A new Dyke Road Arts house, The Holistic House . My first note was “Wow!” This house needs to be seen. Set rather further out from the main trail than the map would suggest, the whole house has a spiritual feeling and it’s worth the walk.
The sculpture lawn drifts into surrounding woodland and is peopled with willowy figures by Ginger Gilmor. Then into the sitting room, a quiet haven for Hellen Morris-Clarke’s jewellery and live music. The hall hosts Gill Orsman’s photography, and bright embellished fantasy paintings by Claire Johnson.
To finish, a smart kitchen complete with waitresses serves afternoon tea. [One small jam and cream scone and tea is £3. A thought … perhaps better not to serve the jam and cream on top of the paper napkin, though]
