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 visited this NT property on a sunny spring day. There were lambs in the fields and we were also advised that the deer were shedding their antlers. The Orangery provided home made soup and hot meals as well as the obligatory coffee and cake etc. There was also a super fresh fruit and vegetable shop alongside a superb collection... More

My husband and I visited here for the first time yesterday and will probably return at some point in the future. The staff were all helpful and friendly and there is lots to see and do at Charlecote Park. The car park is about 300 yards across quite a busy road from the entrance to the grounds so be careful...

Visited with children aged nine as part of a weekend break in the area. An interesting house with a trail of sheep for the children to spot, also a quiz for them to find easy information relating to the rooms, which allows parents a bit more of a chance to have a look round. There are not as many rooms... More

My boyfriend and I had a lovely day out, the staff are knowledgable, the house is very interesting, there are beautiful deer roaming the park. A half day would probably suffice here unless you want to roam, there are plenty of country walks. In particular, I loved the parterre garden.

Visited Charlecote Park after the disappointment of Warwick Castle. Wonderful walk from the car park through a Deer park. The house is everything you could want to see. The guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. Excellent National Trust property.

The grounds here are very nice, endless walks with two rivers and a lake to explore. There is a herd of deer in the grounds as well as sheep and pigs. The food in the orangey is very nice. The lawns at the back of the house make a great area for the children to play. There are some very... More

Nice place to visit and excellent chances to take photographs of deer. I managed to get within about 10 meters of them without any difficulties and properly could have managed to get even closer. Inside space at the restaurant is a bit limited but if the weather is ok there is a lot of tables outside.

We visited Charlecote Park on the Tuesday after Easter. The weather was glorious, after a misty start, and families with young children played in and explored the parkland. The House is full of interesting features, with very knowledgeable staff to bring the artefacts to life. Visitors (especially children) are encouraged to help with cookery activities in the Kitchen. I'm not... More
