The approach aspect of Chavenage is virtually as it was left by Edward Stephens in 1576. Only two families have owned Chavenage; the present owners (Lowsley-Williams) since 1891 and the Stephens family before them.Inside Chavenage there are many interesting rooms, especially the 17th-century tapestries. The house and grounds have been used as a TV and film location on many occasions, including featuring as Trenwith in the hugely popular Poldark.
Chavenage House is a privately owned Elizabethan Manor House open to the public. It has been used as a TV location for many productions and is at present playing Trenwith in the popular Poldark. There is so much more to see and enjoy. Guided tours by members of the family.
