  • So evocative. What must life have really been like for the pansexual trustafarian conchie occupants of this house? And I do hope the nearly ten million being spent won't change the slightly dilapidated atmosphere. The garden was looking stunning on the day we visited and Ellie was a most engaging guide.
  • Out of the way, but deserves a few minutes of your time.
  • You have to visit. This is an internationally significant and beautifully breathtaking place.

  • A must visit for any Bloombury Group fans. We were lucky and visited on a gloriously sunny day. Its not a big place, but book one of the tours and enjoy a quick meal there too.
