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.

I was there listening to a guy telling the story of hall's croft. For me this is a very interesting part of "just looking" the house. I love the history and now i know why it called croft

First time I have visited this attraction in Stratford. Much quieter than other of the Shakespeare trust properties despite it being so close. Enjoyed trying on some crowns too and the gardens are beautiful.

Very similar to the birthplace, there is not much left in the house and it does not take long to go round. Gardens are beautiful and very well maintained.

not sure what happened to the 'new house' as apparently they've covered up what they unearthed with grass!! surely there must be another way of preserving historic findings so that visitors can see

Hi, Thanks for taking the time to review your visit - I think your comments refer to another one of Shakespeare's Family Homes; New Place & Nash's House. The significant finds from our 'Dig for Shakespeare' project at New Place are now on display in an exhibition at Nash's House. We also have big plans to re-imagine the site of... More
