This is the third visit I have made to this beautiful place, each Autumn I have witnessed the spectacular colour changes in the foliage. The sweeping grassy areas, immaculate gardens and the majestic castle make this a special place. There is an aviary, some alpaca, llamas, pigs, goats, and horses. This year it was full of carved pumpkins with seasonal... More

Four of us spent almost four hours walking around these beautiful gardens, great value at £6 each. Stunning Japanese garden, animal farm, duckery, although no ducks could be found! We were able to walk up and onto the castle terrace and the views are breathtaking. The chapel is beautifully maintained and well worth a visit to read the family history.... More

First visit here and enjoyed it very much. Although had sat nav found the entrance a bit difficult to locate due to lack of signage. Lovely natural garden with plenty to see. Walking around the grounds and the woods was very relaxing. Colours on trees just beginning to change and will visit again for the full effect. Nice plant nursery,... More

Possibly the best kept garden we have ever visited. Well thought out borders, meticulously trimmed lawns, really beautiful setting for the Castle. Has to be seen.

Lovely Gardens and an interesting walks. I was on crutches but managed quite comfortably round the grounds and glad we came. The gardens are really nice and if you have small children there are some Alpacas and Lamas to look at as well

The last day of our holiday- the weather was awful but we decided to head off to Cholmondeley as planned. We parked up by the tearooms (ample allocation of disabled parking bays) and headed inside for a warm drink and to see if the rain would subside. Delightful staff chatted to us about our holiday while we sipped our tea,... More

Lovely gardens and nice walk through. The forests enjoyed history of chapel. Not a lot to do if it happens to be raining. Had a lovely very reasonable lunch I tea rooms except for fighting wasps killed 3 while having meal. Disappointed we couldn't look around castle but glad that someone is living there and keeping it running.

We travelled 60 miles to visit Cholmondley Castle Gardens today only to be turned away at the entrance, as there was the Pony club championships on!! Why on earth did it not state on the website that the gardens would be closed to the public while this event was taking place? Such poor communication, very disappointing, even more so as... More

Lovely gardens and grounds. Kept very well and always colour. Make sure you explore the whole grounds and the tea shop is a pleasant place to sit. Excellent if there is a cricket match on. Check the times of opening - don't assume its open!
