Welcome to Little Holland House!

Little Holland House

Take a step back in time and visit the former home of artist, designer and craftsman Frank Dickinson (1874-1961). A unique interpretation of the English arts and crafts movement, the Grade II* interior was created entirely by Dickinson, inspired by the ideals of John Ruskin and William Morris and contains Dickinson's paintings, hand-made furniture, furnishings, metalwork and carving, in a unique fusion of Art Nouveau and the English Arts and Crafts style. With very limited finances Dickinson designed and built the house himself between 1902-04 - the ultimate in DIY!

Little Holland House provides wheelchair access to ground floor.

Due to the fragile nature of the interior we unable to welcome children’s buggies at the moment.
