Shaws Corner Houses
Ayot St Lawrence
Shaw's Corner is the former home to famous Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw for over 40 years.
Bernard Shaw lived in this Edwardian Arts & Crafts-influenced house from 1906 until his death in 1950. The rooms remain much as he left them, with many literary and personal effects evoking the individuality and genius of this great dramatist. The kitchen and outbuildings are evocative of early 20th-century domestic life. Shaw's writing hut is hidden at the bottom of the garden, which has richly planted borders and views over the Hertfordshire countryside.
Address, Ayot St Lawrence, Hertfordshire, AL6 9BX
