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.

As grandparents we took two of our families, including children aged 4 months, 2, 8, and 10 years, to the 'family picnic area on 20th. July. It's a lovely setting, and there were good outdoor games to play with. But we found the excessive amount of animal excrement [it looked like both sheep and deer] spoilt it. When a shower... More

Parking: On the opposite side of the road from the house. Pay your entrance fee here. Also extensive plant centre adjacent to car park including roses from the likes of David Austin. House: A Victorian structure built around a Tudor house, but less oppressive than most with lighter touches and good use of natural light. Nineteenth century interiors, mostly brought... More

NT really have got their act together on making places so much more family-friendly without alienating those without kids or on their own. This place again tries to encourage folk to participate, good news. The grounds are great, car parking just adequate (in the overflow car park), facilities OK. The house itself is interesting, depending on how you like such... More

We purposely devised a route home from Norfolk after a visit there to take in Charlecote having seen it on TV some months ago. We stopped over locally and arrived at opening time on a lovely sunny day. Very interesting house with much of the contents seemingly purchased from Fonthill Abbey owned by William Beckford whose "Tower" is about a... More

Charlecote Park is an impressive and very attractive building on the banks of the river Avon. The approach to the house from the car park shows it at its best (as was intended). Inside there is a wealth of treasures - old and beautiful paintings furniture and other objects. As with most NT properties there are plenty of leaflets explaining... More

Not the best NT property I have visited, it is interesting but looks in need of some internal maintenance. Fair walk from car park to house so take buggy if you have mobility problems. Orangery restaurant is good, I had venison burger, but is small and there are no other places to eat, so avoid busy times. Good picnic areas... More

This house is not just a house steeped in history, it is a lovely home with a homely welcome feeling about it. We did the tour of the house after listening to one of the guides talking about the estate. We went to the Tearoom afterwards for a Cream Tea and the scones were divine. We walked around the grounds... More

Charlecote is a really nice village with the great Park. Deer are amazing and the stream is flowing sweetly. Great place to spend a Sunday afternoon. Slightly too dear.
