What a wonderful place to visit! Lots of interesting detail about Winston Spencer Churchill, the war and a fund of stories from the volunteers who cheerfully helped in each and every room. The house is so well kept and looked lived in and so comfortable...More

Well worth a visit to this beautiful country house. Even if your not a Churchill fan it's worth the time to visit . Dogs can go too . Food is very good . Staff very helpful. Views alone make it worth the trip

A great day out. Really enjoyed visiting here. £15 entry. Run by the National Trust. Mostly you are making your own way around the house and gardens so don't expect an informative tour guide. There are volunteers in most rooms who a knowledgeable but hard...More

My interest in WW2 brought me to Churchill's ancestral home which from the outside was initially not particularly imposing although sitting in very impressive and extensive grounds which are still kept in immaculate condition by a team of hardworking volunteers. However once inside my interest...More

Visited this enchanting National Trust property. Very well maintained with stunning grounds and very interesting history. The house was probably one of the best we have visited and I'd thoroughly recommend a visit. The kitchen garden was lovely too.

Visiting the house gives you a bit of a different perspective of Winston Churchill. The house is well kept and the grounds are beautiful with the kitchen garden, fish ponds and a beautiful landscape. You can walk through the house and garden in one hour...More

We have seen several TV shows about Churchill and his life at Chartwell, so it was nice to see it first hand. I doubt whether this house would merit the attention it gets if it weren't for Churchill, but it is an important historical artifact...More

An interesting visit simply because it was Churchill's house and contains plenty of relevant memorabilia. The house itself, despite parts of it being Tudor, is not very inspiring architecturally. It has extensive gardens and grounds to look round.

The website does not say. However for NT membership - under 5's are free, child membership is between 5 and 13 and they have a young person's category of 13-25. So I guess to be consistent, the child age limit for tickets... More

You should allow around 3+ hours. There can be a waiting time for access to the house - you find out your house entrance time at the ticket office when entering the gardens - could be 1+ hours and you must see the house... More
