About
Explore this fascinating house, the childhood home of General James Wolfe. Discover the dramatic battle that won dominance in North America and claimed the territories of New France, that would later become Canada, for the British. Also learn of Wolfe's tragic death, in our exhibition above the Coach House. Travel back in time and see the house as it appeared in the 1730s when James Wolfe and his family lived here. Fall asleep on our replica 18th-century bed, or take your chances with Mrs Wolfe’s ‘cure for consumption’ in the kitchen. Quebec House, gardens and second-hand bookshop are open. Due to ongoing restrictions the house has a limited offer.

Great house in a good location
Oct 2021
A very interesting visit. The guides were lovely to listen to, very informative without being over the top. It felt like a family home, comfortable to walk around. Very pretty wrap around garden.
General Wolfe had spent time in Greenwich, London. The name was familiar to me as my grandsons attend James Wolfe School in Greenwich, a remarkable connection. Quebec House is a short walk from the town centre car park and other amenities in Westerham.

Beautiful home filled with history
Sep 2021 • Couples
Home of General James Wolfe who won the Battle of Quebec for the British, claimed the territories of New France, that would later become Canada, this house was special having learned of the battle as young Canadian students - largely from the French perspective. The volunteers were very knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the house and General Wolfe. While it is not a large property, it is definitely worth a visit.

Small scale ; Big on history.
Nov 2019
Approaching this elegant red brick house along a busman road was a novel experience : National Trust properties I've previously visited have tended to be substantial mansions in their own extensive grounds. Once inside, however,and having been charmingly welcomed, thoughts of its size gave way to interest in General James Wolfe ( whose childhood home this was) and mounts of his life and, in particular to the battle, he'd unexpectedly won against the French at the Canadian town after whom this house has been named. Our enthusiastic tour guide, Nick, was a source of knowledge - about the different Centuries during which the hiyuse was constructed, and the minutiae of facts about the 1738 battle. Afterwards, an opportunity to sample freshly coked samples of period delicacies was a sweet treat. Altogether, well worth a visit.

Well worth visiting
Oct 2019
For people who like historical building, how Canada was won for the British, General James Wolfe, or George II Military! & we went on a Sunday, when Mrs Wolfe's cake recipes were being made & were available to taste!!
You must visit the exhibition upstairs at the coach house & watch the videos on the military campaign, before you visit the house, it puts it all in context.
The volunteers in the house are very friendly & know a lot about the rooms they are stewarding.

It’s just a little boring.
Aug 2019 • Friends
Depending on what you’re into, I found this visit a little boring.

The staff were friendly and polite. I learned a little more than I already knew.

The house was pretty and interesting.

I’m glad I’ve seen it, however I won’t be going again.

Delightful town house
Oct 2019 • Couples
This lovely historic house, the family home of General Wolfe has been well restored and now represents a good idea of what the home of Wolfe would have looked like in the 18th C. A number of genuine artefacts have now been assembled and the visitor centre in the coach house tells the story of the capture of Quebec. A small but interesting property with keen and knowledgeable volunteers.

We really enjoyed seeing this historical home with its interesting link to James Wolfe. Again great NT staff. It’s set up in the 1730s style.
