Courtesy of the Holburne Museum’s Friends Committee, we are offering a fantastic opportunity to explore the gardens of Charlton Down House and Tetbury.

Charlton Down House is owned by Neil and Julie Record. Previously the focus of the estate was equestrian-based and no real interest was taken in the maintenance of the buildings and gardens. Neil and Julie purchased Charlton Down with the intention of it being used as a family home, a weekend and holiday break away from their busy lives in London. They have invested substantially in restoring the buildings and gardens.

They have developed large herbaceous borders, a topiary garden, planted a copse, and have turned the old horse school into a walled garden providing vegetables and flowers to the family. They have also introduced rescued animals to Charlton Down, retired show horses, donkeys, ponies, and even chickens.

From Charlton Down House, we have a short drive to Tetbury for lunch at The Close Hotel. Afterwards there is free time to explore Tetbury itself – perhaps a visit to the beautiful Georgian Gothic St Mary’s church or some of the fabulous independent shops in the town.

Ticket cost includes return private coach transport, arrival refreshments and home made cakes at Charlton Down House as well as an introductory talk, lunch and free time to explore Tetbury. Departing the Holburne at 9am, returning about 4.30pm.
