Although the house was decked out in arts and Craft, the blandness just shone through. The oil paintings going way back are priceless and depict a story unto themselves. Really worth a visit if you enjoy the past century.

Wander through the rooms to see many paintings and explore the unique garden. I especially enjoyed seeing the variety of flowers and the unique garden design with rockery, small paths, borders and vegetable plots.

Hi there. There is disabled access from the side lane but once you enter the building I am afraid that the facilities are in my opinion, not up to a satisfactory standard. There is no designated disabled parking. The garden... More
