The tour of the hose was perhaps the highlight, and amazing donated complete collection of a lifetimes worth of travel, art, and culture are on view as a guided tour. The well informed staff are lovely, the same with the contemporary and superb gallery which would not be out of place in one of the cities here.
We visited this house recently and were amazed. The house was left to the nation by Derek Hill whilst he was still alive. It’s a treasure trove of works of art, definitely worth seeing. Derek was obviously an avid collector with eclectic taste… And the guided tour by Jean was wonderful.
Definitely go for the guided tour of the House (Jean, our guide, was a font of knowledge as she knew Derek Hill). The primitive art from Tory is wonderful, but the whole house is rammed with interesting works from far and wide. The idea that they had a ceilidh in the kitchen with Yehudi Menuhin playing along on the fiddle was magic.
