Cholmondeley Castle Gardens

Malpas, Cheshire

Quick Guide
See below grid for details

Extensive ornamental gardens dominated by a romantic Gothic Castle, built in 1801 of local sandstone.

Gardens include a Temple water garden, rose garden, Terrace Gardens, and Silver Gardens. There is also a lake which offers lakeside walks.  A woodland walk is well planted with rhododendrons, magnolias etc.

Other facilities include a picnic site and children's play area, rare breeds or farm animals, including Llamas and African pygmy goats, children's corner with rabbits, chickens and free flying aviary birds.

The gardens are romantic, beautiful, wild - these gardens stir up emotion in whoever visits them. The stunning landscaping creates colourful areas that change dramatically, season upon season, such as the rose garden, the laburnum grove and the temple garden with its small lake full of giant koi carp, swimming lazily among the water lilies.

This page is a Quick Guide, the idea of Quick Guides is to allow very basic information and linking forward information to be added to the system rather than having to wait until a full location guide has been developed. It should therefore be considered a development stage rather than a finished objective. Once more information is known the objective is to create either a Location or Featured Location page which has two grids and far more information.

Please let us know any other information that we can add to the Grid(s) or page and any errors that you discover. Before making a long trip to any location it is always wise to double check the current information, websites like magazines may be correct at the time the information is written, but things change and it is of course impossible to double check all entries on a regular basis. If you have any good photographs that you feel would improve the illustration of this page then please let us have copies. In referring to this page it is helpful if you quote both the Page Ref and Topic or Section references from the Grid below. To print the planning grid select it then right click and print the selected area.

Please submit information on locations you discover so that this system continues to grow.
