Historically, this impressive home was once owned by William Collingwood, secretary to John Ruskin and a renowned artist in his own right. Furthermore it is believed that Arthur Ransome, a close friend of Collingwood and author of the world famous Swallows & Amazons, spent much time at Lanehead and taught Collingwood's grandchildren to sail on the lake.
Culture lovers will find solace in the nearby Brantwood House, the historic home of John Ruskin which now encompasses a museum, delightful gardens and vibrant arts scene. Lanehead’s setting alone should be enough to inspire any visitor and allow creative juices to flow, whether by painting the surrounding landscape as Collingwood did many years ago, or enjoying blissful yoga classes on the front lawn.
