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

Great house & grounds & loads to see & do. There are stags & deer wondering through the grounds, Jacobs sheep & plenty of great photo opportunities. Lots of history & a cute little shop selling plants in the carpark

Lovely Tudor Manor House, with lots to see, beautiful house and contents, lovely gardens. Outbuildings with carriage displays, old brewery, book shops, really interesting kitchen, where on certain days cooking takes place over a wood burner. Very interesting history, fantastic location by the river Avon, with brilliant parklands, ideal for a family day out/picnic and wildlife.

Took the grand children today as a beautiful day. We had been before but the walks around the grounds are good with close ups of the deer especially. The house was not for the children although the kitchen was interesting but I had trouble in persuading the pleasant 'chef' to let me try his cake without upsetting the gurus of... More

We spent a very happy couple of hours here and would have spent longer if we had not been kicked out at 4 pm! The house and park are very well kept. The house is by the river Avon and is in a beautiful setting. There is a lot to see. The carriage collection is particulary interesting. I did wonder... More

Having visited Charlecote before but mainly during summer, we decided one bright but cold afternoon to drive there again. The house was not very different from previous visits however it was good to look around without it being crowded. The grounds have been changed a little (for the better) by the small summerhouse. It's fairly local so it is a... More

A stunning property. The house is stunning but the kitchen, coach house, brewery and laundry are also very interesting.

Visited Charlecote Manor and grounds on a Monday morning, but it was still fairly busy but comfortable. The introductory and guided talks were excellent as were all the facilities and displays. The whole estate has a fascinating history. The garden centre was one of the best I have ever seen. It concentrates on plants and produce as opposed to furniture,... More

We visited on a slightly foggy weekday in March whilst on holiday in the area. The gardeners were hard at work keeping the gardens looking good. The grounds are home to a flock of Jacobs Sheep decended from the first of their kind brought to England. There was a good free introductory talk by a volunteer which gave an overview... More

We visited Charlecote Park recently, for lunch and look round the house and garden. We had a wonderful time looking round the largely Victorian house (still has Tudor chimneys, though. Part of the house is still occupied by members of the Lucy family, who have owned the estate for 700 years. The magnificent gardens were designed by Capability Brown. Near... More
