Chavenage - Tetbury
Chavenage is a wonderful Elizabethan house of mellow grey Cotswold stone and tiles which contains much for the discerning visitor.
The approach aspect of Chavenage is virtually as it was left by Edward Stevens in 1576. Only two families have owned Chavenage: the present owners since 1891, and the Stephens family before them. Colonel Nathaniel Stephens was cursed for supporting Cromwell during the Civil War, giving rise to the legend of weird happenings at Chavenage since that time.
Of particular note to see on a visit to Chavenage are Cromwell's room; the Main Hall featuring stained glass windows; the Ballroom; and the Oak room with elaborate panels dating back to 1590.
Chavenage has been used for many films and TV episodes including The Mysterious Affair at Styles, a Gotcha for Noel Edmonds House Party, Berkeley Square and Cider with Rosie.
Chavenage is especially suitable for those wishing an intimate and personal tour, usually conducted by the owner, or for small groups wanting a change from the larger establishments. It also provides a charming venue for small conferences, functions and weddings
