“Take this in on your way to/from Chartwell”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Quebec House is just down the road from Chartwell so it makes and ideal bolt on before or after a Chartwell visit. It's a lot quieter and on the 2 occasions I visited it wasn't busy at all.

Again FREE to National Trust members. Otherwise about £6 or so to enter.

It's a relatively small property so 60 - 90 minutes is plenty. You'll take nearer the 90 if you have lots of questions of the stewards who, as with all National Trust properties, are well informed and keen to share their knowledge and insights.

Some impressive rooms on show - simply furnished and typical of the time when Wolfe lived there. And some interesting features for kids such as the kitchen.

Parking is nearby in the local parking lot. You need to pay but it's not outrageous, a pound or so.

There's a small refreshment service with a limited menu - but that's ok because you didn't go there for a gastronomic experience did you? There are plenty of nearby restaurants just round the corner in Westerham if you need them.

“A special place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

A rather special place as there were few other visitors and plenty of helpful and knowledgeable volunteers to give you the answers you need. It's not a large house, but filled with interesting items and a real feel of yesteryear. The exhibition in the barn on the battle of Quebec was v good - not too much and clear. I sure felt I had learned a lot by the time we left.

“New rooms are interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Came back today, they had opened new rooms this year which were really interesting the kitchen makes cakes using Mrs Wolfe's original recipes. This is a great place to visit with children as they have toys the family used to play with/touch, this place is quite small so you will do it within an hour but if your visiting Chartwell it is definitely worth popping in

“Peaceful domestic and pretty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

What a relief from the crowds and coaches at Chartwell to go into this smaller, delightful old house. There is a useful short video about General Wolfe and the capture of Quebec. The history of the house is well explained as you go round. We enjoyed a quiet cup of tea outside in the garden. I felt I would be happy to move in. What a pity Wolfe was killed at so young an age (32) rather than enjoying a long retirement in this pretty and gentle place.

“Worth a visit on way or back from Chartwell”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Definatly on for Canadians. General Wolfe lived there.
Small house in Westerham. Interesting with helpful staff. Not as busy as Chartwell.
Tip plan visit on Sunday as no car park and you have to use council car park who charge.
