We had a great day out here with some friends but its £18.00 entry fee for a family of 4! The positives: 2 nice smallish play areas that are not overcrowded Plenty of space at the 1st play area/picnic area for kids to runaround and play some games Beautiful gardens small farm area The negatives: No card payments No bins....you...

Peaceful, pretty, wonderful gardens, well kept and good value. Can't complain, but surely it's time to move on and take card payments please.

It was well worth it,gardens well laid out,pleasant tea room,signage to the disabled car park was hit and miss,we finished up in the back yard of the castle,which is out of bounds to the general public,but,non the less well worth a visit,will be making a...

We have just returned following the Llwyngwril Garden Club Annual outing which this year was in Cholmondley Castle Gardens. The trip was a great success thanks to the team, Dilys,Pat and Jenny helping me to organise the day. Cholmondley is not as well sign posted as other gardens in the area but it is a gem of a garden.

Whilst Beeston Castle is well signposted and visited, Cholmondeley Castle is a whole different experience. The grounds are flatter so no effort to walk, there are beautiful gardens in which the flowers and shrubs create a beautiful backdrop. There is a main play are for the children by the mere but another smaller paly area by the castle. The farm... More

Not sure you could class it as a visit to Cholmondeley Castle (as this is closed to the public), more a visit to some glorious and beautifully presented garden. £6 entry per person is a very acceptable price for a day visit. Japanese garden is stunning, well presented and wonderfully peaceful. Small animal area with some healthy and well kept... More

We went here 'on spec' as our plans for bank holiday Monday fell through when we found a lot of surrounding village shops were closed. We are RHS members so free entrance was a bonus but even if we had paid, we would not have been disappointed with our trip - what a beautiful place. We parked and walked up... More

Free for RHS members which is why we stopped on our way from Chester back to London. It took us a while to find (sat nav failed us) but very glad we persisted as it was very very good. Lots of space for kids to run and not feel we were disturbing others. Gardens and grounds incredibly immaculate. Great picnics... More

We had a fantastic day here, the gardens are beautiful, the mere walk is fun, if a little wet! Amazing tea room, space for the kids to roam. Excellent value and well worth the hour drive from our house. It's our new favourite place and we will be back regularly to watch and enjoy the gardens change.

Visited Cholmondeley today for the first time and wonder why on earth I haven't visited before. The castle isn't open to the public but it makes a stunning backdrop to some of the prettiest, most interesting gardens I've ever visited. There's plenty to see and do including a nature trail, Temple Garden, Mosaic, rose garden and the Duckery. There is... More
