Description:

Charlecote Park has been home to the Lucy family since the 12th century....

Charlecote Park has been home to the Lucy family since the 12th century. Their stories are told throughout the house by their portraits, the objects they collected from around the world and the design influence they had on the house and parkland. See how Mary Elizabeth Lucy remodeled the house in Victorian times. The gardens include a formal parterre, woodland walk and the wider parkland (inspired by 'Capability' Brown), which offer walks with picturesque views across the River Avon. A herd of fallow deer has been in the park since Tudor times.

Interesting house & lovely grounds

Spend an hour exploring the interesting house & then take a stroll around the grounds. You can take a longer walk around the deer park if you're feeling more energetic.

Lots of variety here. Lovely deer park with great views for a stroll. Reasonable cafe in the grounds. The kitchens are accessed from a side entrance (easily missed) but really fun, with practical tasks for the kids. Only the downstairs of the house was open, so there wasn't too much to see. Worth another visit.

My wife and two of our friends stayed in a Hotel opposite to this beautiful and very old Park and large House set in its own grounds, it is very beautiful and has a lovely large herd of deer wandering about in its grounds.

OK, it was a cold winter's day but we were lucky enough to join one of the guided tours of the out buildings (the House was closed) which was absolutely fascinating. Well presented and full of interesting facts and information. It's a nice pleasant walk from the car park, passing several deer herds on the way. We'll be looking forward... More

The grounds make this site,excellent walks with the river, deer herds and a heronry all within a couple of miles. Different times of the year give amazing photographic opportunities especially with an early start to avoid the crowds. The orangery has limited fayre and is usually busy, in the summer outside catering is also available. The house is well worth... More

We've visited three times for the walks which are great, once for the hall which is interesting but not the National Trusts best. The cafe is so crowded and very expensive and ruins the peaceful feeling built up by the walks.

Great chance to look around a genuine Elizabethan House. Lots to see and do for all the family and you can enjoy afternoon tea in the Orangery situated in the extensive grounds. Look out for the wild deer or wander down to the river. Great selection of secondhand books available

The house was closed for the winter but the grounds and out buildings were open. We joined a tour of the outbuildings seeing the old carriages and the tack room, it was very interesting and the guide entertaining. It was lovely being so close to the fallow deer too. Quite an experience!

We were in Warwickshire for an evening theatre performance at Stratford-upon-Avon and decided to visit Charlecote during the day. We'd got this idea after visiting for an earlier production, as the estate was used as the inspiration for sets in two of the RSC's 2015 season shows. This aroused our curiosity and put it on our list of places to... More

We have been to Charlecote on previous occasions, this time we went for the Christmas event. The weather was favourable so we took a walk around the grounds and gardens before visiting the house. Even in the winter the views are superb, along with the many deer wandering around the grounds and not taking much notice of the visitors. The... More
