This beautiful house situated just outside Lewis (near Brighton) is a wonderful place in the country where writers, painters and intellectuals known as the Bloomsbury group met throughout the 1900's-1980's to do what they did best. I visited this house yesterday and was blown away at it's loveliness. Gardens with colorful flowers, a large pond and the house it's self is a place worth a visit.
We took a tour through the house and saw magnificent paintings, needle work and a life for the Bloomsbury group which would have been rather taboo for the time.
You can visit Charleston between March-October and they also hold various creative workshops and events throughout the year.
Sadly I wasn't allowed to photograph inside the house but I have taken a collection of wonderful pictures to sum up my experience around the grounds and garden.
Have you been?
What did you think?
