Inspired by the work of this miniaturist, the work involved in creating the worlds most expensive dolls house and the TV series, the Miniaturist, I am giving some thought to how I might attract a Miniaturist to join us at Bancroft Manor. I love the idea of a shadowy figure leaving mysterious little bundles of careful crafted minatures on my doorstep.
Meanwhile, the old gardener’s cottage at Bancroft Manor has been calling me and, with the view of restoring it, I am moving from the Manor into this much loved old residence.
I am looking forward to refurbishing this space as a place to spend time enjoying the birdsong, savouring the cheerful song of the creek as it rambles over weathered granite boulders and to scattering fresh seeds in the old wild garden that surrounds the house.
There is plenty of space on the estate! Perhaps you will come, share your special creative perspective and help breathe life into the place.
