Do not even think of going here if you like modern art/furniture. This is William Morris's country retreat and the house oozes his influence and tastes and styles. It is incredible with an excellent tea room and well stocked shop. The room guides are friendly...More

We booked pre-timed tickets - interesting house and super enthusiastic and friendly volunteers in every room keen to assist. Good tea room and a little gift shop. Outdoor seating for refreshments if you have better weather than us.

We both enjoyed our visit to Kelmscott. Very picturesque and full of charm and history. The room guide sheet provided enough information about each room. We found the attic to be fascinating! Staff polite and welcoming. We will return!

William Morris had plenty of redeeming factors and a somewhat chequered relationship worth finding out more about. This is a great place if you are into fashion and if you are into gossip.
