About

The Cholmondeley Family have lived at Cholmondeley since 1200. The present Castle was built in the early 19th Century by the 1st Marquess and was until her death in November 2015 the home of The Dowager Marchioness of Cholmondeley the wife of the late 6th Marquess who spent the greater part of her life creating the magnificent garden at Cholmondeley being determined to create a garden which would have its own identify. These extensive ornamental gardens attract thousands of visitors each year eager to enjoy perfect plantings in these spectacular surroundings. Whatever the season within the gardens there are always plants and shrubs in flower from early bulbs through different types of magnolia, camellia, azalea and rhododendrons. With its beautiful Temple Water Garden, rose garden and many mixed borders, lakeside walk and picnic area, children's play areas, farm animals, including Llamas and Alpacas, ancient private Chapel in the Park and Tea room. This is truly a garden for everybody young and old.

The castle is not open to the members of the public except to groups by special prior arrangement only.
