Lovely visit. Interesting and well maintained gardens. Would definitely visit again. Only downside is that there was a 35 minute wait to get served at the café and then an additional wait for our food. Next time I will take a picnic.

We have passed by on lots of occasions and finally decided to visit this weekend. Unfortunately we turned up on a Saturday and were extremely surprised to find it closed. What a very odd day not to open. However we persevered and returned the following day. Also please note gates do not open until the very late time of 11am!!.... More

Visited Cholmondeley gardens for the first time and was very impressed with the grounds and gardens. It was a lovely day and was sorry we didn't take a picnic as there was plenty of places to sit and enjoy the views. The temple garden was beautiful and so peaceful. There happened to be a teddy bear's picnic on the day... More

An outstanding garden and one we've meant to visit for years. So pleased we finally got there. There is a lot of transitional work going on at the moment after the death of Lavinia last year, the new plans should make it even more stunning. Take the walking shoes as it is bigger than you think

Family members came up to stay with us for a few days and decided to take the to Cholmondley Castle and gardens, it's a big estate with well manicured gardens, the animal farm is a little sparse and could do with a little more signage for the children, the gardens are the real treat for us, wonderful ponds and little...

Visited the gardens for the first time last Thursday 23rd June. The grounds are extensive with individually themed gardens. There are walkways between the various gardens with magnificent views of the castle, lakes and surrounding countryside. When you have taken in all there is to see, stop off at the tea rooms for a well deserved drink and/or something to... More

Enjoyed our visit despite the rain! Very polite welcome at entrance. Clean tidy walkways throughout gardens up to castle. Great views. Picturesque gardens with interesting features and well designed. Very well kept. Good to see cattle and calves in fields approaching parking area, but no info as to breeds. Interesting visit.

Last minute decision to visit Cholmondeley castle due to the weather being miserable and cold, however it appeared to be raining everywhere but not at Cholmondeley! Although the entrance fee £7.00 is per adult on a quite day it's so worth it. The grounds are impeccable order and the variety of plants are amazing. We went to the Chapel (bit... More
