Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

As a National Trust member, the admission price is not an issue. However, if I were a casual visitor and had to pay the £7.50 entry fee I would be a little disappointed with limited number of rooms to view in the main house. However, what rooms that are available are decorated and furnished with some tremendous items! Unusually, the... More

We decided to go here as it was not too far from where we were staying and the pictures on the National Trust website looked lovely. Unfortunately we picked a very cold day so didn't spend much time here, however it is somewhere we would return if in the area. We would also make sure the house was open as... More

Took the boys here for a day out. The scenery is excellent. We went deer spotting which isn't hard and were lucky enough to find a small antler. The grounds are spacious and good for exploring, the hall was closed when we visited but some of the outhouses were still open and the walks are superb. Great for a few... More

Wonderful grounds , lovely house with huge Xmas tree. We visit here very often. But our one gripe is the restaurant is not big enough for the amount of people that go through charlecote. Baddesley is way better.

As members, we called in at Charlecote to soak up the festive atmosphere. The staff were very welcoming and as we approached the house, the Salvation army were playing carols. There were a lot of people enjoying the grounds in a variety of Christmas jumpers, which added to the ambiance. It has to be said that most of the house... More

We arrived here late afternoon so just had time to enjoy the park and ground floor of the house before it closed for the day. There was enough time though I did feel that certain staff were already packing up and ready to be off as soon as possible, when it wasn't actually the ends of visiting. The Christmas feel... More

I don't really know why this place was built here? The location is flat and the passing river was not made a feature to be enjoyed. Its now a National Trust place who, being 'loaded' seem to throw money at the place. The entrance location is on the other side of a main road where over priced plants may be... More

I know that there are quite a lot of NT properties that are a good walk from the car park but others are more interesting when you get there.Charlecote Park is a beautiful park setting seeing the deer roaming in the grounds but the house and gardens are not as good as others in the area.Maybe try Upton House.
