Beautiful pottery,dozens of Art work by locals,'different'jewllryand woodwork to... More

Spent a delightful couple of hours here. Toasted sandwiches to start & tea & cake later. Beautiful arts & craft items for sale & the owners were friendly & welcoming. Nothing to dislike - nothing tatty. Really worth visiting for some genuine hand made gifts.

in one large room it houses interesting pottery, wood carvings and ornaments, jewelry, pictures, photos, etc etc. Also has a nice tea shop and they serve nice warmed scones with proper clotted cream for a lovely cream tea. Its a 10minute drive from Keswick. Not much else there though.

The gallery is well worth a visit if you are in the area. There is a range of beautiful work ranging from paintings, furniture, jewellery, glass to pottery, cards and a lovely tea room serving outstanding homemade cakes - I can highly recommend the Victoria sponge! It is well worth the trip and you may even find that thing that... More

Stopped off at this beautiful little craft gallery and tea room. A must for a tea and tasty cake or scone. Wonderful crafts for that special gift. Would highly recommend.

We chanced on this gallery just outside Keswick. It really is more than just a gallery as it has a very good tea room with tasteful food at a reasonable price. The contents of the gallery are varied but demonstrate the best work of Cumbrian artists. The quality of the works is outstanding in furniture, paintings and small sculptures. If... More

Was recommended by our b&b owner, he wasn't wrong. Various artwork, pottery and jewellery. Mostly the prices were reasonable. Stopped for a cake and drink all very nice. Biggish car park at the end of a very narrow street.

This Galley / cafe offers a small menu consisting of toasted sandwiches, toasted tea cakes, scones and home made cakes nice for a stop off quick bite as you get to look around the galley too. Wouldn't suggest you go out of your way but if your passing worth popping in.
