Churchill took up painting in the middle of his life. While his works have a charming primitive aspect, there is also strong evidence of sophisticated artist in the works. Many are in the house, but the place to see a large number is down the hill in his studio.
There is also a popular restaurant on site as well as a small shop divided between Churchill items and gardening inspirations.
The tickets are times and the house is a bit of a walk from the car park. See the website for wheelchair access information.
This is such a wonderful home in which I would have loved to live - a human scale house with comfort and spectacular views across the downs.
Thankfully, entry is time controlled, but the rooms are small and it did get crowded during our visit (half term in June). The exhibitions both in the house and studio gave a Churchill a personality - what a great person to spend sometime with (even if it was only his home).
Beautifully kept by the National Trust, with good, local food available.
