We started here and, as well as being able to get our ticket to all 5 places, we asked some difficult questions about the place which were answered knowledgeably. I hope the renovations do not change it radically or spoil the effect (see Shakespeared's birthplace comment)

Centrally located so easy to pop in when you have half an hour to spare. Adds a bit more to Shakespeare's story.

Loved the building, the gardens and the very helpful and informative staff. Another wonderfully immersive experience where a little imagination can take you back to Shakespeare's time.

You get not only an interesting house, though not the original, but as well as that there is a very beautiful garden to enjoy. Again the curators are knowledgeable and have time to talk.

Apart from a pretty garden, these houses really do not offer much to the customer and are overpriced. Poor tourists. They buy a yearly, expensive ticket and barely get to use it.

You have to include this on the tour as it' s close to the town centre but such a shame that a previous idiot owner had the house knocked down. Excellent garden

This was a lovely house and had great activities for all the family, and when we visited in August, it had a tent in the back garden for kids to do many activities, to explore and create. A great idea to make the visit suitable for all the family. Beautiful gardens and with a wonderfully preserved house.

The house is well-kept and there is a huge lovely garden behind the property. Not much to see to be frank compared to other houses such as Shakespeare's birthplace but the garden is a hidden gem!
