In the novel, we are told that Bleak House is in Hertfordshire, but the model for Jarndyce’s home, with its eccentric collection of mangles, was Dickens’s summer retreat, named Fort House Broadstairs in Kent. Since renamed Bleak House it was a museum for many years until it was closed by a new owner in 2005.“It was one of those delightfully irregular houses where you go up and down steps out of one room into another, and where you come upon more rooms when you think you have seen all there are, and where there is a bountiful provision of little halls and passages, and where you find still older cottage-rooms in unexpected places with lattice windows and green growth pressing through them.”
