Cholmondeley Castle Gardens are said by many to be amongst the most beautiful they have seen being one of Cheshire’s Gardens of Distinction and medal winners at RHS Chelsea and Tatton Park Flower Shows.
Beautifully landscaped these extensive ornamental gardens are dominated by a romantic Castle – a product of the early 19th century which stands on a high rise above a lake.
Visitors can enjoy the tranquil Temple Water Garden with its small lake, enclosed by fine specimen trees and varieties of shrubs which change dramatically with the seasons. The Rose Garden extended in 2017 has been planted with 250 roses, and a new 100m long double mixed border has been created, whilst the Folly Garden and orchid meadows have been extended and refurbished.
The Lily pond situated below the Castle allows access to the Silver Garden and Castle terraces with views across the Parkland, whilst Tower Hill offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy a woodland ramble amongst interesting shrubs and trees under planted with many wild flowers and bulbs.
The Lakeside walk with picnic and children’s play area offers spectacular views of Cholmondeley Castle itself. Truly a garden for everyone young and old.
Visits are offered to the garden only.
