Cholmondeley Castle




This spectacular hilltop castle and gardens are set deep into the south Cheshire countryside. Although the Castle itself is not open to the public, it contributes greatly to the beauty and appeal of the surrounding gardens. The gardens are vibrant and colourful throughout the year, ranging from vast swathes of daffodils in the spring to cherries and maples in the autumn.

Cholmondeley is most recognised for its impressive Temple Garden. Constructed late in the nineteenth century and renovated in 1955, its centrepiece is an irregularly shaped pool containing many giant Koi carp.

Other gardens include the Silver Garden, the Rose Garden and the Lily Pond garden all planted in the last 50 years, with the present owners particularly keen on improving the gardens. This diverse and dynamic landscape is a pleasure to visit in all seasons.
