About
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.

Get the vegan curry pasty, it’s amazing!
Sep 2021 • Couples
Had a lovely day watching the deer under the trees - it’s amazing how close you can get. Be prepared for a walk to get the most out of the park. Not a huge choice of food, but the vegan cauliflower curry pasty was surprisingly delicious and the best value thing on the menu! Would return just for that!

Disappointed experience
Sep 2021 • Couples
We came full of good intentions but they were dashed when told the house wasn't open. All we could do was walk the grounds without seeing any deer. There was a limited selection of cakes. Ring before you come I would advise

Pleasant NT property with pretty river and deer herd
Sep 2021
This is a pleasant National Trust property with grounds set around a pretty river. The house is interesting from the outside. We visited too late to go inside, although some of the outbuildings (laundry, carriage houses) were open and these were well presented with just the right amount of information. Presuming the rest of the house is similar it would be worth a visit. The gardens were fairly bare and uninspiring, however this appeared to be due to a short term staffing issue after Covid so may not be representative of normal times. It was still a lovely place to make a short visit and I can imagine for families living locally it must be an ideal place to take children on a dry afternoon. There's also a herd of deer (fallow I think or roe) with impressive antlers (at this time of year anyway) which were nice to photograph. Plus the usual National Trust amenities (shop, toilets, tearoom).

Well, we thought it was brilliant.
Sep 2021
Having read recent rather negative reviews I felt it only fair that I leave a review after my visit today. We LOVED everything about Charlecote Park. We went to the house first, and although there are only a few rooms open they are all spectacular - absolutely full of interesting objects and decoration. We found the staff to be very friendly and knowledgeable. The gentleman in the first room clearly loves what he does - I could have stayed and listed to him for ages. Similarly, the lady in the room with the harp. Thank you so much for all of the information on the table top and the potty cupboard! Very interesting. I don't know if they are volunteers, but they certainly make visits like this well worth the long drive to get to them and they are a credit to the NT.

We were very lucky with the weather and the park was lovely. The deer were beautiful and were kind enough to come quite close to use and 'pose' for photos. We spent a very enjoyable 3 hours here today.

We ate in the courtyard - the sandwiches and cake were all fresh and very tasty.

Not at its best this time
Sep 2021 • Family
Took our grandchildren today. Overall disappointing, massive garden machinery noise from every direction and the whole place looking tired and weary.
Wood yard cafe OK but slow.
AND, this unnecessarily annoying, TOTALLY INADEQUATE SIGNPOSTING FOR TOILETS.
What a shame, used to be a brilliant visit; desperately needs to raise its game.

Nice place to go
Aug 2021 • Family
It's a nice walk, plenty of deer in the park, dogs on leads welcome on most of the site.

The cafe was OK, not really a lot of choice.

Toilet facilities are good and clean.

Feels like National Trust have cut back a lot since covid, not as much to do on site as before, but still a decent hour or so walking around a nice area

Outstanding National Trust property.....well worth a visit.........
Aug 2021
Spent a good few hours visiting this lovely Victorian property with extensive well maintained gardens and grounds.
The house was open on the day we visited and there were plenty of volunteers available to answer any questions.
There were other outbuildings to visit, including the kitchen, laundry rooms and even horse drawn carriages.
Onsite cafe with plenty of picnic areas. Good facilities.
We had a long walk around the deer park which was very pleasant and enjoyable.
Would definitely recommend a visit.

A walk around Charlecote Park
Aug 2021 • Couples
A real bonus as this was next to the hotel we were staying in. As we’re NT members get in for nothing. The house wasn’t open so we walked down by the river & around the gardens.

Lovely property but lacking information
Aug 2021
Beautiful gardens and parkland, and we had good sightings of the deer herd. The house wasn't at its best, due to the ongoing conservation work, but what we did see was lovely. I agree with other recent reviewers that there should have been more information about the history of the house and the family that has lived there for generations - I learned more about the servants than the owners. It was interesting to hear about the conservation work, though.
