Whenever I'm in the area we always go to Blackwell Arts and Crafts house for lunch. Never disappointed, such a lovely place to eat. The house is well worth looking round, but usually it's just for lunch or coffee.

This interesting property has many fine details on wall paneling, furniture ,fireplaces and fabrics. It's a lovely place to spend a morning wandering round looking for fine detail crafted with such care or just sitting in one of the many window seats admiring the view

We loved this beautifully presented Arts and Crafts house just outside Bowness. Every effort has been made to focus on the design of the building and the right furnishings to complement it. Some have said that the rooms feel a bit sparse as a result,...More
