Guided tour.

Great old house to visit and to learn the history of the property from the owners who conduct tours twice a week in the summer.

I would highly recommend coming here. The tour took just short of 2 hours and our tour guide, the head of the family, kept us thoroughly entertained throughout. He packed in so much fascinating information covering the history of the house, the family, details of the restoration, tv filming and so much more. Meeting the family made it a very... More

Went today as part of a group visit. Warm welcome from Caroline one of the daughters and her two dogs ! This lady is a fund of great stories relating to both the early history of the house and also the tv and film connections. Interspersed with great humour she was a delight to listen to. The house is a... More

I cannot recommend a visit strongly enough, we came expecting another boring visit. We then met the "Family", who instantly made us feel that we had known them for ages. Caroline is missing her vocation, story teller, comedian, and a charm that makes you feel at home. We came as part of an organised visit, but will be returning with... More

Weather was excellent, enhancing the wonderful setting for this truly special place. Went as a group and guided tours can be a bit dull especially after lunch when it is tricky to stay awake for very long! Not here- Caroline, one of the daughters was absolutely fantastic keeping everyone thoroughly involved with the history of the house and family, interspersed... More

What a FABULOUS afternoon my husband and I had when we visited Chavenage today! Such a glorious setting.....wonderful grounds ....and an amazing elizabethan house owned by the Lowsley-Williams family who welcome everyone who visits their home as thought they were friends!.....yes really!!! This experience differs from visiting any National Trust property because the owners themselves actually give you a guided... More

Delightful family and home! I was lucky enough to visit this gorgeous property on Easter Monday. Arrived early, so had a chance to see the grounds, on a perfect sunny day! I was made to feel extremely welcome by the family, and enjoyed a most interesting tour of some of the rooms in the house, then the chapel. This beautiful... More

This was the last item on our itinerarey, a visit to yet another Grand House, the forth of the week-end. Frankly, I'd had enough looking at Our Heritage by then. But as we got down from our coach, we were welcomed by a very pleasant friendly lady, who explained the difficulties that Stately Home owners have, generally their ancestors have... More

I really don't enjoy looking round old houses all that much. I did this one because my wife lusts after Ross Poldark. But goodness me, this was an enjoyable couple of hours! Where else would you hear stories that encompassed Dennnis Taylor playing snookler, headless ghosts, planes crashing into trees, royal kleptomaniacs and Gemma Arterton in the nude!!! An absolute...

We were hosted on a tour by the patriarch of the family. He was thoroughly entertaining with his historical stories and self deprecating asides. The manor is interesting with centuries of history from Cromwell to WWI Aussie Pilots landing at the home for morning coffee. The daughter was humorous as well but educational. A delightful time!
