Details

The Gallery at Yew Tree Barn is the perfect place to discover an exciting range of traditional and modern work. Set within the original beams and whitewashed walls, our relaxed gallery showcases contemporary art and design-led crafts, including jewellery, paintings, ceramics, photography, textiles, cards and gifts. Where possible we select local makers and designers from Cumbria and the north of England. The gallery is a wonderful space in which to browse for the ideal gift or choose an individual piece for the home. Then enjoy some delicious food and drink in Harry's Cafe Bar and a browse through WRS Architectural Antiques.
