The Arts & Crafts movement was a direct response to the Industrial Revolution and championed the skills and vision of craftsmen and women.

When entering Blackwell you will be seeing the very details that the Holt family would have seen over 100 years ago; you will look out over the lawns and Lake to the same magnificent views of the Coniston Fells and experience the tranquil atmosphere that the family would have loved.

Blackwell is one of Britain’s finest houses from the turn of the last century. Designed by M H Baillie Scott, as a holiday retreat for Sir Edward Holt, a wealthy Manchester brewery owner Blackwell survives in a truly remarkable state of preservation retaining many original decorative features. The period rooms are carefully furnished with the blend of Arts and Crafts furniture and early country-made pieces advocated by Baillie Scott, containing furniture and objects by many of the leading Arts & Crafts designers and studios – furniture by Morris & Co and Voysey, metalwork by W A S Benson and ceramics by Ruskin Pottery and William de Morgan.

Visitors are encouraged to sit and soak up the atmosphere in Blackwell’s fireplace inglenooks and are free to enjoy the house as it was originally intended, without roped-off areas. The inviting window and garden seats offer stunning views of the surrounding Lakeland scenery.
