Little Holland House

40, Beeches Avenue, Carshalton

LIttle Holland House is the former home of artist, designer and craftsman Frank Dickinson (1874-1961). A unique interpretation of the English arts and crafts movement, the Grade II* interior was created entirely by Dickinson, inspired by the ideals of John Ruskin and William Morris and contains Dickinson’s paintings, hand-made furniture, furnishings, metalwork and carving, in a unique fusion of Art Nouveau and the English Arts and Crafts style. With very limited finances Dickinson designed and built the house himself between 1902-04 – the ultimate in DIY! Little Holland House provides wheelchair access to ground floor.

Open the first Sunday of each month. No booking required. Free admission, donations welcomed.
