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.

Where to start ! ... This is a beautiful place to spend the day . The house is fantastic ..A step back in history and displayed so well .The stained glass panels depicting the family heralds are definitely worth a visit .
Then there are the grounds ...wow !! With deer roaming beautiful views and a river running through it all its definitely a perfect place for a picnic or go for a walk through the stunning buttercup meadow .
Will definitely be going back !

Found the house very interesting. I particularly liked the Raeburn portraits and the wonderful Library. Very interesting talk on Tudor costume which was very informative. All the Room Guides were very helpful, willingly giving me information about the paintings when there were no laminated guides in the room. Great lunch as usual!

Absolutely brilliant visit, the volunteers were extremely helpful and very knowledgeable. the house had plenty of interesting objects to admire. Then the gardens with superb views of the river Avon and the distant horizon of the village and church.

It is a National Trust property so if in the area this has to be one of the must see properties. Very beautiful walks and the staff were superb!!

We visited this as NT members, mainly to walk around the gardens and extensive grounds. The house sits in beautiful countryside and there are paths around the lovely meadows, with views of deer in the distance. While we didn't visit the house, the grounds easily occupied a couple of hours, though we did feel there were in need of some TLC here and there (after a very wet winter - so to be expected).
