About the garden

Immerse yourself in the beauty, romance and history of Cholmondeley Castle Gardens, with over 70 acres of gardens and parkland to discover. The Cheshire landscape becomes a showcase for the late Lady Cholmondeley’s love and talent for horticulture.

Stroll between beautiful herbaceous borders on the Lavinia Walk. Breathe in the scent of over 250 flowers in the Rose Garden. The Daffodils alone are worth a visit in spring, but you shouldn’t miss the impressive collection of Magnolias, while later in the season Rhododendrons and Camellias bring a vibrant kick of colour to the grounds and wildflower meadows beyond are buzzing with life. In the autumn, it’s the Temple Garden where visitors flock, to see Maples and Magnolias around the two lakes come to fiery life.

When it’s time for a cup of tea and a piece of homemade cake, drop into the Tea Room. You can also get a glimpse of the 19th century castle (a private residence) from a distance along the Deer Park Mere and Natural Trail. If your visit to Cheshire gives you time, The Cholmondeley Arms is on hand for pies and pints.

The most stunning gardens absolutely beautiful. Lovely tea room serving yummy food, toilets and loads parking. Castle is in residence and cannot be accessed but can get close for photos . There is a Chapel which we didn't get to see the area is so vast, but we will definitely return . Check website/ Facebook page only open on certain days, but well worth a visit, you won't be disappointed.

They need signs from the main roads as I circled around and went past it couple times, but it was lovely once we got there! Rose garden was wonderful and friendly peacock was a lovely bonus. More info on plant species would be nice too.

Attended the ‘Jazz’ festival. That term is used very loosely as there was one band and no jazz whatsoever. Poor layout so we had cars driving through the middle and the toilets had queues 50 people deep! The tickets let us walk round the garden but it would be the same price without the ‘festival’. Gardens are not worth it. I did notice the scaffolding around the house so I imagine they put this ‘festival’ on as cheap as possible as lord and lady need a new roof.

Very relaxing walk through the castle gardens, quite a few things to see. £8.50 for adults, £4 for 15s and under. Would recommend taking a look around for an afternoon or so.
