I was bought Cream Tea for Two at a Castle for my birthday. The only castle in the South that was part of the deal was Chiddingstone. I had never heard of it and didn't have the highest expectations. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The...More
Looked at the map and found Chiddingstone Castle looked on INET and it was open so drove from Caterham and we're delighted by the country run down and the castle when we arrived. It's not very old although the first house here was in 15...More
Absolutely stunning venue all year round. We got married here last year and it was truly magical. Beautiful castle grounds with lovely tea rooms throughout summer. Great place to walk the dog or to visit the museum inside for a small cost. Natalie and the...More
This is a lovely place to visit. The house has a great collection of artifacts including egyptian and japanese items. The gardens have nice walks, a pretty bridge and an egyptian grass maze. You can walk through the grounds to the National Trust village and...More

Hello Sally, we are so sorry to read that you were disappointed by your visit to Chiddingstone Castle. We would love to speak to understand the situation more fully as you're right that price is very high for a Cream Tea (meant to be £6.50)....More
If you like history you will find this place interesting. It is not a castle.it is well maintained and clean. The grounds have a nice view but not very good for walking around and we did not bother with the cafe. There is very little...More
We have visited this wonderful Castle quite a few times now and each time we go there leads to further delights. We enjoyed a wonderful talk by Anna Pasternak, followed by a light lunch, and purchase of a jar of delicious Chiddingstone honey from the...More
