Charlecote House

Charlecote Park

Charlecote has been home to the Lucy family since the 12th century. The gardens include a formal parterre, colourful herbaceous planting, woodland walk and the wider parkland (inspired by 'Capability' Brown), which offers miles of walks and views across the River Avon. However, the serene surroundings are witness to the apparition of a mysterious young girl who re-enacts her suicide by drowning.
