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

This is the most wonderful of country houses, that makes you want to stay there for ever. Very helpful staff, gorgeous gardens and a wonderful orangery for that mid afternoon cup of tea.

Free parking for all. Orangery restaurant lovely setting (due a revamp inside Nov 2014). House easy to navigate and plenty of knowledgeable volunteers. Carriages very interesting-a very informative volunteer guided us around them including into the locked tack room. Be sure to read about the Lucy's Grand Tour. The biggest 'garden centre' I've seen at a national trust- so much... More

We stopped by on a cold, wet Autumn day shortly after opening time so we had no problems parking. Coming out of the shop we were confronted by the best display of pumpkins and gourds I've ever seen. We declined the offer of a buggy ride and walked up the long drive to the gatehouse where a group of us... More

Some very good walks and gardens on the outside. The House very interesting lots of local history. Very good Tea room about to undergo a refurbishment too and better than... More

This house is magnificent inside with plenty to see. There are only about nine or so rooms open to the public but they are outstanding. The grounds are lovely, and there is an excellent exhibition of carriages and coaches. A downside is the Orangery Café. It is very small and poorly designed, probably partly due to the shape of the... More

As a National Trust member and a great fan of how they've improved over the past few years I was left a little let down with what was on offer here. The level access seems good but is covered with a form of gravel I've not come across before which was hard to walk across. To be fair the NT... More

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
