‪A Slice Of History.‬
العائلة • أكتوبر 2021
‪Shaw House is magnificent; it’s used as conference centre and a registry office, but on the days it’s open to the public it’s well worth a look round. There’s an excellent craft room to enjoy with kids and some seasonal trails to do as you explore the house and garden. We particularly enjoyed the Pumpkin Hunt. There’s even a sweet little cafe that’s good for a cup of tea and a slice of cake, or tables in the grounds to enjoy your picnic. Staff were lovely, friendly and helpful.

The information boards were pretty detailed and the anecdotes about historic moments and Royal visitors were interesting. It’s not easy to find your way round, with no logical route through the house, so take care to make sure you don’t miss anything! There was a whole extra room of artefacts that we discovered completely by accident and we never did find the bakehouse and the Orangery. However, this added to the charm and the kids loved the feeling of exploration.

Best of all, entry is free and parking is free, making this Council-run property a thrifty alternative to visiting nearby National Trust offerings. You can take all the photos you like and you can enjoy it in your own time without tickets and time slots. It’s a must see if you have an interest in local or Civil War history.

In my case, I had found someone in my family tree who had lived and worked at Shaw House more than 100 years ago, so to see it like this gave me a sense of connection. The preservation of this building and the access for all is a real credit to the Council. It’s been kept as it should be. Well done to all those involved in making this such a lovely, family friendly place to visit.‬

‪A beautiful afternoon‬

‪This is a beautiful historical property. We went here on a Sunday afternoon and there was a sculpture show going on. The cafe is so sweet and the coffee very good. The gardens are beautiful. If you want a nice sojourn do make a visit!‬

‪Somewhat lacking‬
الأصدقاء • أغسطس 2021
‪Pleasant grounds, empty interiors. Went to an Antiques Fair held in the grounds. As the House was advertising a cafe thought it would be lovely to have a cup of tea and a slice of cake. Lots of staff behind counter in cafe but sadly no food other than crisps and bars of chocolate. This was at 1.30pm. Drinks served in cardboard cups. All the staff not doing very much except watching the mainly elderly clientele struggling to manage trays, drinks, crisps and chocolate whilst squeezing through narrow gaps between the tables. Far from impressed. More of a basic tuck shop than a cafe. Take your own food and drink if you go ...‬

Thank you for leaving us a review and visiting Shaw House and the Antiques Fair. We were over whelmed with visitor support for the Antiques Fair which meant we were unable to offer our usual welcome talk to visitors, in which we explain that the interior of the House is minimal because we host meetings and conferences during the week and so are unable to ‘dress’ the House in period furniture. However, for our Public Opening we are able to reveal some of the original Elizabethan architecture and provide historic interpretation for each room. We also have our new Dressed For Shaw exhibition in which many mannequins dressed in period costumes have been placed in the rooms to help tell Shaw House’s history, we are sorry if you missed this. As you correctly comment, we did sell out of freshly made cakes and sandwiches by 1.30pm. We are sorry for the lack of refreshments during your visit and will definitely look to rectify this for future events. I can assure you our staff worked tirelessly throughout the day to serve customers as efficiently as possible and I’m sorry your interpretation made you feel otherwise. Along with free entry to the House and Grounds, we are delighted to offer guests the space to enjoy their own food in the grounds and for guaranteed catering on the day of your visit, we offer fresh, locally made picnics which are bookable on our website.

‪A beautiful venue for a wedding‬
الأصدقاء • أغسطس 2021
‪We had our wedding ceremony at Shaw House this August. It really is a beautiful venue, both the ceremony room and grounds.
Our only disappointment was the lack of personal skills the registrar had towards myself (a very nervous bride) and some of our guests.‬

You can't argue with free entry. And the coffee shop had great ale!‬

‪Unable to view the house‬
يوليو 2021
‪Had hoped to see the house as we though school holidays had started but found it was the following week (or weekends). Website was not very clear.
Receptionist did allow us to visit the main hall and the historical time line.

Were going to use the café but due to issues it was exact change only and no cards could be used.
Not much in the grounds but the Elizabethan Manor House that had also been a school and was now a register office and wedding venue. It looked attractive and we will return if in the area again.‬

‪Lovely cultural experience and the staff were most welcoming‬
يوليو 2021
‪No formal entry charge but donations were welcomed. The interpretation boards were very well set out and contained some amusing elements. We learned a great deal about Shaw House and its various uses. It was a lovely experience and the chocolate cake was most enjoyable. Catering staff were very accommodating ‬

‪Wonderful period mansion‬
سبتمبر 2020
‪We only discovered this place because our daughter was getting married and the registry office is located here. The building is a superb Elizabethan mansion situated in lovely grounds on the outskirts of Newbury. Sadly, the interior is now closed due to Covid but the cafe and toilets are still available. Under normal circumstances there are public opening times for a series of exhibition rooms where you can learn the story of the house and view art exhibitions and the like. Picnics are allowed in the grounds and there is a large car park.‬

‪It’s a nice Elizabethan building of interest to locals perhaps, but lacking in substance I felt, it was a bit of a waste‬
أغسطس 2019
‪Being a member of the Historic Houses Association I was in the area and found out about the Elizabethan Shaw House. However, I then felt somewhat duped as it’s free entry anyway?! We parked up and it straight away felt very country council like. There’s an irony in that I find county councils implement planning rules for example, but they themselves often don’t seem to treat these buildings with due respect as allowing ugly rubbish bins, tarmac and eyesore style signs doing little to show the property in its best light. In the meantime I learned that further development is planned. Having said what I said I must admit that on the inside there has been made a definite effort.

We were welcomed and issued with a welcome leaflet. I see talk of introductory talks on TripAdvisor, but there’s no mention of these on the website and sadly it was not mentioned elsewhere. The King Charles Room is the most historic room with a fab anecdote to boot. There’re 8 main rooms or areas to see. All of which are empty rooms other than one room being a dedicated exhibition on the house and holding the only original piece of furniture which is a chest. The house is now mainly used as an event venue, but to me it felt more like an old school which indeed it was at some stage in one of its carnations. Some of this shown history is great reading.

A number of the rooms are interesting to see. There’re several helpful illuminating information boards for you to read. It was not always clear which rooms one was allowed to enter. The exhibition area is interesting with lots of good facts and anecdotes which helps bringing everything to life.

The grounds are spacious, but not particularly noteworthy. Seeing the South Front of the house through the main gates is the nicest view and whilst you are there go and take a look at the next door church with its graveyard. All very worthwhile for sure.

They talk of an Orangery, but I could not find this. Nor was it shown on the map where the amphitheatre was. On site within the house there’s a nice cafe. I would have loved to see the Bake House, but it’s off limits.‬

We appreciate your comments and always share them with our House Team. Shaw House is now used as a Conference venue and we offer a year round programme of events for all ages. As the house changed hands over the years, many of the contents and furniture were sold, for example auctions were held at Hamptons and Christies in 1905. As a result, no original collection from the House survives except for the item that you mention in the exhibition; a late 16th century iron chest. We do hope you continue to visit Shaw House and would suggest that you come along to the Open Days on 24 and 25 May 2020 when you will be able to access the entire House including the Bake House, which also coincides with the Open Air Sculpture exhibition on the Orangery Lawn.
