Shaw House is one of the best preserved Elizabethan mansions in England, built in 1581. Over the centuries it has welcomed royalty, seen action during the Civil War, housed soldiers during World War II and schooled generations of local children.
The interior of the house has been adapted over the centuries and the nine stunning rooms are available to hire as a unique venue for conferences and meetings for up to 100 delegates.
Shaw House is also host to a year-round programme of events and activities for all ages.
