Top 100 Attractions Review

Despite being here for well over 200 years, Cholmondeley Castle stands majestically surveying the land it surrounds. But when it comes to history, the Cholmondeley estate is steeped in it going back at least 800 years. Up until the recent death of Lavinia, Dowager Marchioness of Cholmondeley, the 7th Marquess, David, spent a lot of his time in Norfolk home Houghton Hall also featured in this book. The Marquess now divides his time between Norfolk and Cheshire, which has allowed a new era to begin here at Cholmondeley. The head gardener Barry Grain is part of that new era and joined the estate team in 2013, it has to be said he really is breathing a lease of new life into the gardens and surrounding parklands. Barry and his well oiled team have got a huge number of refreshing projects and ideas and from what I have seen so far, I absolutely love. Cholmondeley Estate is one of Cheshires biggest hidden gems and I cannot wait to return in three years when I rewrite this book.

Cholmondeley Castle Gardens

Attraction in Cheshire

Cholmondeley Castle Gardens

The romantic castle - a product of the early 19th century - stands on a high rise above a lake. The castle is surrounded by sweeping lawns and a variety of mature trees, including cedars of lebannon, oak, and chestnut. Cholmondeley Castle Garden is said by many to be among the most romantically beautiful gardens they have seen. Even the wild orchids, daisies and buttercups take on an aura of glamour in this beautifully landscaped setting.
The gardens surrounding the castle provide a lovely mix of colour and height, with intriguing walks around the lake. There is a temple water garden, rose garden, a variety of mixed borders. Plantings are planned to provide colour at all times of the year.

There are children’s play areas, children’s den, picnic area,  and Tea Room.
