Some of the house interior seems quite Tudor in style but the house was only completed in 1900 and it's one of the most important icons of arts and crafts architecture. Inside there is beautiful panelling & plasterwork, exquisite stained glass, textiles and carvings. It is a homely house with a lovely feel and also strikingly modern in places.
No photos were permitted inside so I bought the guide book and some postcards.
I love the arts and crafts ethos, the ability to achieve beauty through simplicity and practicality, very much inline with the make do and mend principles of todays crafters.
Another interesting piece of architecture, although currently being restored, is Lowther Castle. It wasn't too far from the hotel I stayed in so went past it a few times and it looked rather impressive in the low evening sun.
