Charlecote Park Part Two



On our visit  Charlecote park which you can see in Part 1 we did take the opportunity  to  look round the house so here are a few of the photos I took inside



The entrance hall as you walk through the door the table you see in the foreground is and incredible piece of work





Off to the right is a bay window with stained glass in the top



and below a bowl with pigeons surrounding it 
some beautiful work





There were some very good busts on show like the bard himself though I thought the only thing he ever did there was poach the deer. The fellow to the right is one of the owners





 






Two more busts, the lady on the right really had a stern face about her while the other more somber











Think this was a Music room









One of the bedrooms


And a long corridor






The view from a bedroom window




another small bedroom





View out of one of the windows to the entrance
Bathroom

 Came down this staircase covered with paintings and tapestry you can view




Think this is the library


Which has lots of books round the walls




and some amazing stained glass




I think its a harpsichord you see here
Fine dining in the dining room





and more stained glass




 and this one above the entrance door.









After going outside again we had a look round the kitchens
 Which was interesting, even recognized a few things
 My gran used to cook over an open fire like this in Ireland, best bread I ever tasted

 Kitchen table, the white cone is a salt cone

 After coming out we decided to go home I passed this wonderful sundial




though I quickly stopped off to look in one of the gatehouse rooms
Where they had this model of Charlecote

Hope you enjoyed the tour. For more information and if you would like to visit go to the National Trust Website

  1. The kitchen is the fascinating place, full of items that tell us much of the history and life in the great house.

  3. I can't get over the ancient artefacts preserved in precise detail shown here. This mansion was built with royalty in mind. No doubt it took money and servants to look after it. All indications seem to suggest the English tudor era but I could be in error.
