Grace Higgens joined the unconventional Bell household aged just 15 and, for the next fifty years, propped up the Bloomsbury Set in London and at Charleston. Vanessa Bell couldnt live without her housekeepers cooking or her regular posing as an artist's model. Virginia Woolf tried to poach her for her baking. Graces candid diaries paint a picture of bohemia rather different to the official narrative. Tessa Boase, author of The Housekeepers Tale, takes us behind the scenes of this most unusual farmhouse.
