I have stumbled upon Chavenage House randomly, looking for some place to visit as I was working as an au pair nearby. I am a huge lover of castles and ancient manors and Chavenage did not disappoint my expectations. The house was just gorgeous and so was the small tour with the owner family! I really enjoyed learning about the... More

Had a most enjoyable afternoon at Chavenage House, our guide Caroline was superb, her knowledge and humour made the visit exceptionally funny and interesting. If you visit the Tetbury area and have a Sunday afternoon free you could not ask for a better way to spend your time visiting this lovely house.

Like many I went to see the house after seeing it on Poldark. However, quite apart from its screen credits it also has a fascinating role to play in history, particularly during the Civil War. It is very much a family owned and run house, the grandson greeted us, the son sold us a guide book and the daughter gave... More

My partner and I had the pleasure to visit Chavenage House on a Sunday afternoon. The house is historically important and has been used in a number of television productions. Still owned by the family, members of who take turns in conducting tours. We were shown around by Caroline, who's comic timing is matched by her historical knowledge. We highly... More

Visited here on a sunny Sunday afternoon, I am not an historian but I was completely enthralled by the tour by David. It was like reading a really absorbing book with a mixture of history, family anecdotes, and beautiful buildings and views. Would recommend as a must for a visit if in the area. Check their web site for times... More

There is much to tell you but it is a must that you visit yourselves (with... More

What an amazing visit. Chavenage is a hidden gem on the outskirts of Tetbury. It is brimful of character and steeped in history, from Tudor times onwards. Our guide, Caroline, enthralled us with her knowledge, and made us laugh with many hilarious stories of growing up in the house. Thank you for a very interesting afternoon. This property is well...

My wife and i visted this house and what a fantastic afternoon we had.Apart from the history of this wonderful house which goes from Oliver Cromwell to D Day landings and all the films that have been made there, nothing prepares you for the guided tour given by George the son of family who own this property. He is full... More

My purpose for visiting was because this house was once used by Australian airmen who were stationed at nearby Lasborough and Leighterton. The men would land their planes on the front lawn and take tea...attend parties. I can see the larrikin Aussies, especially the one who crashed his plane into the tree that is still out the front. It was... More
