A beautiful environment with lakes and ponds surrounded by a variety of luxurious plants. The Gunnera was particularly impressive around some of the ponds. In spite of the foul weather we enjoyed our walk around the grounds. The House itself was what one would expect...More

Most delightful House and gardens, the views across the Downs are lovely. We had the feeling that unlike a lot of large houses in the N.T. spectrum anyone could feel at home in the warmth and non splendor of Chartwell. We found the staff well...More

I usually spend at least an hour in the house, there is so much to see, and the stewards good to talk to. You could spend all day in the garden and the grounds, and they are so autumnal at the moment - lovely colours

The current road works mean you can end up going on a long and unnecessary diversion. Just go down the usual road - Mapleton Road from the north (m25/ Westerham) - and ignore the diversion/ road close signs. The site has lots of different gradients/...More

I didn't realise that Chartwell was part of the National Trust. As we are members we made an impromptu visit. I am so pleased that we did. It's a behind the scenes view of a great man and his family. To go into the house...More

After a visit to Chartwell, one much better understands the multi-dimensional character of Winston Churchill and his importance in world history. Also, the great influence that his wife Clementine Churchill had on his life. A great woman. The house is grand, with magnificent gardens. It...More

This is really nice and so important place to visit, however as normal the National Trust let people down, no informative guides, they just sit and wait for you to ask a question! Being the home of the greatest English person and having personally contributed...More

We only had 1.5 hours left so we spend the time in Chartwell Gardens and enjoyed the historic spirit with the autumn sun. When you arrive and walk up to the house you will be simply amazed by the views and the surroundings. We were...More

Everything about our visit was good. We spent over two hours in this lovely family house and learned a lot about the Churchills. This was followed by a visit to Winston's studio (there are 150 of his paintings there)which showed that he was an accomplished...More

We enjoyed visiting. It’s a house of historical interest for sure. But it’s not as big as you might think and only the principle rooms are open to the public. Stewards are on hand if you have a question and are friendly and knowledgeable. Sir...More

It's not the best for the disabled, I'm afraid, but don't let that put you off totally. I took my late partner there in a wheelchair and the staff did their level best to make her visit enlightening and enjoyable.

I saw a lift and I also saw staff helping someone with mobility issues, but not inside the house. But at least that says they are disability friendly. Why don't you give them a ring? If you are using a wheelchair, that... More

We stayed at The Bakery at Tatsfield nr. Westerham. Would highly recommend the accommodation and restaurant and it is near Chartwell - about 6 miles away I think. Enjoy your trip!
