    This rural ‘honeypot’ attracts thousands of visitors each year, eager to enjoy this eclectic plant collection in these spectacular surroundings. The Cholmondeley Family have resided in this part of Cheshire since the Norman times and when the late Lavinia, Marchioness of Cholmondeley came to live at Cholmondeley she set about creating a ‘garden of great romance’ introducing many specimen trees and shrubs, including rare magnolias, camellias and rhododendrons. Her legacy continues today with new developments in the Rose, Temple 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. Whilst the Deer Park Mere and nature trail offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy the tranquillity and beauty of the surroundings with magnificent views of Cholmondeley Castle. The Tea Room is situated in the heart of the gardens and with the children’s adventure den, play area and picnic area this is truly a garden for everyone young and old.
