I visited Chavenage House on the 22nd of June this year.

They run guided tours of part of the house every Thursday and Sunday afternoon from May to September. A couple of things I found out on my visit that may be of interest are:-

They continue to run tours even when the film crews are there and on one fairly recent occasion Aiden Turner was gently ambushed by a local group of the Women's Institute (more info if you want it!)

The tours are really interesting but focus almost entirely on the history of the house and its inhabitants, there are only a few references to Poldark. (However, as the tour guides are often the owners/family members it may not be exactly the same talk that is given each time.) There are a few photos of the Poldark cast in some of the rooms of the house and you do get to see the great hall and the other rooms where much of the action has taken place. The oldest parts of the house and some of the period furniture are used in the filming.
