The estate at Chartwell
Get out and into nature throughout the year here at Chartwell with so much to explore whatever the weather. The estate is a constant hive of activity with the garden and ranger teams hard at work in the busy grounds. Here's just some of the many things we get up to and all there is to see and do.
From Thursday 5 November the house and studio will be closed. The gardens and car park remain open with takeaway refreshments available from the café. Please note that some areas of the woodland and wider estate are waterlogged, access in to or out of the woodland is currently only via the car park.
Originally named for the Chart well on the property, the 800 acres of rolling farmland and woodland have been part of Chartwell since 1848 when the Colquhoun's owned the property. It wasn't until 1921 that the land was split into smaller lots at auction, with the house and 82 acres being bought in 1922 by Churchill.
