  • I visited with a group of around 20 friends. We had a very information talk with a local amateur historian before entering the house and gardens. Extracts from GBS's plays were acted out in the garden...  more »
  • I have been twice recently, on both occasions with visitors from abroad. The house tells so much about a most extraordinary man and his work. Visit his office on a turntable at the bottom of the garde...  more »

  • If you are a fan of George Bernard Shaw, this is a must-see. Shaw and his wife lived and worked here for decades. The gardens are charming and contain Shaw's "writing shed". The house is much as he left it but several rooms have been made into display areas, showing his Oscar, his Nobel prize for literature and paintings and sculptures os Shaw. It's a little remote but we'll worth the drive. The staff in the house and gardens were volunteers and they were excellent; so knowledgeable and friendly.
  • Fascinating place in a beautiful setting. One of the more unusual National Trusts I've been to.
  • Nice House, abit small for a national trust. Contains Shaw's Oscar
  • Interesting house, pleasant and peaceful garden.
  • Nice for an afternoon out. Very quiet and peaceful
