Mary Arden’s Farm

Mary Arden's Farm is located three miles northwest of the town centre in the village of Wilmcote, and is a well furnished example of an Elizabethan farmhouse, with informative guides providing details of family life and traditions.  
See the Elizabethan way of life and interact with the daily domestic routine of a working farm, and watch the farmer's wife prepare and cook her home grown food in the farmhouse kitchen. Follow the nature trail and track down the Long Horn cattle and other rare breeds including Cotswold sheep and Gloucester Old Spot pigs.
Mary Arden was Shakespeare's mother and the only unmarried daughter of her father, Robert, at the time of his death in 1556. Unusually for the period, Mary inherited the house and land, becoming one of the areas most eligible women.  
Facilities include a gift shop, parking and toilets.
