2021 Christmas and New Year at Charlecote

Charlecote Park is a beautiful sight in the snow, but please check if we're open first

Join us for cosy comfort food and festive family fun.

Discover all the things to see and do at Charlecote this Christmas, Boxing Day and into the New Year.

Festive family trail in the parkland
 

This December, join in with our family trail around the park and gardens. More details to be released soon.

Wrap up warm for adventures in the great outdoors. Wellies are the best foot wear this time of year as we often experience flooding over the winter months.

 

Things to see in the parkland

The fallow deer and jacob sheep are often well camouflaged at this time of year. Can you spot them feasting on the extra food we've left out for them to help them in the colder months?

There's a steady stream of birds visiting the Spinney this time of year, where we top up the bird feeders almost daily. Pick up a spotter sheet to see which birds stop by for a bite to eat.

Bring your binoculars to see a flash of blue as the Kingfishers spend their winters with us and the herons, egrets and other wildfowl forage at the rivers' edge.

Christmas in the house

The house will be closed over winter this year. There's lots of conservation work going on behind the scenes and we hope to reopen the house to visitors sometime later in the spring.

Eating, drinking and Christmas shopping

Warm up with a selection of delicious, festive take-away treats from the Wood Yard Cafe. Do you have a traditional food or drink you enjoy this time of year? See what seasonal treats are on offer after a wintery walk in the parkland.

There's still time to do a bit of Christmas shopping. The Servants' Hall shop is stocked up with beautiful items and sustainable gifts to help you find the perfect present.


Boxing Day and New Year Walks

The parkland is open every day from 9am - 4pm including Boxing Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day - and all the days inbetween! (Charlecote Park will be closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, 24th & 25th December 2021).

Grab your wellies and walking boots and join us for a traditional Boxing Day stroll around the parkland with your loved ones. The days between Christmas and New Year are perfect for stretching the legs and going for a wander in the fresh air, photographing wintry wildlife scenes, or getting stuck in to the activities on the family trail.

In the New Year, pick up a parkland map and stretch your legs to take in some of the beautiful winter wildlife and peaceful scenes that change in every weather.
