Attraction details
Type: Parks, Outdoors
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.

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.

Don't get me wring, this is an amazingly beautiful park with a big impressive house but having visited especially to see the house ready for Christmas we were very disappointed. Unlike other National Trust properties locally, very little effort seems to have been made and the room guides seemed to be unwilling to engage with visitors. Little decorated outside and... More

Thank you for your review of Christmas time at Charlecote. We're sorry to hear that it did not meet your expectations. Our aim this year has been to recreate a traditional Victorian Christmas. The house and outbuildings have been decorated to reflect the way that Charlecote would have looked and felt around 150 years ago by bringing out the true... More

My Husband and I visited Charlecote whilst travelling home from a trip to Birmingham. We chose Charlecote as I love Tudor houses. On arriving you walk down the original driveway that Elizabeth I traveled when she visited the house way back in the late 1500's. As you walk down you approach the original gatehouse that has stood since the Tudor... More

We love visiting NT properties normally. But my husband has to use a wheelchair at the present time. So yes it is a beautiful house with lovely grounds ...but try pushing a wheelchair round in the gravel and pebbles on some of the paths! It's a nightmare. There is apparently a car park for disabled near the house but not... More

Lovely park, disabled parking on request in the grounds. Most areas accessible. Events through the day, we saw costumes and an explanation of who and how they were worn. Deers from a distance, but once when we went there was a herd of them right by the restaurant it was magnificent, also I have seen Morris Dancing in the beautiful... More

A beautiful house in beautiful grounds this place will draw us back. Well thought out for visitors with lots of interesting information as you wandered around the house, stables, pantries and grounds. Lovely cafe next to a very unusual summerhouse. Nice to see a stall outside selling coffee and icecreams too for those not wanting to queue for meals.  Very... More
