  • Visited on a beautifully sunny day with my 2 youngest children (5 & 7). Venue is a surprising insight into a fascinating man. The staff clearly try really hard to keep everything as authentic as possible, which they do quite successfully. However, this also means that signs are an absolute minimum and although they were very knowledgeable, I found the opportunities to ask one of the guides was very much dependant on how many other visitors wanted to ask questions. That would be my only gripe though. We're very likely to go back in the future and would certainly recommend it as a well preserved insight into years gone by and to the life of author G B Shaw Esq.
  • Beautiful house with everything you need to know about Shaw, the guides are very knowledgeable and the gardens are beautiful. Overall we were there for around 1 hour and a half. It's not huge, but on a sunny day you can purchase an ice cream and enjoy the lush gardens and lawn and relax. BEWARE - The road to get to Shaw's Corner is a single track narrow road, can be tight in some places!
  • Lovely historical house on a picturesque area at Ayot St Lawrence. Guides ar very kind.
  • A gorgeous little gem, perfect little Cafe. Tucked just far enough out the way to help you relax.
  • Fascinating insights into GBS and in a beautiful setting.
