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

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this lovely house. The beautiful day helped no doubt but the house and grounds looked lovely . Much of interest to see and knowledgeable guides in each room. It became busy but we were there early and when we were ready for a drink we simply walked in the grounds until the restaurant became less... More

We visited on a very warm sunny day, which, of course, makes everything better!! We are NT members, so entrance costs us nothing. The house is huge, but not very many rooms are open to the public. However, those that are, are simply delightful. No audio guide, which is a shame, but guides in each room to give greater detail.... More

Delightful place to visit, house is very impressive, set in lovely countryside. Guides very pleasant and helpful, a really nice day out. If you are visiting here on a Saturday, you might want to take in Chedhams Yard a couple of miles down the road as well.

This house is full of wonderful masterpieces of furniture and décor and art. The guides are very helpful and informative. It has been altered during its long life but still maintains the look of a Tudor Manor. Extensive grounds and gardens made for walking and exploring. Well worth a visit.

We didnt choose to do a guided tour but still managed to spot a fawn and the jacob sheep are really quite cute. We had coffee and cake in the orangery which (as... More

A very good house with an extensive and fascinating history and a good tea room. A lot to see and do - a good place for families and couples - the deer herd were very close to the house and unconcerned by nearby visitors - almost posing for photos!!. As always, the NT room supervisors were excellent and very knowledgeable.... More

Charlecote Park is located in lovely grounds with the River Avon in the distance. The house has been remodeled over the years and is now a combination of Tudor and Victorian architecture. Each of the major rooms were staffed by an individual guide who was very knowledgeable about all the pieces in that room and was able to explain the... More

As National Trust members we've visited Charlecote many times. Have seen the house (great interior) in the past so this visit (house closed on Wednesdays) we planned to spend the day around the gardens and open parkland. Wonderful walk along the river, teeming with all kinds of butterflies, dragonflies etc. Lovely as always to see the deer, especially the glimpse... More
