Blackwell The Arts & Crafts House

A very modern historic house.

One of the best examples of the Arts & Crafts Movement in the world. You are invited into this stunning house to relax and soak up the atmosphere and magnificent lake views. See original features, furniture and objects by leading Arts & Crafts designers, learn about the people who made Blackwell their home and meet the Holt family through digital augmented realities. 

Spend as long as you like enjoying the house and leave time to treat yourself to lunch or cake in the Tea Room and to browse the contemporary craft shop, which showcases the very best of British craftsmanship. Parking is free – so there is no need to rush.
