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

 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.

  2. The interior is magnificent! It's fascinating to see all the details in old houses.

  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.

  4. Hello, I hope you could help me.
    I live in China and I am doing a search for Traill history and I came across a picture on here which is Walter Traill's coat of arms, on a stained bay-window at Charlecote Park.
    His daughter, Katherine TRAYLEY married James DE PABENHAM about 1355.
    I would like to know if there is a better picture of the coat of arms?
    Secondly would there be any photos of painting of Katherine TRAYLEY?

    1. I would sugest up emailed the National Trust website in the link I provded at the end, I'm sure they can help better than I can
