I took a detour via Stow to go to NT Charlecote Park and saw the sign for Chastleton and thought I would visit it on the way home! Check opening times on their website/app! I’m used to restored and polished NT properties but this is...More

A National Trust Property of an old manor house whose owners over the hundreds of years struggled with money for its upkeep, so it never really got modernized by successive family members. So it is a fine example of a medieval Manor House as is....More

This is somewhat different from the average NT house in that it has not been restored to immaculate condition but is actually quite cluttered inside and rather worn in places. It would have been nice to have been able to take our dogs in the...More

Lovely early 17th century house and garden built by a country gentleman who then had no money left for its upkeep. Successive family members had the same problem. National Trust have decided (rightly) to do the bare minimum of maintenance do preserve the look and...More

Arrived prior to opening time, the ladies at the church next door were raising some money with a tea and cake stall (well worth the 2 pounds) the house itself is amazing - and the gallery room is awesome.

Really enjoyed my visit here, and loved that the house is in its total original state as when taken over by the National Trust. Won't say anymore as I think you should go and enjoy for yourself. No National Trust tea room, but you can...More

Visited Chastleton on a day trip from the South West, and the drive up through the rolling hills of the Cotswolds was fantastic. As many other reviews have mentioned tea, coffee and cake is served from the church by volunteers, and as far as I’m...More

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
