I am a huge fan of William Morris and am trying to get round all Morris homes, museums etc. I went with friends to Kelmscott Manor on a lovely sunny day in August and it did not disappoint. Yes the house is not a large...More

The house itself is beautiful but the visit wasn't worth the money we paid to go around - it doesn't take long to go through both the house and gardens. Interesting if you're a die-hard William Morris fan but I'd spend my money elsewhere otherwise....More

The manor costs £11 per person. The house takes about 15 mins to go around and the garden takes about as long. Not worth the money or effort.More

We visited Kelmscott Manor - as a group of Morris enthusiasts, and weren’t disappointed. The timed entry means that the small spaces are not too crowded, and the information available regarding each room and their contents was informative. The Manor is beautifully kept and the...More

I’m a huge William Morris fan, but we’ve visited here twice from Canada because we love it so much. Beautifully calm and relaxing. We were also there at the right time to have lunch at the tea room, which was very nice.

Pretty house with relaxing atmosphere. It is well worth taking the time to walk down the lane to see the cottages, village hall, church and old school house. There is also a pub and a farm house doing b&b if you would like to stay...More

While this is an interesting site I felt an opportunity had been lost to make more of the creativity of William Morris’s work. There’s not much of it on display, although the rooms are reasonably interesting. The focus seemed to be on his wife and...More
