THE GRAYTHWAITE ESTATE

 

The opportunity to shoot anything in the Lakes is a thrill, but to be able to collaborate with the Graythwaite Estate with its situation, its scale, and its buildings, was particularly exciting.

The Estate covers a huge area of prime Lakeland countryside running up the west side of Windermere, comprising a mixture of characterful period buildings ranging from the grand Graythwaite Hall to the functional Saw Mill, to the beautiful Silverholme Manor House, and many cottages and farmhouses in between. It was Silverholme - a Georgian manor house and exclusive wedding venue - and the recently renovated Holmewell House that I visited the estate to capture. As well as a set of comprehensive images which would accurately communicate to prospective guests what they should expect when booking and staying on the Graythwaite estate, I shot a selection of images that speak to the character and design of these wonderful homes, and the tones and light that make them so unique.
