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 have been to Charlecote a few times now and the open parkland with its magnificent deer herd never fails to impress. It's an easy through the grassland, with 4 miles of paths available. Once you've finished walking, you can treat yourself to a drink and a range of food at the tearoom, which is pleasant enough, but the staff... More

Great experience viewing the house and gardens, and the volunteers in each of the rooms was very knowledgable about the paintings and ojects. A real history lesson. The walks in the park were well marked and gave views back to the house. Well worth a visit.

We are both National Trust members and as such both parking and entry are free. There are extensive grounds to walk around, where as well as the river Avon and the house, there is a variety of wildlife to see including the resident deer population. The house itself has been maintained in a way that you get a real feel... More

Lovely Victorian building and home with reasonable sized gardens for this era and grounds for walking where you'll see deer and sheep - dodge the poop is in order or wear wellies! The house is deceptive as in not as big as it looks although not all of it is open to the public but has some pleasing art work.... More

Recently visited with family and had a lovely day out. The house and grounds are beautiful and there was an interesting treasure trail for children. The staff are friendly and informative. My mother in law and partner thoroughly enjoyed all the extra information the guides shared with us. The restaurant/cafe was really good and I can honestly say the chicken... More

We unfortunately visited this National Trust property on a rather rainy morning in the middle of summer so the walk from the car park to the house was rather wet!! The house is very interesting and the gardens beautiful, probably great on a sunny day. The café is rather small inside but has a good outdoor seating area if the... More

We visited Charlecote Park with our grandchildren & were lucky enough to be able to view all over the estate after climbing to the top of the gatehouse & listen to the clock bells chiming the time. Afterward we went to the restaurant for drinks that were all reasonably priced & sat on the lawn outside to have our picnic.... More

Easy to find and park, short walk to actual house. Lovely lawns to picnic on, blankets to sit on provided, good weather required though. Quaint tea room with good light bite selection. Lovely surroundings and garden, house very interesting both inside and out and very helpful volenteer guides. A fine segment of history worth checking out.
