Family members give the tour. Warm friendly funny. Great anecdotes. This home is a must for anyone touring cotswolds. Highgrove on one side and princess Ann on other. Not to be missed

We visited this wonderful historic family home on the last visiting day of 2014 and what a welcome we received. It was the best outing we had had for some time. The guided tour was given by the daughter of the owner-so entertaining and amusing and full of interesting facts, The owner took over half way through so it was... More

We had arranged a group tour with a family member as guide and, even though some of our party dropped out and reduced us to below the minimum number, the family cheerfully welcomed us into their home. The Master of the house was our guide and our 2 hour tour was both very informative and hugely entertaining. His personal insights... More

Ye Olde England - alive and kicking. A delightful real country house - a proper lived in home - with real people and their dogs ! This be not one of your 'grand' country houses, but, it be a great country house. What some others have in poshness this has in history. It be a museum piece, but, no museum.... More

Chavenage is an absolute delight, really first class. The tour of the house with David the current owner was interesting, informative and entertaining, (so much history in one privately owned house), his knowledge and love of the house and its history abundantly obvious. Half way round David hands tour duties to his sister who clearly shares his attributes and love... More

Had a great visit, lovely to have the family as guides (father, brother and sister sharing duties) all were great story tellers obviously loved their home and it's history. This personal touch made this tour stand out from others we did , would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the Cotswalds.

Not much to dislike really, this is a wonderful Elizabethan styled manor house, where you get a personal service from start to finish.

I am sure David Lowsley-Williams will excuse the pun. We were shown around his home by him and he really made the difference between this tour and other tours by guides. He is the current owner and told us about the history and also was a great recontour of various events and personal experiences. He also came across as a... More

A very nice friendly family who make you most welcome. The house and grounds are superb and well worth a visit. You may well recognise them, as they have appeared in loads of films and TV programmes. We had a tour of the house, grounds and chapel, starting with David (the father) as our guide. As the group was so... More

Chavenage House was an interesting stop near to Tetbury. The guides are family members, who have many detailed and personal stories to share. People are able to join in the tour at any time and therefore don't have to wait til an appointed hour. As with many old manor houses there is lots to see and tell about. It felt... More
