Young girl visiting Blackwell House


Blackwell is FREE for children up to the age of 16. We run a lively programme of family and children's activities during school and summer holidays, and there are various daily activities for kids. Children can get involved in the history of house with period costumes to dress up in, or complete our Children's Trail activity sheet as they explore.

A children's menu is available in our welcoming tea room, as well as a menu of freshly prepared meals and home bakes which can be enjoyed both inside or on the terrace overlooking the lake.

Watch our animation video which was the result of the 'Reanimating the Past' family workshop at the Museum of Lakeland Life & Industry. Families discovered how animation can bring summer holidays from the past to life.
