Reasons for trip

Charlecote is the home of the Lucy family where they have lived since the 12th century. The National Trust now look after the property which is Tudor, with a Victorian kitchen, and a wonderful carved Victorian buffet sideboard. There are miles of walks in the woods and parkland by the River Avon and stories of William Shakespeare poaching deer on the land. A herd of fallow deer still graces the park, and you can also visit nearby Charlecote Mill if it is open on a Sunday, and the nearby Church.

There are refreshments and often events such as vintage cars, and plants for sale so it is a good afternoon visit, which can be combined with nearby Stratford on Avon.

The Tudor gateway which you see as you walk up to the house is a lovely sight on arrival, and there is a beautiful parterre at the back down to the river planted with bulbs in the Spring.
