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.

plenty of room for everyone- picnics, walks, all sorts of games. The National Trust has really reinvented itself encouraging families and children, allowing photogrpahy etc. Very aware now too of people with mobility issues. Very interesting talk about Tudor costume. This is the place where Shakespeare is SUPPOSED to have poached a deer.

We visited Charlecote Park & House which is a NT property. The house was of great interest as were the outhouses with an old kitchen and a brewery. The gardens were pleasant to walk around.

Incredible parkland with deer roaming, beautiful vistas. Real efforts to develop the attraction with many families with young children using the toys & games available in the spacious grounds. The outhouses & service quarters have been opened up & well presented. I'd love to give 5 stars but the beautiful house was a disappointment in that few rooms are open... More

Charlecote is a lovely National Trust house to visit. They have lots of garden plants, flowers and herbs to buy by reception, the grounds are picturesque (green fields, deer etc.) with options for picnics and games, and the house itself is fantastic. The only disappointment is that, as the house is still in use, only some of the house is... More

This National Trust establishment near Warwick is certainly well with a visit. The House and outbuildings are steeped in history. The grounds on the Avon are nice for strolling about and the deer roaming free add to the attraction.

The house is beautiful, with amazing examples of antique furniture, portraits, carved wooden furniture and balustrades. and I can strongly recommend a visit. The friendly staff are on hand to answer all your questions in the herb garden, which is full of fragrant herbs and old world plants. But if you are thinking of eating in the restaurant, think again!... More

A beautiful place in a magnificent landscape of almost endless parkland. However, much more is needed in the way of informing visitors on the history of the building. Most NT properties I have visited recently have a timeline display, detailing the history of the property and the family or families who have lived there. No such display is offered at... More

This is a beautiful house and grounds which we visited on a beautiful June Sunday. The house is open for visits to about 8 rooms but they are all very interesting and brilliant representations of the house as it must have been. Exquisite vista up the drive towards the house. There is a Victorian laundry and brewhouse and a carriage... More
