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.
