    Coniston Institute

    Grizedale Arts’ administrative office is situated at the Coniston Institute in the village of Coniston. The Institute was reinvigorated it the late 19th century by the influential John Ruskin as a ‘Mechanics Institute' aimed at educating the local community. Following a period of neglect, we have worked with the village to regenerate the building and increase its use. The Honest Shop is housed there, a Grizedale initiative that sells local produce and crafts in an unstaffed retail space within the Institute.

  • Lawson Park

    Lawson Park

    Lawson Park has been our headquarters and residency base since 2009. A traditional farmhouse and outbuildings dating back to the 14th century, it is situated in an elevated position overlooking Coniston Water, between Grizedale Forest and Brantwood (John Ruskin’s former estate) in the English Lake District. On site there is a warden’s cottage (where director Adam Sutherland lives) and spacious accommodation for 4-6 visitors, surrounded by extensive gardens.

  • Low Parkamoor

    Low Parkamoor

    Low Parkamoor is an isolated, off-grid farmhouse an hour’s walk from our HQ Lawson Park, its ’sister’ farm. Managed as visitor accommodation by local farmers John Atkinson & Maria Benjamin, we are able to offer some periods of time at the house for those seeking a more secluded experience than Lawson Park offers.
