“A fascinating place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

This is a lovely place to visit to get away from the crowds in Bowness.
Spectacular views from the terrace.
Beautifully presented inside and our particular favourite was the white drawing room.
The Hall is an amazing space as well.
Visit the tea room as well and then when you are refreshed you can go and look again.
Quite pricey but well worth it.

“Beautiful house set in Gorgeous Grounds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

We visited on a gorgeous day and admired the views of the lake from the house too. The house was an amazing example of the Arts & Crafts movement.

“A little gem in Bowness”

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.
