Artist's Description

The charming village of Selworthy lies in the heart of the Holnicote estate in a magnificent setting on the northern fringes of Exmoor.

The estate of 12,443 acres is the National Trust’s main property on Exmoor.

At first glance the cream-washed stone, thatched cottages seem typical of many ancient settlements in this area.

However, Selworthy was rebuilt in 1828 by Sir Thomas Acland of Killerton.

Sir Thomas was a philanthropist and designed the ‘model’ village himself to provide housing for the aged and infirm of the Holnicote estate.

He used traditional designs and materials to create a deliberately old-fashioned village.
