  • AN amazing property and so easy to imagine history in the making. Tours around the house are well worth it - even if you have to wait in the gardens or the cafe! The grounds are big enough to cope wit...  more »
  • OK....so the scanner to get your National Trust car park ticket didn't work. Plenty of parking and then went to the cafe which is brilliant. Not so much just because you can get good value food and dr...  more »
  • Chartwell was Winston Churchill’s family home and I love the fact that you get a real feel of how life was lived as well as being in his study. The house is impressive without being like a stately hom...  more »

  • Didn't know that Winston was such a prodigious painter. Really very good as well. The house is interesting, the paintings were exciting and the ground extensive. Maintained so you can see how it was while Mr Churchill was in residence. There's enough outside to occupy the children even if it is rolling down the grassy banks. Lots of walks in the area as well especially to and from Emmetts Garden. Check the web!
  • Beautiful house and grounds, great for a short walk with the dogs (not allowed in the house, and must be kept on lead in the gardens) in the woodland surrounding. Sizable canteen serving good coffee and reasonably priced sensible grub. Knocked a start off for lack of rubbish bins. National trust so remember your membership card or expect to pay £5-10 for the privilege.
  • what can i say about Chartwell. What a beautiful house and gardens this place is. I've always enjoyed visiting old houses and gardens since i was little but this place has to be one of my favorite houses of all time. So much History is locked within these grounds, it almost makes you feel like you've gone back in time. You feel like Churchill is still alive and just painting one of his paintings somewhere in the garden. The only down side to Chartwell is like most other old houses and gardens is the fact there isnt much to do on rainy days. This place is best Visited on sunny days to really appreciate its glory. The views are amazing.
  • Beautiful historical place, home of the late Winston Churchill. Cafe on site. Lovely gardens.
  • Great family day out. Scenic views country side. Well maintained gardens. Cafe good value, even though staff bit dour.
