  • A smashing place, where you learn all about the people, who lived and stayed there, by a wonderful tour guide! You would not be able to read or her so much without the guides!!! I love this place! And in the new building you can eat good, healthy and tasty food. Even a long journey is worth while!!!
  • Beautiful garden and amazingly preserved artists home and studio. The paintings and decor of the house feels almost contemporary, as if some young art students have just moved out. It is not necessary to know of the bloomsbury set to enjoy this place.
