One again, this had very interesting exhibits and very helpful, friendly guides, which made our visit pleasant. There were activities for kids to do in the house, which was a great idea, to involve everyone in the visit to this historic house. Gorgeous gardens too.

This was the second of three homes that we visited while in Stratford. Although we did enjoy our visit, I must admit that we felt Shakespeare's birthplace and Anne Hathaway's cottage were a bit more interesting. This is a great place to visit with kids because they had activities for them to keep busy while touring the home. The tour... More

I loved this place nearly as much as Anne Hathaway's house but not quite! This house still has a lived in feel and the garden is pretty. Displays are good with a detailed info' sheet and helpful, keen staff.

Despite that my Japanese daughter does not understand English, she could enjoy her visit here by the program for children to find lovely stuffed mice from all the rooms. I was happy to have enough time to look around during her search.

A nice visit. The house is lovely and there are several interesting objects, paintings and pieces of furniture. The garden is nice too but a bit small. We were done very quickly - less than an hour.

This is a delightful timber framed house which has been carefully restored and the work is ongoing. Originally owned by a wealthy doctor who was married to one of Shakespeare's daughters, the place had been added to over the years but the Victorians had made some amendments which damaged the fabric of the building, and this is currently being addressed....

We stumbled upon this quite by chance having got off the Red Bus Tour outside. We realised it was part of the Shakespear trust and as we had tickets already from Shakespears birthplace, our entry here was included so we went in. I was glad we did, we were greeted by a very nice man at the desk who was... More

This was the third place we visited on the 'grand tour' of Shakespeare related properties. There is actually not overly much to see at this particular house, but we did get an excellent informative presentation from Angela which gave us some valuable insights into history. Certainly worth doing as part of the overall Stratford experience.

Really impressed by the knowledgable guide who steered us round the rooms. Not a great deal to see, but very interesting.
