The social life of the Group revolved around the various houses of the members and their friends, and holidays together in France, Italy and Greece.
The Bells, Woolfs and Lytton Strachey all had country houses, and they also enjoyed the hospitality of wealthy patrons including Lady Ottoline Morrell who frequently entertained
them at her Garsington home.
These house visits helped to widen the circle of acquaintance and brought in people such as the dancers Frederick Ashton and Lydia Lopokova, the star of the fashionable Ballet Russe.
