  • Really interesting and well presented property. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
  • Very curious attraction/museum. The place where JM Barrie, the writer of Peter Pan was born and raised for many years. You can see it as it’s very well conserved, with its garden. Actually there’s two houses, but the real one was the one on the left. You can see some hand written first editions from his works, although they weren’t written here but somewhere else in England. Most impressive, the clothes worn at the first play of Peter Pan. Small shop to buy souvenirs
