  • Ruskin’s Brantwood home: full of amazing art, decors and designer victorian furniture, with breathtaking lake views, wonderful cafe and garden walks.
  • Nice country house on the banks of Lake Coniston. Great views across the lake and a lovely place for a wedding ceremony.
  • I ended up being chased by a bull on the estate trail, so cannot recommend. The house is small, yet interesting. But I think that the potentially lethal bullls on the estate walk ruins it.
  • Excellent museum, if a little pricey but not enough to detract from the score. It was refreshing to see a Ruskin museum almost devoid of references to the Pre-Raphaelites. It really allows you to get a sense of the man, his interests and motivations. The garden is excellent, and the rooms full of artefacts and information. One could conceivably spend a long time just browsing here. It is also a pleasure to get the boat across in order to view the house and its surroundings from the water and thereby set the scene for your visit.
  • Lovely place. Nice gardens. Beautiful views across the lake.
