Blackwell is a rare architectural gem, offering a perfectly preserved snapshot of early 20th-century living.

Designed by noted architect M.H. Baillie Scott, this Grade I listed building is one of the UK’s finest examples of the Arts & Crafts Movement, a practice that embraces traditional craftsmanship in an age of increasing mechanisation and mass production. Almost all of Blackwell’s original features survive, along with immaculate furniture and beautiful decorative flourishes.

With a peaceful, tranquil setting and tremendous views over Windermere and the Coniston Fells, the house never fails to inspire.
