Charleston Farmhouse

Charleston Farmhouse was the home and country meeting place for the writers, painters and intellectuals known as the Bloomsbury Group.

The interior, including walls, doors and furniture, was painted throughout by the artist owners Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell. Together with their collection of objects and art this forms a unique example of their decorative style.

Entry to the house is by guided tour, with special tours each Friday focusing on a particular aspect of the house each time.
