Charleston Farm House – Home to the Bloomsbury set

Home to artist Vanessa Bell (the sister of Virginia Woolf) and her husband Clive Bell, members of the Bloomsbury set, it was started as their country retreat to entertain artists, writers and intellectuals, later becoming their full time home. The house it self became an extension of their art, becoming a work of art itself.

    I’ve always wanted to go to South Carolina, but have never been. Everything looks so beautiful there, rich colors, the history, you’re making me want to fly there now!

    ive been there my self its a really loverly place, and its stunning in summer/autumn. really recommend it to anyone who loves art and the history of art. im an art student myself, i went there with no expectations to be ‘wowd’ however i surprisingly learnt a lot, and its obvious the people working there really enjoy telling the stories and know what they’re talking about.
