Spot Poldark at Chavenage House

Tetbury, Gloucestershire

Come and see 'Trenwith', the Poldark family home, actually 'played' by Chavenage House in Tetbury and you may spot Aiden Turner as Ross Poldark!

Chavenage House is a wonderful Elizabethan house of mellow Cotswold stone which is a family home  as well as often being used as a location for TV & film productions.

Famous stars to have graced the house include Oscar winning Eddie Redmayne, Jamie Doran, the late Warren Clarke as well as Aidan Turner.

The BBC's remake of 'Poldark' the romantic sage set in 18th century Cornwall is based on the novels on Winston Graham and proved such a success a second series is on the way.

But Chavenage House has a history of its own as well for visitors to hear about and you can escape into the peaceful surroundings of a Cotswold manor, virtually unchanged for 400 years.

Take an intimate tour of the house with the current owner, David Lowsley-Williams, and you’ll get to hear about the ghosts who allegedly stalk the corridors.

You’ll also get to see the rooms where Oliver Cromwell and his General, Ireton, stayed in 1648 (look out for the swords, pikes and other Civil War relics), along with the other immaculate, wood-walled rooms.
