Tour centuries of English history in an original setting at Chavenage House, an Elizabethan period manor. Made of Cotswold stone and a tiled roof, the house features two ornate tapestry rooms, tall stained glass windows, and extensive paneling with English Civil War and Edwardian sections. Take the two-hour tour given by a member of the owning family, who will share numerous anecdotes, including the royalist legend of Chavenage, a curse of fatal sickness for acquiescing in the execution of Charles I. This photogenic piece of property with a garden designed by Lancelot "Capability" Brown remains very popular for wedding photos and shooting historical films. For refreshment, head to Tetbury, about 2.4 km (1.5 mi) away. Use our Tetbury itinerary planner to arrange your visit to Chavenage House and other attractions in Tetbury.

Hopeless cafe, forgot drinks and was made to wait 20 min for them whilst serving everyone else. And now run out of the drink. Just poor service, never seen it from a basic restaurant. more »
