Arts and Crafts Group Visit to Blackwell House

Thanks to the Arts and Crafts group who organised our excursion to the Lake District on a day when we left the grey skies and rain of Galloway and drove into the blue skies of Cumbria.

Blackwell Arts and Crafts House, Cumbria

Our destination was Blackwell House, the Arts and Crafts house designed by Mackay Hugh Baillie Scott for Sir Edward Holt, a leading Manchester businessman and local politician, as a holiday home where to some extent the rigid formalities of Victorian life could be relaxed.

We enjoyed both the beautiful location of this holiday home and the wonderful views.  The interior delighted us with classical arts and crafts designed rooms, artefacts and in addition a couple of art and ceramic exhibitions.
