  • Lovely day out. Beautiful gardens and a really interesting house to explore. Well with the £8.
  • Lovely art deco house and beautiful gardens. Interesting inhabitants and amazing connections to historic and theatrical events of the 20th century. Plays performed on site some summer evenings.
  • A wonderful snapshot of George Bernard Shaw and affluent life in the early 20th century. After a visit, there is also the gorgeous village to wander through too, particularly the two churches and the village pub.
  • Nice house with very nice welcoming staff, it's down very winding narrow country roads and although there are plenty of passing places the locals go fast round the bend, nearly got hit a couple of times from people coming the other way. The house once you get there is interesting and the garden is lovely.
  • A beautiful arts and craft's house used as Shaws weekend country retreat. A lovely little place to visit.
