Tucked away in one of the most beautiful parts of the county is Shaw's Corner, former home of one of the greatest playwrights of all time, George Bernard Shaw, and now the National Trust's only house in Hertfordshire. From this peaceful and tranquil place, Shaw wrote some of the key plays of the twentieth century: most famously of all 'Pygmalion' and it was here that he welcomed his pantheon of friends: actors, writers and statesmen.

It is an evocative and inspirational place, perfect for reading - or even writing, a book, sketching, painting, or perhaps rehearshing your next production. With three and a half acres of garden there's plenty of space for everyone!

Shaw's Corner has acted as the backdrop for outstanding creativity since Bernard Shaw arrived here in 1906. What will it inspire in you?
