Thank you for your five star review. We have been successful in getting a Heritage Lottery Grant which will help us to be able to tell more about the many people who lived and worked at the Manor before, during and after Morris.

A well developed attraction with plenty of information and Morris furniture, fabrics etc. Parking is a walk away so be prepared for an amble through the village first. Pick up a leaflet at the carpark to help pick out the interesting houses.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Kelmscott. The house and grounds were charming - it is easy to see why Morris and his family loved living there. The property was busy when we visited, but it never felt crowded. Visitors are given timed tickets which...More

Disappointed in the house and the garden. It was a long walk from the car park, entrance to the house is timed so avoid overcrowding, fair enough. Good room stewards although perhaps some a little too enthusiastic. Overall I didn't think the house showed much...More

Finding Kelmscott Manor takes you down endless country lanes, but the journey is worth it when you reach the pretty village of Kelmscott and walk through it to the manor. There is a shop and tea room, but these blend in with the lovely old...More

We enjoyed our trip though some of the volunteer staff come across as a little starchy for youngsters. Tea rooms were good value.

By all accounts William Morris was a bit of a polymath and you get some sense of this as you go round this charming house, with examples of textiles, embroidery, illustrated books and so on. The volunteers staffing each room were keen and knowledgeable and...More

It is a long walk from the carpark to the house, unless you are disabled, when it is very convenient, as there are several parking spaces right by the house for disabled people. The visit begins with a video in a barn, produced by the...More
