“A little gem in Bowness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

If you are interested in Arts & Crafts, or just enjoy beautiful design and its interesting history then you will not be disappointed by this country house. Well worth finding.

“I want to live here!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

Gem of a place, beautiful and inspiring house that has been wonderfully restored. Very interesting history, such a shame that photography is not allowed inside, that was my only disappointment that I could not take home every vision to re-visit another day, not quite the same in the official publication

“Interesting but brief”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

This was a very interesting house and well worth a look HOWEVER touring the entire house only took about 40 mins and the garden consists of nothing more than 2 lawns. The gift shop sells high quality products and this is reflected in the prices! We didn't visit the coffee shop as the menu is not very 'child-friendly' Blackwell is an interesting and pleasant place to visit but don't expect it to take anymore than an hour.

“A Great Arts and Crafts Experience!!! Loved it!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

This is such a fabulous house!! Many rooms were typically Arts and Crafts, but then there's this white room which defies a lot of the concepts, but is an interesting twist. As an extra perk, there is also a lovely Crafts exhibit in the entrance area, as well as both contempory and traditional craft pieces throughout the house..

“So much to see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

Fascinating display of book covers from the early 20th century, set amongst the restored and beautifully presented rooms. Don't miss out on lunch or a snack in the cafe.
