Richard Jefferies House and Museum


IHG rewards club

Second Wednesday of the Month 10am - 4pm

The Richard Jefferies Museum is housed opposite Holiday Inn Swindon in the farmhouse at Coate, where Richard Jefferies was born in 1848.

Situated within the lovely surroundings of Coate Water, the Museum features some of the memento's of Richard Jefferies, one of England's most individual writers on nature and the countryside.

Jefferies early years were spent wandering around the farmlands, exploring the nearby streams that fed the canals and swimming in what is now Coate Water. His early life is recorded in a series of novels, including 'Bevis - The Story of a Boy'.

The Museum includes first editions of many of Richard Jefferies writings, the manuscript of 'Wood Magic' and family photographs and other items. Parts of the building have been restored to create the atmosphere of a mid to late 19th Century farmhouse.
