If you’re a regular visitor to Charlecote, you may have notice that the downstairs room in the Gatehouse has been closed for a while. This has been because we wanted to create something special…
The Gatehouse was build in the mid 1500s and is Grade I listed. When you’re visiting, it is pretty much the first building you come across. For this reason it is the perfect location to give you an introduction to the site.
Our team wanted to use this space to give the long history of Charlecote. But there are so many stories to tell. How on earth do we share them all? Continue reading
Our herd of fallow deer are often the reason people visit Charlecote. Beautiful, graceful and powerful – they have a long history here.
But what do we know of their history?
We’re very proud to be part of the AHRC-funded Fallow Deer project. This project is looking at discovering more about when fallow deer were introduced to the UK and their movement through Europe.
A fascinating film has been produced to look at what the team have discovered so far. Charlecote features at around 22minutes.
For more information on the project, please visit the Dama International website.

In June we welcome lots of new arrivals to the park. Our fawns.
Volunteer photographer, Jana, has captured some lovely images of these animals who reside in our West Park. Access to this area is restricted at this time of year to give the deer an area of sanctuary. We do run regular volunteer-led walks and special events to take people into the West park. Do enquire at reception or check our website for updates if you are interested in finding out more.
In the mean time we hope that you enjoy this clip…
