"We hope that when you visit us, you will feel that you are in the relaxed atmosphere of a family house. At Chavenage you can escape into the peaceful surroundings of a Cotswold manor, virtually unchanged for 400 years."
David Lowsley-Williams, Chavenage.

Latest news from Caroline
We visited on Bank Holiday Monday and were captivated by the atmosphere and warmth of Chavenage. I just wanted to extend my appreciation of the tour provided by (and I beg his pardon if I remember his name incorrectly!) David Lowsley-Williams as the tour he provided was such a refreshing change from the "average guided tours" provided by so many! We had the opportunity to exchange a few words with a very pleasant female family member after the tour and found her gracious and charming. How lovely that the family are so willing to ensure that their visitors feel a valued part of Chavenage. Thank You. I shall be enthusing the charms of Chavenage to friends and colleagues.

This is undoubtedly the best guided tour we have ever experienced. Caroline’s delivery of the potted history of both the family and the house is excellent and hugely entertaining. Although tours are between 2 and 5pm on both a Thursday and Sunday, one needs to arrive promptly in order to benefit from the full two hour tour. We will definitely return and would highly recommend a visit. Excellent value for money!

Disabled Access.
Chavenage is an Elizabethan building retaining many of its original features (dating from before 1576). As a result, there is unfortunately no wheelchair access, and there are steps and uneven floors throughout the house.

Health and Safety Advice.
In the gardens there are uneven surfaces, non-edible plants, low branches, and slippery surfaces in wet weather. In the building there are some steep stone steps, low doorways, uneven and slippery floors, and other steps not immediately obvious. Children should always be accompanied while visiting Chavenage.
