Wonderful for a walk around the grounds. You can walk to the village. But for a visit to the house itself, not an good idea. You pay 9,50 per person and you don't see a lot of the way people lived in those days. I personally want to see more rooms and a few rooms were more like a museum with cabinets.
The house is beautiful from the outside, the tearoom is very English and the staff was friendly! There is a little vintage shop and a little shop at the exit.
When you walk to the village, there is a tearoom too, a shop and the church.
For a lovely day, you don't need to visit the castle itself.

We are pleased that you enjoyed the peace and tranquility of our beautiful grounds. We are proud that we are actually an accredited museum, as well as a historic house, hence your description of "rooms were more like a museum" - this is what we are! We house the collections of the the last private owner - Denys Eyre Bower, who was a gifted collector of Asian art, Egyptian artefacts, Stuart relics and Buddhist objects. His collections have very recently been described as "absolutely fascinating" and "splendid" (in our visitors book) - we are sorry if you didn't find this to be the case. I am wondering if you saw the White Rose Drawing Room, Housekeepers Room, Servants Hall, Victorian Kitchen, Brides Bedroom, and the Great Hall - all of which, we believe, give an idea of family life in a historic house.

Visited Chiddingstone Castle for afternoon tea which we thoroughly enjoyed. The staff were very friendly and polite plus the sandwiches, scones and cakes were delicious. It was made even more enjoyable with the lovely Autumn sunshine. A big thank you also to the Admin team who went out of their way to accommodate changes to my booking. Look forward to returning in the Spring.

We have had a lovely day exploring the castle and grounds. This was a virgin experience, gifted by my son, so included entry to the castle and a cream tea.
My experience with the people who work here was excellent, right from the telephone call I made to book my trip, where I was given all the information I needed, including a telephone call on the day of my trip to advise me of road works and how to avoid! When we arrived we were given an informative talk about the castle and contents of the different rooms by the lady who issued our tickets.
We had our cream tea in the court yard, it was lovely, light and fluffy scones, unlimited pots of tea for me and coffee for my husband, all served by a lovely lady.
Afterwards we went out and explored the walks.
Shame the Castle pub is closed.

Beautiful house and surroundings, we went for afternoon tea for 35 people! It was a pre-wedding family picnic. Booked the afternoon Tea in advance. Excellent service and hospitality. The whole team was so supportive and made the event memorable for everyone. Highly recommended. The walkaround the castle the stream/lake all make it a quiet and beautiful place to spend an afternoon. The most sumptuous afternoon tea one could go for.

We are very sorry that you were disappointed with your visit to Chiddingstone Castle. I am assuming you were visiting with a Virgin Experience Voucher. I believe there has been some confusion with regard to what your Virgin Experience voucher offers. I understand this was explained to you on the day. The voucher offers - quote - "traditional tea for two in a beautiful which to enjoy a cream tea (Chiddingstone Castle), or a full afternoon tea (Lumley castle)." The Virgin Experience Days website also describes the day as "Traditional Tea in a castle for two" (not afternoon tea) and goes on to say that this is a cream tea at Chiddingstone. The day does, however, include access to the castle itself, a beautiful historic building and all the collections of the eclectic antiques dealer, Denys Eyre Bower, and we are pleased that you were able to enjoy this. Rather surprised that you found our staff to be unfriendly, we rarely get negative comments in this regard, but apologies if you found this to be the case.

There was very little to see and do, especially for children. We sat for 20 minutes in the waitress-service tea room and no-one came to take our order so we left. Lots of people were waiting at tables - definitely not enough staff. A very limited menu too.

We are very concerned that you had to wait 20 minutes to be served in our tea room. This is most unusual, but I see that you came on a particularly busy day, when we were unfortunately a member of staff down who was unwell. I can only apologise that you weren't served on this occasion, its certainly not our usual standard. I assume when you say there is little to do - especially for children - that you are referring just to our grounds, and didn't visit the castle itself, where we do have several activities for children. Our grounds have 35 acres of lawns, lake and woodland and have been described as tranquil and peaceful, admittedly we don't have a Children's playground or suchlike.

The collections on display reflect a very personal interest by the previous owner. Eclectic contents, as personal collections often are, but some nice Japanese armour, art and fascinating articulated iron insects. There's also material relating to the Jacobites and ancient Egypt. When I visited there was a lecture day on Egypt in progress: I wish I'd known but I had a way to go so couldn't stop, although the programme looked great and shows there's more to this venue than a collection of "stuff". I also enjoyed finding out about Denys Bower and there seemed to be more rooms open than on my last visit some years ago, including upstairs where there's a splendid library.

The tea room and shop are pretty good and you can visit these free of charge and only a short walk from the village. Both reasonably priced and imaginative.

So glad we decided to ignore the negative comments about the castle. We had a lovely visit. The staff were all pleasant and helpful; with freshly made, tasty sandwiches and coffee in the tea room courtyard.
The varied collections of Japanese, Egyptian, Buddhist and Stuart & Jacobite artifacts are nicely displayed in Denys Bower's home. We particularly enjoyed the Japanese collection, especially the articulated ironwork animals.
All in all, an enjoyable day out.

The castle is stuffed with ancient artefacts from Japan and our own country. All have good info boards to clue you in. Some of the smaller Jacobite items are fascinating.

There are no formal gardens but the tearoom courtyard and the seats against the old garden wall as you exit the shop provide a lovely sun-trap to sit and relax.

Walk through the grounds to the old village with it's Elizabethan façade, shame the Pub was close when we went.

Worth a visit if you’re in the area.
