About 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!

Enjoy a special afternoon or evening visit to this unique house accompanied by a guide. A chance to make yourself at home and spend time in the extraordinary decorative interior of the house. Discover some of the sources that inspired Frank Dickinson’s creativity.

Little Holland House provides wheelchair access to ground floor. Due to the fragile nature of the interior we unable to welcome children’s buggies.
