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.

Thought this place was beautiful but a steep charging price to look around some gardens (£8/9 per adult). Really need to change this but really lovely place to visit wouldn't go back there again unless they lowered, even if it was £4 per person is more reasonable .

Fantastic grounds and gardens to enjoy, with a lovely pub located nearby. I visited as part of the Castle Race Series weekend and it was a great day out for all the family.
