Brantwood was the home of John Ruskin. The house is on the eastern shores of Coniston Water and can be visited by boat or by road. There is a cafe with a fantastic view of the Coniston fells near the house. The gardens are also very impressive, with one connecting the house to the lake and another on the steep slopes above the house. There is also a good book shop in the house.
