Blackwell Arts and Crafts house in Bowness
23 Sep 2011
Blackwell Arts and Crafts house in Bowness on Windermere in the English Lake District was built between 1898 and 1900 and was owned by Sir Edward Holt a wealthy Manchester brewery owner as his holiday home. It is architecturally very important and has spectacular views across Windermere towards the Coniston Fells. It has half landings and split level surfaces and was designed by M H Baillie Scott.



The house was restored in 2001 and it has been carefully furnished with arts and crafts furniture with many pieces from Morris and Co and Voysey and Gimson. Visitors to Blackwell can wander around the house and see the original decorative features including rare and fragile hessian wall hangings in the dining room and spectacular plaster work, stained glass and carved wooden panelling. It also boasts stunning inglenook fireplaces.
