The arts and crafts movement of the late 19th and early 20th century birthed a revival of traditional handicrafts and a design revolution in architecture and ordinary domestic objects. Blackwell, originally built as a holiday home overlooking Windermere, is a perfect example of arts and crafts design.
You will discover within Blackwell a rich array of original decorative features including a beautiful inglenook fireplace, rare hessian wall-hangings, stained glass, carved wooden panelling and fine examples of William de Morgan tiles. The displays at Blackwood will take you on an historical journey through this most fascinating design era.
Situated in a stunning setting overlooking the lake, Blackwell is just a short car journey from Bowness-on-Windermere. Your entry includes the opportunity to join one of the volunteer house guides as they show you around and explain the history and style of the house and contents.
