  • This was a return visit. Why go back? There is quite a lot to take in about Ruskin the man and what he achieved. He was a lot more than an art critic! You can get that from books and the internet, but...  more »

  • The aim today was making our way to Brantwood for lunch. Sadly, as far as the 4 off us are concerned the ambience and historical nature of the eating facility has been lost. Gone are the old farming a...  more »

  • 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.
