East of Lake, Coniston LA21 8AD, UK – 015394 41396

A really beautiful arts and crafts style house on the shore of Coniston Water. Former home of the artist and social reformer, John Ruskin. Road access is a bit tight down a single track lane so why not come over by lake steamer from Coniston? You could even use the beautiful Gondola, a real steam powered vessel. Brantwood has it's own jetty where the lake steamers will stop on request.

John Ruskin was here! Interesting story and memorabilia from the life of a less-recognised polymath. Large garden for strolling around, pleasant tearoom, accommodation available and ferry transport across the lake to / from Coniston. (See timetable!)

Brilliant location. A little off the beaten track so less crowded than other parts of the Lake District

Lovely place to visit for views & walks. Cafe does nice food to
