Chavenage House is an Elizabethan manor frequently used as a film/TV location. It is still a family home; only two families have owned the property; the present owners since 1891. During the civil war Col. Nathaniel Stephens supported Cromwell and this reflected in fine furniture, paintings and relics of the period. It is also renowned for the tapestries.Related image

Owlpen Manor is a romantic Tudor manor house in a picturesque setting. Stuart terraced gardens and magnificent yew topiary. It has unique painted cloths and family Arts and Crafts collections. “Owlpen, in Gloucestershire: ah, what a dream is there!” Vita Sackville-West

Leaving Waitrose car park at 8.45 am, we would hope to arrive at Chavenage by 10.45 am for a cup of coffee before having a tour of the house. There is a café which provides snack or light lunches (price not included in the ticket). We would hope to continue to Owlpen Manor , only a very few miles away, by 2.15 pm. Once again we would have a personal guided tour of the house. The coach should arrive back at Waitrose car park by 6.00 pm.

Price including coach and entry                                                             £39.35

Lunch would need to be pre-ordered but paid for individually on the day. Sadly, it is not a suitable trip for wheelchair bound members.
