Charlecote Park, National Trust House and Gardens

Charlecote Park is a fine red brick manor house near Stratford (OS Grid Reference SP259563, see map by Streetmap.co.uk), with extensive gardens and its own resident deer herd:

Occasionally during the summer, the garden hosts outdoor plays. I've seen Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream here in 2004, and Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest in 2005. Check the NT website for Events at Charlecote Park.

Just a kilometre away on the road to Hampton Lucy is Charlecote Mill, a working flour watermill.
