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.

A member of Work in Progress visited Charlecote Park, a National Trust property, on Thursday 27th April to experience the venue as a young person. Charlecote Park offers a 16th Century country mansion and grounds to explore with parklands that are home to herds of fallow deer and Jacob's sheep.

Here are a few points about what we enjoyed and what we would love to see next time.
• Introductory video was excellent, giving a witty and insightful overview of the site
• Being able to go up onto the roof of the Gatehouse was an exciting privilege
• Orangery tea room was good – nice big portions!
• Lovely gardens and grounds
• Getting up close to the herds of fallow deer was amazing! We even found some antlers!
• Exploring the grand house was fantastic!
• There was a volunteer in every room and each one was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, answering all our questions
• Working Victorian kitchen on the site and there were some samples available – Welsh cakes, yum!

Visiting Charlecote Park was one of the best days out that we've had with the National Trust. There is so much stuff to do that you can easily fill up an entire day exploring the amazing house and stunning parkland. Getting up close to the deer was just incredible. The staff and volunteers as really added to the fantastic experience with their knowledge and enthusiasm for the site. We will definitely be going back to finish our explorations of the parkland and gardens, as well as the carriage house which we accidentally missed out. I would definitely recommend this site to everyone as there is something there for everyone to enjoy.

Fantastic National Trust location with the usual well kept facilities, historic education and involved displays with great interactive opportunities for the whole family.

Great for children to explore, lacking in formal play area though.

Recommended.

This was our first visit to Charlecote Park. we all had a brilliant day walking round the grounds and watched a herd of Deer running across the paths, saw the flock of Jacob sheep with their lambs. There are well laid out pathways to follow round the grounds and you can take a dog with you for the grounds. Food available from two small outlets, one near the orangery serves hot food and has seating inside as well as outside (around the back is seating under large heaters.

The house is full of wonderful antiques with a good stock supply of old masters and a wonderful library. Information is available on each room. There are several areas to explore and the staff are very helpful and informative.

The park area has lots of seating for picnics near the River Avon. All in all it is a grand place to visit and doesn't disappoint.

Car parking is not far away and its just a short walk to the house.
