reservoir by contacting the Todd Brook Sailing Club. If you carry on Walking over the Dam this will lead you onto Taxal, and from their you will end up in the Goyt Valley. If you are wanting to go walking while you are staying at Whaley Hall then a Packed lunch can be supplied
