We started at the Temple Garden, which blends attractive planting with a small lake and statues and architectural features. It isn't huge, so don't go expecting something like Stourhead, but it is charming all the same and even in April there was plenty of interest to look at. We continued along the recently planted Lavinia Walk to the Rose Garden.... More

My family & I went to Cholmondeley Castle and gardens during summer, and had a lovely time walking around around the beautiful gardens. The castle was built in 1801, and is stunning. It's £6 for adult entrance, and is reasonably price due to cost of keeping the lovely gardens maintained, and for public viewing. We had a lovely lunch in... More

£6 per person seemed quite steep a price to pay. No concessions for seniors made it quite an expensive walk. it did not take us long to look round the gardens and it was too wet to explore round the lake. Rather disappointed with the aviaries as the poor birds had no outdoor greenery to perch on and we saw... More

On a late summer Sunday in the sunshine, this is as good as it gets. It is not really a garden for kids to run about in. It is one for wandering, sitting, contemplating. Imaginatively planted with good use of slopes, rocks and water. It is a delight

A piece of tranquility in the Cheshire countryside. Beautiful views, well kept gardens and easy accessible walkways. On busy days, eg Teddy Bears Picnic, there are certain areas that get extremely busy however there is always somewhere that you can go to enjoy a peaceful walk. Strolling to the chapel is usually a nice walk, often you can see wildlife... More

After visiting several gardens of large houses I expected these to be more extensive. The first area, around a small lake, is impressive but the remainder turned out to be fairly limited walks over small rises. They gardens are very well kept with specimen trees but I got around them in less than 45 minutes. The map makes the area... More

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.
