Chastleton Houe and Garden

The garden at Chastleton presents an intimate and beautiful setting for the house.

Stroll through the beautiful and intriguing Jacobean garden. Spot a 400 year old tree, find the kitchen garden and count the topiary in the Best Garden.

With views from the windows which draw you out to the topiary, kitchen garden and wilderness, it's up to you whether you explore or just admiring our magnificent trees.

We take a unique approach here at Chastleton by conserving and preserving the house in the condition in which it was found.
