DESCRIPTION

Dutch house is a new attraction, located at Mill Green Farm on the Brandsby Road.

Enjoy nature and art in our ecological sculpture garden and learn more about sustainable gardening and attracting wildlife to your own garden. The garden contains a collection of native trees and shrubs, a wild flower meadow, herbacious/herb borders, a kids nature zone and a changing display of sculptures. The garden has recently been landscaped and its development is ongoing.

In our light and inspiring art studio we offer a variety of workshops, courses and lectures, all related to art and nature. It is also an ideal space for creative and adventurous kids activities during school Holidays or for childrens parties.

In our cosy cafe we serve a fine selection of teas, coffees, light lunches, home-made cakes and Dutch specialities. A fantastic sunny courtyard offers relaxing outside seating. In the arts & crafts shop (inside our cafe) you can browse and buy unique art and gifts from local artists.

We are open all year round. Tuesday-Sunday 10am to 5pm (including Bank Holiday Mondays).

We have set up a centre for art, design & nature, a place to stimulate your senses, to make people aware of all the artistic beauty that nature has to offer and of the influence nature has on art.

It's a fact

Sqdn Ldr. Jack Currie was a famous WW2 bomber pilot who lived in our area. Some time after leaving the RAF he got a job as an instructor with the Home Office Defence School situated at Hawk Hills, Easingwold. During these post war years he decided to write his memoirs of his wartime experience as a pilot of a Lancaster Bomber. This book had the title of \"Lancaster Target\" which became very popular and sold in the thousands. He wrote this book whilst visiting the George Hotel in Easingwold in the evening whilst enjoying a pint. Sadly he died much too soon and is now at laid at rest in Easingwold church cemetery where one can view his unusual gravestone which mentions the fact that he was a famous wartime pilot and author. His funeral service was attended by hundreds of people, including the members of the BBC who produced a film of him being interviewed in respect of his wartime period when he was stationed at Wickenby in Lincolnshire.
