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.

Our third visit here over the last few years, we love this place. Gorgeous house albeit you don't get to see very much due ti the fact that the former owners still live here, but still worth seeing.

I was staying with friends at the nearby hotel, so went for a walk, noticed the deer in the park so thought it would be somewhere to have a look at, walked back to the gate and tried to go through the entrance, but could not open, noticed very small notice saying if people wanted to visit the hall to...

A group of about 12 of us visited Charlecote all National trust members and have to say found it all very interesting. As the weather was not looking too promising we walked around the grounds first which were quite extensive and very pleasant The house itself was interesting and also the outbuildings which housed such things as the Laundry room,brewery...

Visited on our way home from Stratford Upon Avon , mainly because we had visited before and we remembered how friendly the National Trust had been. Unfortunately not very friendly this time! The view from the terrace is worth seeing and the entrance hall is spectacular but the rest of the house is nothing special as most of the furniture... More

A really good family day out, we took a picnic and had a blast. The grounds are big enough to walk around for a day and there is always something to see (deer, lake, bi-planes from airstrip next door, cows, flowers etc). There are boxes on the lawns full of games for kids to play ( footballs, tennis, cricket, frisbee).... More

A charming country house set in beautiful parkland. Smaller than a lot of National Trust properties but really interesting. Unfortunately we didn't have time to explore the parkland in great depth but we had a great visit. We had a delicious lunch in the restaurant which has both indoor and outdoor seating. A bonus was the privately owned garden centre... More

If you are a member of the national trust this place is well worth a visit. The house is smallish but well worth a walk round and the grounds and parkland make for a relaxing place to walk around.

A lovely visit last Sunday - but we almost didn't get to the house because we were so enraptured by the wonderful fruit and vegetables for sale near the ticket office/car park. After we'd filled a box to take home, we then had to look at the superb plants in the nursery, and only then did we make our way... More

I visited here on Saturday, and didn't have enough time see as much as I would have liked, but what I did see was very good value for money. The house was my favourite thing, especially the Ebony Bedroom, that was lovely, and I took so many photos in the kitchen, that was really interesting to me.. Its the perfect... More
