Enjoy a private tour and lunch at Chavenage house where you will feel the warmest of welcomes and dine with the family as they reveal more of the history and anecdotes of the house through the ages.
Chavenage House is not only a stunning Elizabethan Manor House, it is also one of the stars of the Poldark series. The family are delightful and will share some of the incredible history that has taken place behind the incredible façade.
Henry VIII gave the house to the family of his wife, Jane Seymour, although it returned to the crown when they were executed for treason a few years later.
Oliver Cromwell even has a bedroom named after him following his stay during the Civil War.
Ironically in the 16th century it was thought that no member of the royal family would want to live somewhere so remote as Gloucestershire and yet now Chavenage is surrounded by members of the royal family. Prince Charles’ Highgrove Estate is just a couple of miles away and Princess Anne lives at Gatcombe Park, a few miles in the other direction.
