I think people writing poor reviews about Chastleton House should have researched in advance what they were going to. It isn't difficult to find out that there is no cafe on site, nor that the car park is some distance from the House and up...More

This is not your normal National Trust house and garden - and that is exactly what makes it an amazing place to visit! They have chosen to leave the house in the exact condition in which it was last lived in during the 1900's. That...More

For us this was a complete waste of time. Collection of rooms with no real interest or atmosphere. The car park was really small and a walk from the house, there were plenty of staff trying to be helpful but this really didn’t help.

Visistec this place today and it was magical. A perfectly preserved snapshot of Jacobean country life. A real gem and as real an experience of history you will ever encounter. So unexpected and a must for anyone visiting the Cotswolds.

This National Trust property has been preserved 'as it was' due to historical poverty. The house is, as it was, including some areas which reflect its historical state. Thus it has a sense of being genuine and lived in, lacking in many National Trust properties....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
