This is another beautifully maintained historic home. It also has a cafe and a great gift shop offering very nice local artwork. Well worth a visit.

The home of Shakespeare's daughter. The house showed how the wealthy of the time lived. Good tea room and independent shop with individual art/craft gifts attached to the property

Visited this house using a Multi house ticket, great value especially as we had a 50% discount ticket from our B&B. This was our favourite of all the houses, and the least busy. Lovely large house with lots of interesting information about all of the rooms and the previous owners of the property. Very welcoming volunteers . interesting travelling display... More

I hadn't heard about this place before we visited but it was excellent. The children enjoyed the quizzes and the history about this lovely building. Well worth a visit.

Of all the homes included in the Shakespeare tour, this was my favourite. It's big and very interesting to walk through. We arrived right on closing time but the friendly staff didn't mind - we got the full treatment regardless. Fascinating story behind the house and it's occupants, presented by the extremely knowledgeable 'hostess'. Loads of pictures to be had... More

This fantastic attraction is interesting and well staffed. They have ramps for disabled people and a wonderful cafe with real tea. The only problem is tourists, a large group of which were incredibly loud and rather spoiled my visit to the cafe. Otherwise perfect.

Although William did not live here himself because it is the home of one of his daughters. Susanna was married to Doctor Hall hence the Hall's Croft. (who is buried with his wife in the Church). This is actually hundred yards or so from Holy Trinity church.

As with other attractions on the Shakespeare tour of Stratford-upon-Avon, this is a well organised and fascinating glimpse into the past. As usual, the guides are well briefed and bring the history of this home to life. Lovely garden that will be spectacular in Spring. For 2014 there is an excellent (and informative) exhibition covering the Warwickshire Regiments involvement in... More

A little away from the centre but maybe the most interesting & diverse interior of any of the Shakespeare-related buildings in town, with a small exhibition space (local WW1 history at the time of visiting) and large peaceful garden. The Jacobean home of Shakespeare’s daughter and grand-daughter. Contains very good local crafts shop The Arter.
