About Us

 

The Cholmondeley Family have lived at Cholmondeley since the Norman times.  The gardens were originally laid out in the early 19th Century using architectural elements from the formal gardens of the Old Hall.  When the late Lavinia, Marchioness of Cholmondeley came to live at Cholmondeley in 1947 together with her husband the 6th Marquess she set about creating ‘a garden of great romance’ introducing many specimen trees and shrubs, including rare magnolias, camellias and rhododendrons being determined to create a garden which would have its own identity.  Her legacy is continued today with new developments in the Rose, Temple Water Garden and Folly Gardens together with the creation of a 100m long double herbaceous border, a fitting tribute to Lady Cholmondeley’s life and work in the gardens.

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 Deer Park Mere and nature trail, home to many different varieties of waterfowl and freshwater fish with its picnic area and play area offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy the tranquillity and beauty of the surroundings with magnificent views of Cholmondeley Castle.

The Cholmondeley Family Chapel of St. Nicholas lies to the north-east of the Castle.  The oldest surviving part of the Chapel dates from the 15th Century and the Chapel is well worth a visit to enjoy is tranquil atmosphere, and the fine 17th Century carved oak screen and rare examples of early Flemish stained glass.  The Chapel is still used for services and family occasions. Whilst the Cholmondeley Tea Room is situated in the heart of the gardens.  This is truly a garden for everybody, young and old. 


The castle is not open to members of the public.
