Learning

An important part of the Mrs Smith’s Cottage project is sharing what we know about the life of Mrs Smith with learners of all ages. Providing opportunities for people to develop new skills and explore different ways of living, from the late 1800s to the modern world.

Families

Exploring Mrs Smith’s Cottage provides learning opportunities for every member of a family group, encouraging conversations and sharing memories. When you arrive at the cottage you can pick up our simple activity bookmarks to complete as you visit the cottage. Alongside this we have a small bookshelf with a variety of stories for all the family, and picnic blankets so you can enjoy your picnic in our gardens.

Schools
