Castles & Country Houses, Gardens & Parks
Chartwell was the family home of Churchill, which he and his family loved so much. The house is surrounded by an Arts and Crafts garden, which were designed by Sir Winston and Lady Churchill themselves.

After they had acquired Chartwell, they made numerous changes, designed by Philip Tilden. 

Today the interior remains the same as it was when the family lived there, with furniture, pictures, books, and many other personal objects.

The garden has much to offer and reflects the wide interests and activities of Churchill and his family, such as growing vegetables, fruit, cut flower beds, roses, swimming pool... There is an elegant grass terrace in the front. Churchill loved brick-laying. He built the summer house, Marycot, for his daughter Mary, and garden walls himself.

Furthermore there are lakes and woodland, to stretch the legs.
