National Trust site. Chartwell was the family home of Sir Winston Churchill from 1924 until his death. It was the spectacular view over The Weald and the South Downs that Churchill loved about the house. At Chartwell Churchill not only painted and wrote but also created garden walls, rockeries and waterworks, and even built a large swimming pool. Today Chartwell is left as was in Sir Winston and Lady Churchill's life time with fresh flowers from the garden, daily papers, his famous cigars and the visitors' book showing the celebrated people who came to Chartwell.
