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. « less

Beautiful old house with a small formal garden area and deer park. Still part occupied by the owners so not all the house is open to the public but still some interesting rooms. It is quite a walk from the car park to the house entrance though I believe there is a vehicle that takes those that are mobility impaired... More

Charlecote Park has much to offer the discerning NT member. Entry is over the road via the typical NT ticketing building, you get a little sticker rather than a ticket and off you go down the long gravel drive towards the house (there is transport for those not up to the walk). The house has much to offer and is... More

Approach by the long drive, gardens on either side of house, see the work in progress in the house, speak to the guides and see the various carriages, wagons and the brew house. Really loved this place.

What a stately and beautiful house set in lovely deer park. Such an immense collection of paintings and artefacts. Magnificent ceilings and glorious stone topped tables. The gardens were a delight in their autumn colours. So much to see inside that your eyes can't take it all in. Transport available from the gate to the house for the less infirm.

We popped in here on our way home from Derby - I was a little disappointed as the house was not very big but we did enjoy our visit here - we managed to view the house and gardens in about an hour and then left. It would have been nice to have seen more of the house but what... More

My wife and I visited with our 3 year old son and my parents, all members of the National Trust. The car park is on the opposite side of a fairly busy road to the house and park. There is a small garden nursery next to the car park and they had hundreds of squashes & pumpkins when we visited,... More

We enjoyed the house and the guides were very helpful. The stables, kitchen and brew house are being developed as better attractions. What we liked was the way the grounds around the house were being used by children and families with miniature tennis, bowls, skittles and just picnics. For the more athletic there are walks of a suitable length and... More

We visited the house as part of our national trust membership, we were impressed with the house with all it had to offer including carriage house with many different carriages and a separate kitchen where the fire was lit (it smelt lovely) and lovely gardens to walk around with deers. We also found a little area where pigs were kept... More

We visited this place on a warm September day with my wife. We were on need of a good walk, and that we got round the lovely meadows and land where wild dear roam. Amazing to watch. Be warned some of these areas can be closed for wildlife reasons. Also be warned very easy to miss the entrance to the... More
