Art attractions in the Lake Districtlocal art attractions that can be enjoyed whatever the weather

Hawksmoor Lakeland Guest House is situated in one of the UK's most beautiful areas, the Lake District. Famous for its natural magnificence, Windermere is a favourite with cyclists, walkers and anyone who loves nature. Sometimes, though, the weather has other ideas about letting us explore the great outdoors - so we've compiled a few local art attractions that can be enjoyed whatever the weather.

Blackwell, The Arts & Crafts House, Bowness


Blackwell, The Arts & Crafts House was originally designed as a holiday home by architect Baillie Scott. It is a wonderful feat of architecture and is open to the public to explore. It also hosts arts exhibitions and events.

The World of Beatrix Potter, Bowness


We all read The Tale of Peter Rabbit and The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck as children and this attraction quite literally brings Beatrix Potter's characters to life. Perfect for adults and children alike, it makes a great day out for the whole family.

Heaton Cooper Studio, Grasmere


This art studio has a gallery, bookshop and art shop, and is named after William Heaton Cooper, a celebrated Lake District artist. The studio is a must if you'd like to experience Lake District art up-close.

Dove Cottage and the Wordsworth Museum, Grasmere


A must-visit for poets, poetry readers and lovers of history, Dove Cottage was home to one of England's most famous and best-loved poets, William Wordsworth. Explore the cottage, garden and museum for a glimpse into the life of this literary master.

Brantwood, Coniston


Brantwood was home to John Ruskin, a writer and artist who completed thousands of watercolours and drawings over his lifetime. Brantwood house, garden and museum are together considered one of the most beautiful places in the Lake District - and we agree!
