Brantwood House & Gardens

John Ruskin’s former home, set in stunning location overlooking Coniston Water, gives a fascinating insight into the life of a man who was the leading English art critic of the Victorian era, as well as a prominent social thinker and philanthropist.

Brantwood’s character has been successfully retained and it is treasure trove of Ruskin’s paintings and personal possessions.

The 250 acre woodland estate, with 8 unique gardens, has fantastic views and some interesting plant collections. During the summer holidays there are guided garden walks on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, included in the entry price.
