Located only five minutes away from Linthwaite, Blackwell is one of England's most important surviving houses from the turn of the 20th century. Designed by M. H. Baillie Scott between 1897 and 1900, it is a superb example of Arts and Crafts movement architecture.
It occupies a stunning position overlooking Windermere in the English Lake District and has recently been restored and opened to the public as a gallery for craft and applied arts.

Since its establishment in 1993, The Lake District Tourism & Conservation Partnership has worked to bring together conservation organisations and businesses engaged in tourism.
The aim of The Partnership is to promote sustainable tourism by raising much needed funds for vital conservation projects in the Lake District. Linthwaite recognises the importance of contributing to the surrounding landscape and supports the work through contributions - the money raised goes directly to look after the red squirrels.
