The garden

Pretty, twisting lanes lead to Shaw’s Corner, the Edwardian villa that was home to George Bernard Shaw, the famous Irish playwright, for over 40 years.

Today the house remains much as he left it and a stroll to the bottom of the garden reveals one of the most famous garden sheds - Shaw’s wonderful revolving Writing Hut.
The wooden hut was mounted on a revolving mechanism so that as he worked, Shaw could follow the sun throughout the day. Tucked away behind trees, this is the place where many of his plays were written. Photos inside the house show Shaw in the garden, looking much as it does today.
