No booking required. Free admission, donations welcomed

Visit the former home of Frank R. Dickinson (1874-1961), artist, designer and craftsman, who built his house in the English Arts and Crafts style between 1902-4, following the teachings and philosophies of William Morris and John Ruskin.  The result is a unique blend of traditional and Art Nouveau, which has featured in several recent television series on architectural history.  Inside the Grade II* listed interior are his hand-made furniture, paintings, interior decoration, carvings and metalwork, which still inspire visitors today. With very limited financial resources Dickinson actually built the house and its furniture himself – the ultimate in D.I.Y.!

Little Holland House provides wheelchair access to ground floor. (Stepped access only)
