Description: Charlecote Park has been home to the Lucy family since the 12th century...
Charlecote Park has been home to the Lucy family since the 12th century. 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.

We arrived early on Sunday and I am glad we did there is plenty of parking but it soon gets full. It opens at 10.30 but the house is not open until 12.00. We looked in some of the outbuildings and gardens first which are really good. The house is good there is plenty to see and you can take... More

The park surrounding the manor house is a lovely place to walk. The sheep are quite tame and it is easy to get close to them. You can get reasonably near to the deer also. There is a lake and the manor house has an attractive formal garden surrounding the house. The house is interesting and a volunteer dressed oin... More

We have visited Charlecote several times and always enjoy our visits. If your lucky enough to visit when the sun is shining there are plenty of walks to enjoy through the beautiful scenery. Sheep and deer roam freely much to the amusement of younger children and adults alike. There's the grand house to look around plus a couple of out... More

The park was large and very pleasant to stroll around. A river with a small waterfall and swans runs at the side of beautiful gardens,

Lovely house steeped in history. All original furnishing. My love of Tudor history especially Elizabeth 1 and her progresses made the house come alive. There is an asociation with Shakespeare who was in trouble for poaching. There are lots of walks you can take and the orangery serve some good grub. A good day out.

Recent reviews, range from excellent to poor, all written within the last month, some from National Trust members. How can a beautiful 16th century house in Capability Brown parkland not be good to see? Apparently it is a blot if part of the house is private, because the owners happen to live there (have done so for 900 years in... More

We attended a planned talk at the gatehouse with one of the volunteer guides giving us the history of the mansion house and the Lucy family.Inside we also attended a talk... More

We were staying at The Walton Hall so decided to have a look around this National Trust place on the way back to the hotel on the first sunny Spring afternoon of the year. We just paid for the park and gardens as we don't really enjoy the properties. Overall it was a lovely place to have a wander around... More
