Set in beautiful countryside, a flower smothered house with ample parking. Outside is a small lakesprinkled with lillies and if you look you will see a bronze of a woman lying by the lake with her hair streaming down. Walk around the lake and gardens for a really peaceful experience. Inside the house are rooms where the Bloomsbury Set lived and made everything themselves, from the mosaics in the garden to the painted furniture and fabrics inside the house. Charleston is packed with history and intrique which the volunteer guides are happy to talk about as you roam from room to room. Theres a tea room as well, but the best part for me is the souvenier shop! There you can buy beautiful pottery, felt hats, scarves, jewellery, books and all manner of gorgeous things all in the style of the time and remeniscent of the Omega Workshops a long gone shop in Chelsea started by Roger Fry in order to bring their art to the wider public. I have been to Charleston many, many times and never tire of it.
