The Secret Garden Gallery is open to everyone, showing original artwork and crafts by local and visiting artists. Workshops in Painting, music and more, are planned for the future.

Tea, coffee and cake can be enjoyed whilst sitting at the Mad Hatters' Tea Table, which is installed as both an artwork and a tea-table in the gallery.

Guests can enjoy looking at more artwork which is displayed throughout the house and in the bedrooms. Artists are encouraged to use the space in the gallery if they wish to paint, and if any musicians feel so inclined, it's also a great space to sit and practice! Bert Jansch used the gallery to record his album ‘Toy Balloon’ because he liked the acoustics so much.
Some samples of the artwork displayed in the gallery and elsewhere are shown below.
