Completed in 1612, this is one of the finest and most complete Jacobean houses in England, with scenic gardens and a topiary that are truly Jacobean and Elizabethan in style.

We went here on a recommendation, firstly the car park was full so we had to park in the mud and get other visitors to push us out. The house is a walk away from the car park which is not bad, however the introduction...More

My friend and I had arranged to meet up at Chastleton House on 15th December. I was looking forward to seeing the house decorated for a Victorian Christmas especially as I work in a museum delivering Victorian sessions. My friend had checked the opening times...More

I think people writing poor reviews about Chastleton House should have researched in advance what they were going to. It isn't difficult to find out that there is no cafe on site, nor that the car park is some distance from the House and up...More

This is not your normal National Trust house and garden - and that is exactly what makes it an amazing place to visit! They have chosen to leave the house in the exact condition in which it was last lived in during the 1900's. That...More

For us this was a complete waste of time. Collection of rooms with no real interest or atmosphere. The car park was really small and a walk from the house, there were plenty of staff trying to be helpful but this really didn’t help.

An unusual property for National Trust, but effective. The gardens are not large but worth a walk around, some topiary is quite fun. The house does not have a coffee shop but does have toilets near reception. However a new reception area is being built...More

Visistec this place today and it was magical. A perfectly preserved snapshot of Jacobean country life. A real gem and as real an experience of history you will ever encounter. So unexpected and a must for anyone visiting the Cotswolds.

Hi, I'm not the owner, wish I was, but NT got in before me. Joking aside I didn't see any dogs on my visit, but having looked on their page, it says dogs on leads are allowed in surrounding fields. Hope this helps
