Tea Rooms, Selworthy, Somerset

Holnicote Estate, Selworthy, Somerset

Selworthy was rebuilt as a model village, to provide housing for the aged and infirm of the Holnicote estate, in 1828 by Sir Thomas Acland, in a similar style to Blaise Hamlet, Bristol, which had been built a few years earlier. One of the cottages, known as Periwinkle Cottage, is now an Award Winning Tea Rooms. Many of the other cottages, whose walls are painted with limewash that has been tinted creamy yellow with ochre, some of which are now rented out, are still thatched and have listed building status. The village and the surrounding Holnicote estate was given to the National Trust in 1944 by Sir Richard Acland, having been passed down through the Acland family for nearly 200 years. Few of the buildings preceding 1828 survive but those that do include the church, the tithe barn and Tithe Barn Cottage. (Wikipedia)
