Charlecote Park has been home to the Lucy family since the 12th century....

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.

Interesting to visit but a bit too "roped off" for our liking. As ever, the National Trust guides were trememendously knowledgable and helpful. Seeing the deer was fantastic and the carriages and horse info guide was especially fascinating.

Visited on a rather mild day. The deer were just roaming around and are just lovely creatures. Lovely place well worth a visit not really a whole day thing! The food in the cafe was really nice if not a tad expensive for the hot food. Ideal for children x

It was about 8 years since we last came here. On a glorious Sunday in Winter we visited and had a brilliant day. It was fascinating to see the deer at such close quarters. There are some very picturesque walks with benches strategically placed to admire the views. The Jacob sheep are also worth seeing. There also a good number... More

We are national trust members so free entry, the house was closed but a very enjoyable walk around the grounds looking at the deer sheep etc, If your not NT members think £8 to visit, so thats a bit pricey for a walk!!!!! Nice coffee and shop selling Venison and collection of carriages and outbuildings to view.

Visited today and were charged £8 each just to walk round the fields , the house was closed . It's a lovely place and I'm sure far prettier in the spring , and there is plenty of wildlife to look at. But there are similar places around Warwickshire for FREE . I wouldn't pay to go again

One of the few locations open during Winter and although the house was not open for viewing we did get a fantastic tour of the kitchens and servants areas today. The history of the family and the house together with information about historic usage made the trip worthwhile. The architecture is wonderful and spread across several eras which is great... More

Visited on a mild January morning just after it opened and as most NT places are, it was fairly busy. The house is not open but there is a lovely walk which takes you by the river and almost into Hampton Lucy and then back towards the house and the deer and Jacobs sheep. The deer are magnificent, they are... More

So sorry to say how poor and expensive this attraction is. Very little of the house is on show and you can see it all in ten minutes. The gardens however are quite nice and you can usually see the deer. However opposite there are 2 garden centres which are both free of charge and the one closest to the... More
