Chartwell is only a 15 minute drive from Springwood and is a beautiful National Trust property that remains much the same as when the great man lived there with his family.
The house is adorned with pictures, books and personal mementoes commemorating the career and wide-ranging interests of Churchill, as a politician, writer and dedicated family man.
The hillside gardens of Chartwell are a living memory of Sir Winston’s love of landscape and nature. You can wander around the lakes he created, the kitchen garden that provided for his family and the Marycot, a playhouse designed for his youngest daughter Mary – you really can walk in his footsteps.
Beyond the gardens there is a beautiful woodland area with looped trails, providing the perfect opportunity to stretch your legs.
There is currently an extended exhibition marking the 50th anniversary of the death of Sir Winston Churchill, paying tribute to his passing, the funeral and his enduring legacy that still stands today and will do for future generations.
There is of course, also a scrumptious café providing with the perfect pit stop. The Landemare Café is named after Georgina Landemare who was the Chartwell cook for over 20 years. The café offers both hot and cold foods, sweet and savoury. All produce is locally sourced and cooked fresh daily.
