The Beautiful romantic gothic style castle at Cholmondeley proudly overlooks 50 acres of stunning ornamental gardens and 670 acres of historic parkland. The present day castle was built between 1801 and 1804 with the addition of the turrets completing the work in 1817. The gardens at Cholmondeley have been extensively developed over the past 60 years by Lady Lavinia Cholmondeley, a talented plantswoman with a passion for plants and gardens.
During this period the gardens have become one of the best kept secrets in the north of England with its great diversity and unique plant collections. The garden is a delight at all times of year from its huge drifts of naturalised Daffodils to the blaze of autumn colour that sweeps through the garden in October. Around the Castle is a series of terraces at varying elevations that give a simple formal feel and include the newly re-designed silver garden with its mounds of soft silver foliage punctuated with the tall spikes of Salvia and Eryngium species. Further down the mount below the croquet lawn are the grass beds which offer interest in every season. The glade is a sheltered spot where a mix of flowering shrubs and subtle under-planting allow you to meander your way to the Rose garden which is an intimate space where the heady scents of Roses and Lavenders help to create a very relaxing environment. From here descend the steps to the fabulous herbaceous borders, re-designed for 2014, and then take the path through the Laburnum grove towards the tranquil Duckery water garden with its romantic folly and woodland planting. Then wander through the Silver Wedding Arboretum with its superb collection of trees to the Temple Garden. This area is the "piece de resistance" of Cholmondeley with plant interest and colour at all times of year, architectural entrances, the Temple itself in the centre of the lake, and the rock garden and cascade. Within all this the garden is home to fine collections of Magnolia, Rhododendron, Camellia and trees of all from and size that help make this garden what it is today. A true hidden gem.
