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

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

Be warned some of these areas can be closed for wildlife reasons. Also be warned very easy to miss the entrance to the... More

The first view of this house walking up the drive is quite stunning. We were very lucky as the gate house was open and you could go inside and go up to the roof where you got a brilliant view of the house, the exhibit in there was very interesting and informative. When you entered the house you felt that... More

Read lots of reviews and agree with most of them - lovely place to visit. the volunteers in the house were helpful and gain some knowledge about the place. The gardens were a little past their best but still had a nice show of colour. We had lovely weather and walked along the river and into the deer park -... More

Sadly the house was closed when we visited so we only saw the gardens. One of our group was in a wheelchair and access was easy in most areas. The gardens were still looking fantastic but best of all is the view. Not to be missed

Went to Charlecote park with my two kids 4 and 2. National Trust properties are usually pretty good as a day out for the kids but Charlcote just didn't seem to hit the mark. the house was closed on the day we went. The grounds for exploring appeared limited, however there was plenty of deer to look at and the... More

We arrived at this National Trust property and decided to do a grounds tour before entering the house. There were only 4 visitors in total with our guide and he gave a fantastic and very informed hour long walk through the wide parklands in search of the deer. We not only found them but were able to walk within 10... More
