Facilities & access

The cottage is not wheelchair accessible.

We have an ongoing programme of accessible content development. Detailed accessibility guides for the most visited Trust places are available on our Accessibility pages as well as links to useful resources.

We’d love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what’s good and where we need to do better.

Parking is available on the street in front of the cottage. There are also disabled spaces in the nearby car park, 100m from the cottage.

Accessible toilet

Outside, we have the original Wendy house and a small garden for children to play in – how many animals can you spot on the Peter Pan statue?

Guided tour

There’s on-street parking or a public car park, 100m along the road. 

Upon arrival, we’ll offer you an introduction to J M Barrie and his home. We then invite you to take a self-guided tour – each room has information sheets but please feel free to ask us any questions about the property or the man. 

Watch out for the hidden gems and the secret doodles on the settle!

Find out about the story behind Barrie’s christening shawl and the origins of the name Wendy.

Books by J M Barrie and other authors are for sale in the small shop.
