“A beautiful visit”
Reviewed 11 March 2013

We walked inside and very much enjoyed the art work as well as the historic house. When we have more money we will look forward to coming back here to buy jewelry, pottery and more. Even though we didn't buy we felt welcome here to browse and would certainly return for another look next time we visit.

“A Real Gem”
Reviewed 27 February 2013

We love the Sparrow House! We live in the area and are members as it is a historical site as well as a fine craft/art shop. I go to the Sparrow House all the time, year-round as it has wonderful, well priced unique gifts, finely crafted jewelry, home decor accessories, art photos, paintings, handmade scarves, purses, you name it. It is a charming place in a historical building that deserves patronage and support by joining as a member and/or purchasing fabulous items here.

The staff is wonderful, dedicated, very knowledgable and helpful. They always remember us when we visit. They do fantasic gift wraping and make every purchase special, whether it is for yourself or a gift. It is hard to visit without purchasing something enchanting! If you come to Plymouth visit the Sparrow House - you will not be disappointed.

“Oldest house in the area”
Reviewed 23 September 2012

Interesting history lesson on the strides made by the Pilgrims only 20 years after they landed at Plymouth. This is a large home and is very interesting in both architecture and design. Probably not a must-see, but if you have some extra time, it's great to see.
