Lovely Hever Castle was the scene of a Torchlight Dinner in aid of the splendid charity Hospice in the Weald. Chilstone was present and donated a prize for the charity draw. The prize was a special VIP tour of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2012 with Champagne, a private meeting with top designer Tony Smith and an exclusive tour of a large garden and two tickets to the event! We are happy to say this splendid prize was snapped up and a large sum donated to this worthy charity. The evening was balmy and graced by the presence of Dame Kelly Holmes, Double Olympic Gold Medallist - as if you didn't know!
Hever Castle is a fairy tale castle (complete with moat and tudor village) close to our showgardens and the castle boasts a Chilstone balustrade and a Chilstone obelisk in the maze, although we do not often boast about it (much). The Castle is the one-time home of the Boleyn family and a great idea for a day out and you can drive around to our showgardens in about 20 mins through an area of outstanding natural beauty!
