Owner description: 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.

If in the area this is a must to see. An attractive property in a lovely location by the River Avon, with deer in the grounds all take you back to times gone by.

We've been to Charlecote Park several times (as members of NT it's free) and always find something different about it depending upon the weather. The deer which roam the park add a certain something - know how the first Elizabethans felt, having venison on the hoof outside the door. The house is typical of old stately homes, doesn't appeal to me very much, but the park is glorious, especially in snow or autumn colours. Plenty of parking and there is a garden centre next to the carpark. Haven't used the restaurant so can't comment but there's also a hotel just down the road. There is a church virtually in the grounds (there's a fence round it which I seem to remember doesn't let you out again into the park) which is also worth a visit.

I highly recommend a visit to Charlecote Park. The house and grounds are absolutely beautiful, it was just a shame the weather was terrible. We have been before and picnic'd in the grounds and it was delightful.

This is a fantastic property and well worth a visit. If you are staying at the local hotel, Charlecote Pheasant, you can enjoy 2 for 1 admission and there are other vouchers available. House, grounds and outbuildings are all recommended.

This was our first visit to this National Trust property and we will definately re-visit in the future when next in the area. The house is stunning on the outside and the interior. The car park is by the visitor centre then you have to cross a road to get to the property. We spent about 2 hours in the mansion as there was such a lot to see and try to take in. You can take photo's without flash. The main hall that you enter first is large with a huge table with a lovely decorated top in the middle of the room. There is stained glass in some of the windows and plenty of art and ceramics to see. The dining room has an amazing ceiling and the biggest and wonderfully carved wood cupboard/sideboard that we have ever seen. It takes quite a while to see all the different animals, fish etc that are carved on this huge structure. The library is another large room with some of the Trust's most important books, the furnishings are beautiful especially the chairs and the cabinets. Most rooms have lovely decorated ceilings. The parterre was well laid out and the parkland was designed by 'Capability' Brown. There are a variety of walks around the deer park, woodland and the 2 rivers on the property. Plenty of seats around so you can have a break during the walk around. Walking along the River Dene you can see a lovely church in the distance that must be in Charlecotte village or near by. The Church of St Leonard on the property can be visited and is very well worth having a look in, you leave the church onto the main road and have to re-enter the property by the main gate. The Jacob sheep and the deer were plentiful in the park and not intimidated by people walking around. Highly recommend.
