Visitor comments

  • "This is a rare find. A stunning house, with a load of history, previously occupied by the local and famous artist, and filled with his original works. It's a lively way to wander around and read about his life, see his work, and get inspired. Still with the original furniture in places, this is a lovely spot to be quiet, take in the knowledge and relax. Very special." - Trip Advisor
  • "Cute museum full of many paintings. Lovely set out in the original home and with some original belongings and furniture. Very cool. My nine year old who is a budding artist loved it too." - Trip Advisor
  • "Hidden away in the back streets of this beautiful village is this artists house and as an aspiring painter really enjoyed this lovely house which includes a modest little café in its courtyard. Seeing the house as it would have been lived in was an unexpected bonus as I had only expected to see his work. The gallery is well presented and gives you a true feeling of the man, his life and his work which was inspired by this wonderful location." - Trip Advisor
