We take a break in Cirencester ‘capital of the Cotswolds’ and also visit the royal town of Tetbury. In the afternoon we visit Chavenage House, a stunning 16th century, grey Cotswold stone manor house with many Civil War associations. The house famously featured as ‘Trenwith’ – the Poldark family manor.
