The house is well worth a visit as its a tribute to the artist who lived most of his life here, from his paintings, sketches and personal artefacts the house and contents are maintained to a very high standard and the tour guide makes it even better. If you are in the area it's definitely worth the visit.

We arrived on what we discovered was "Free Wednesday" to find a very packed car park. However it was very well stewarded and we had no problem parking.

A unique memorial to the life and work of an amazing painter. The house and garden are breathtaking. The ham sandwich in the café was delicious. The temporary exhibition in the gallery when we were there was of international standard.
