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.

Spent a very pleasant couple of hours looking around this grand old house. The National Trust volunteers are the best I have ever come across - they go out of their way to greet you and to tell you all about the Lucy family and the fascinating artefacts. Well worth a visit if you are in the area

Visted Charlecote Park on Sunday with the family. Beautiful house with a interesting history, for us though this place was all about the grounds, truly beautiful walks and the fact that your wandering around so close to the herds of deers is amazing. Fully working Victorian kitchen - alas it was being deep cleaned when we visited, but an excuse... More

I did not have time to visit the house although from the guide book it appears to be fascinating = the gardens and grounds including a deer park are quite extensive and very pleasant to walk around - there is also a church that can be visited. The attraction seems very popular and I anticipate that on certain days the... More

The fallow deer will be rutting in the next few weeks and in the build up to this the males are eating all they can to bulk up for the fighting. This means they are static for much of the time which provides good photographic opportunities. The house and grounds are well worth a visit but part of the grounds... More

We stopped off at Charlecote Park en route to the Cotswolds for the weekend. We visited the house which was extremely interesting with informative volunteers in all the rooms. The grounds and parklands were beautiful with lots of deer roaming around. We had a lovely cream tea in the cafe.

Planned as just a cafe stop on our travels we were pleased to have looked around the house, gardens and various other areas when we were there. Pleasant staff and volunteers throughout. Cafe better than many NT cafes!

Interesting House, Service Wing and Gardens on the banks of the river Avon. We were lucky that the gatehouse was open and you could go to the top and view the house and grounds from there. The house has helpful guides in each room and the Great Hall is particularly impressive.

This is an intriguing National Trust property set in beautiful grounds and deer park. There are many beautiful objet d'art, furniture etc. on display, we were particularly interested to discover that many of these items of furniture, etc. had been purchased by The Lucys of Charlcote, from the auction sale of the doomed Fonthill Abbey. We had recently holidayed at... More

Beautiful house, lovely long walk upto the stunning house, gives you chance to take it all in. The main hall ceiling is breathtaking. I was stunned but how close we could get to the dear. Lovely walk on a public footpath, it would be nice to know the history of the grounds beyond the river as there where lots of... More
