The gardens are superb and dogs are allowed in. Lots to see and do and friendly staff. Only problem - bit mean with the cram in a cream tea. Worth visiting for the loos though !!

I didnt know much about Ruskin before we visited Brantwood but he was a very interesting man well ahead of his time. The house has a warm friendly feeling and the gardens are worth seeing as well as the lake views.

Really nice house, not stately home. Gives a good insight into what Ruskin was about. Fantastic views from inside and out of the surrounding countryside.

We visited on a sunny Saturday, having got the boat over from Coniston. The ladies in the reception / shop were very friendly and helpful, giving us trails for the children to follow. The children's trails were good, involving answering questions rather than just looking for pictures or hidden bits of Lego. This meant we could have a good look... More

Wonderful 'extended farmhouse' type of place, with views over Coniston Water, a large restored garden, and 19th century curios aplenty. Musicians can even play his piano, if you ask the staff. YHA members can get in at a discount, if you show them your card at the ticket office. Good cafe on-site and frequent exhibitions etc. mean you can spend... More

Whilst in The Lakes, we took a morning trip on a launch, on Lake Coniston. Our Skipper stopped off 3/4 of the way around the lake at Brantwood, to pick up passengers, that is where we first discovered all about the location. On our last day, we decided to venture over to Brantwood, neither my Wife or me being that... More
