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 enjoyed our visit to Charlecote while we were visiting the area. The house was interesting and the guides were friendly,sharing their extensive knowledge of the property. The outbuildings also offered insights into the house's past. There is lovely parkland and the grounds are worth exploring. The cafe is on the small side and the range a little limited but... More

Although I have lived less than 10 miles from Charlecote Park all my life I had never visited until now. We have missed out! On entry to the park there was a mixed herd of deer which you could approach to about 10 metres away. The house is interesting, lovely looking, not large and brought to life by the knowledgable...

I don't usually review National Trust properties ( think I will from now on though!), however the disappointing restaurant decided me. Also bearing in mind we went on a very busy Bank Holiday Monday. The House itself is lovely - although you are only allowed into around 8 rooms of this massive property , probably because the owners still have... More

A lovely place to visit for young and old alike. The house is well worth a visit as were the coach house, brewery and laundry. Boxes of toys, kites etc were positioned around the grounds for those who wanted to use them and the area was big enough to give the feeling of space despite there being big crowds.

I had a lovely visit to charlecote park. The Tudor house looks very impressive from the outside and is also very interesting inside. I liked the dining room set up ready for a big dinner. The grounds outside are lovely for a walk and a picnic. I especially loved seeing the deer. You can walk up really close to them.... More

Charlecote Park is a lovely place to visit , wonderful parkland and gardens and the house is also very good.Do not miss the Elizabethan costume talk in the Great Hall , Christina Horne gives an outstanding talk and adds a little humour as she goes along,one not to miss.

We enjoyed our visit. Plenty of park to walk around and we took the opportunity for a short guided walk of a part of it. The guide was very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly and we enjoyed the experience. We did a quick tour of the house which was interesting too. The plants for sale in the garden centre are some...
