Charlecote’s wildlife encompasses all creatures large and small which choose our carefully-managed park and gardens for their home. We also have historic herds of fallow deer and Jacob sheep as well as our own bees which produce honey you can buy in the shop. See what our volunteer photographer has spotted lately.
Any time of year and every type of weather is perfect for spotting wildlife at Charlecote – birds, bugs and animals all prefer something different and you’re bound to see something interesting when you come.
