This was the last of the Shakespeare family homes we visited and so glad we saved the best until last. Lots to see both inside the house and out. Your free to browse around at your leisure.

We started by visiting the cafe, which was lovely; the cakes were delicious and the staff were friendly and helpful. We then visited the house itself. It was well presented with a lot of furniture of the era (not original unfortunately!) and a fair amount of information.

This is one of three houses covered on the annual town houses pass (the other two being Shakespeare's Birthplace and New Place). This house belonged to Shakespeare's daughter and from the moment you walk through the door, you can feel a palpable sense of history. The rooms are lovely to walk through and on a sunnier day there's an outside... More

The prettiest house in Stratford Upon Avon? … I think so! Absolutely beautiful and just a short walk from the town centre. The staff were helpful and informative when we visited and we enjoyed the looking around.

This house was owned by William Shakespeare's daughter who was married to a doctor. Though we did not have time to go in, there is an exhibition of Dr. John Hall's notes on medical practices of the time. We were told that in order to treat a sore throat, a yellow frog would be dangled over the patient's open mouth,... More

Really worth a visit, especially if you can find a time when it is not going to be busy. We went as soon as it opened one day in mid-Jan and were almost the only people in there, which was fabulous. It gives you a great feeling of what it would have been like to live in the house over... More

Visited the house over the weekend with my wife using the town house pass which represented excellent value. The house itself is a well preserved example of a Jacobean house. The gardens looked very tranquil and i enjoyed just sitting and taking in the the peace and quiet. The world war one exhibit was very moving and the display well... More

We had a super look round, there is a lovely trail for little ones to complete to keep them occupied whilst the adults have a look. Cafe is very friendly and is a lovely Pit stop for coffee and cake.

This was the house of one of Shakespeare's daughters and again has house and garden to explore. Easily walking distance of his birthplace and the 3 house ticket option is worth buying. On a nice summers day you could easily spend time wandering around the herbal gardens but unfortunately it was bitterly cold the day we were there so we... More
