Having visited the Galleries some years ago, we returned wondering if our good memories would be justified. No problem, a large range of locally-produced furniture, ceramics, glass, jewellery and paintings kept us occupied for most of a wet May morning. A small coffee shop complemented the excellent displays and we had amost enjoyable conversation with the sales lady (who like... More

We are regular visitors to this part of the Lakes. We always call in because the selection of art is very much to our liking. There is a great mix - from photographs to jewellery, ceramics to oils - literally something for everyone. The coffee is great - good size cups; the toasties and cakes fab. Always a real treat...

Thornthwaite is a pretty village, just a couple of miles from Keswick. This gallery has an eclectic mix of good quality artwork and gifts and is well worth a visit if you are looking for something a bit different.

We stumbled across Thornthwaite Gallery simply because we chose a more gentle but longer route down from Barf. It was therefore a pleasant surprise to find this place, packed full of interesting pieces, including paintings, jewellery, bronze sculpture and beautiful wood carving. It’s well worth a visit to see a gallery with so many quality objects.

We stopped at the galleries during our lake walk around Bass. Full of interesting wooden ornaments, hand made jewellery, unique pictures of the mountains and lakes and more! Worth having a cream tea in the tea shop too - great value and delicious. Will definately be going back

Excellent cottages attached to the galleries; we used two of them for 8 adults and a baby and had a fantastic time, even when it rained.

This gallery is well worth a visit, fantastic selection of arts and crafts, something for all price ranges and all high quality. Nice tearoom serving cakes and toasted sandwiches. Very friendly staff. We will definately make this one if our regular stops.

This excellent crafts gallery is a really great place for a high-quality souvenir from the Lake District. It isn't huge, but they pack in masses of stuff, including jewellery, ceramics and paintings, and they looked to have something for most budgets - we bought a beautiful vase for about £30, and would have bought more if we'd thought we could...
