Overview

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.

Stunning views over the Avon peppered with deer. House and grounds fascinating and resplendent. Loved Sally our guide, a veritable source of historic nuggets. A feminist. A woman after my own heart. Strongly recommend a look at the table. Some pretty extraordinary chairs too.

We visited here while staying nearby in Harbury. Lovely place to visit. 2 of us went into the house while 2 of us walked the grounds with our dogs. The house like many of the national trust houses has its own unique history. I really...More

This is a beautiful house and grounds with a really interesting history. Apparently William Shakespeare was caught trying to hunt deer in the park. They have deer on site still today which is great to see. I would definitely recommend people visit this place.

Been a few times when passing this way. The house is lovely and very interesting. Grounds are extensive and well kept. Good for long walks. Excellent tea rooms and nice second hand book shop. Downsides - gardens are only small and were actually empty when...More

Visited the NT Charlecote Park last Sunday, and have to say we were very impressed. Beautiful House (timed entry), but a little disappointing in that there are not very many rooms which you are able to look around. Magnificent Estate and Grounds. Very large Car...More

Visited over the Easter weekend. Most of Charlecote was flooded. It did, however give you a good look at the Deer in the Park.

As its National Trust you have to pay an entrance fee to visit. It is less than visiting the house as well.
