We love to read about your experiences of visiting Charlecote. You all have many different reasons for wanting to see our special place and often take a variety of things from your visit.
Here is a blog post from Stitches of Time. As you may guess from the name, this blogger has an interest in stitching, sewing, knitting and historical embroidery…
…I love Tudor buildings with the red stone and the twisted chimneys and this had a beautiful setting as well. It was brilliant to see so many families enjoying the place, it was the school holidays and there was a teddy bear’s picnic on the lawn. Lots of future National Trust members hopefully who will bring their own children and help care for these places forever.
In the Great Hall there were some brilliant costume pictures, sadly too high up on the wall to take detailed shots but in the dining room there was wonderful wallpaper and in the library some very ornate needlepoint chairs that looked Spanish in origin.
I also loved the plasterwork on the ceilings, more inspiration for that book of textile patterns based on historic buildings that I am going to write one day!
