Blackwell Arts and Crafts House, Bowness-on-Windermere

An exceptional example of the architectural movement, Blackwell Arts and Crafts House conserves the fluidity and dynamism of the Arts and Crafts style. Almost unaltered since it was built at the turn of the century, every piece of furniture and decoration in the interior of the house belongs to Arts and Crafts. Walk on your own through the rooms of the house to get a feel for the floor plan and style. Enjoy the views from the upper floors of the gardens and surrounding countryside. In addition to the house itself, explore the exhibitions on the lower floors. After looking at the architecture, take a look in the gift ship for an interesting souvenir and have a hand-made snack from the tearoom.

  • This is a superlative Arts and Crafts house with period furniture and interpretive detail. It has well stocked shop, which includes jewellery and craft objects of the highest quality.
  • Third time visiting. Beautiful house, truly makes me feel comfortable and relaxed like nowhere else, and if you haven't heard of the arts and crafts movement this is the place to start.
  • A fantastic example of an Arts and Crafts house with stunning views over Windermere. In the summer you can sit outside looking over the lake. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
  • House beautiful. Views stunning. Nice food in cafe.
  • A stunning place to visit with a fabulous cafe. Not to be missed.
