I visited Charlecote Park today with a friend. We drove 50 mintues to get here and I must say we were both very disappointed. It doesn't make it clear on the National Trust website that the house is currently being put back to normal after some rewiring work. When we arrived, we found that the prices had been reduced to £6.50 (without gift aid). When we visited the house, there were only a handful of rooms to see (all of the items in a few of the smaller rooms were covered with dust sheets). There is a small garden area, cafe, brewery, carriage store, kitchen and gift shop to see apart from the house. A more appropriate admission fee for this would have been £5 maximum as it took us only about 45 minutes to slowly make our way around the property.
I have noticed from a comment below that all the rooms in the house were open to us today - I would not have been happy if I had visited after the rewiring and had to pay full price! There are no information cards in each room of the house to give you a history of the place, although their are a few bits of info on the paintings there.
Coughton Court national trust property is nearby and in my opinion a much better experience (for the same price). National trust - please make it clear when there is work being done to a property via your website.
