1 Rectory Street, Epworth, Doncaster, DN9 1HX. Tel 01427 872268

John and Charles Wesley were brought up in the handsome rectory, which was built in 1709 and restored in 1957. This Grade I listed Queen Anne building is maintained by the World Methodist Council as 'The Home of the Wesleys' rather than as a museum. It displays items which belonged to John and Charles Wesley and their parents Samuel and Susanna. Some of the rooms are set out with period furniture much as the family would have known. Also in the house are paintings and prints concerning the lives and times of the Wesley family and commemorative china etc. Parties, catering and accommodation by prior arrangement.
