We had a private tour of the house arranged for a club outing. It turned out to be the best house visit ever and we've made a good number over the past 70 years! We were met by Caroline, daughter of the current owner whose family have owned the house since the time of her great-great-grandfather. Caroline gave us a... More

This historic Elizabethan house, home of the Lowsley-Williams family is a must see in the area of the Cotswolds near Tetbury. The tour was recommended by the tourist centre in Tetbury as an historic home with tours conducted by the family which could be quite colorful. The house has served as a location for many television productions such as Agatha... More

I was visiting friends in the area so we did a lovely walk across fields to get to Chavenage which seemed very hidden away - a huge part of its charm. Talk about going back in time! No wonder they do a lot of period filming here and also weddings to help make ends meet - it really is stunningly... More

We had a private guided tour of this magnificent house this week and quite honestly, we had the BEST tour ever. We were shown around by members of the family and we have make a special mention to the enthusiastic George, who kept us glued to his every word. Not only did we get a insight into the amazing history... More

Excellent visit. The tour is conducted by the members of the family so you get some interesting insights. The house is facinating with some very unique features. If you are into country house visiting this is definitely one not to miss. The house is open 2-5 and they do a circular type tour in which you just join the group... More

Went with a group to have a tour of this wonderful old house. On the day we went filming had just finished for the remake of Poldark. The family, who live in the house, showed us their wonderful home and gave us a very informative and amusing talk. We were in the Cotswolds for five days and this has to... More

This was our second time to visit Chavenage House. Again it was our favorite house and favorite tour in all of the Cotswolds. The owners love their home, and show this love in their tours. Our guide was the daughter of the owner(Caroline). She is a wonderful guide. Very humorous family stories and anecdotes of their life at Chavenage. The... More

This is a real treat - a personal tour from a member of the family who knows every nook and cranny and has a good line in amusing stories alongside the key facts. The house is historic as well as very lived-in, and the whole informal experience is so different from many other places where perforce the official guide tells... More

We were lucky enough to visit during the Easter weekend. When we arrived we were greeted by George, Dad of the family outside the main house, and once parked up our tour began! George gave us a fascinating tour of the house (some areas were set up as a film set so not as normal) briefly handing over to Grandfather... More
