Wonderfully historic, interesting and important museum. Fronted by welcoming cafe and gift shop. Clean toilet facilities.

A very inspiring visit, to be able to experience the same space where John Clare spent so much time. The interiors are austere, which lets your imagination roam, inspired by the interpretation panels around you. There is a dressing up space, where kids can go for it, and plenty of original material, including photos, to interest adults. There is a cafe at the entrance, serving tea/coffee/cake as well as a lunch menu.

Pleasent time spent here, garden very restful to just sit. Cottage is lovely but stairs are very step. Not suitable for young children or elderly.
