Cookhouse Gallery was established in 1981 by Jeff Sudders at the start of his artistic career. He chose an old cook house on Church Street in Ambleside to set up his gallery and since those early days, Cookhouse Gallery has become a popular destination for visitors to the Lake District and includes galleries in Bowness, Keswick and Windermere.
Cookhouse Gallery offers an eclectic selection of Lake District and contemporary art by well known national and local artists, including a permanent display of Jeff’s art. With a constantly changing collection. we offer something for everyone from original oils to fine art prints and photography.
Cookhouse Crafts is our new exhibition space located in Bowness on Windermere. Inspired by our love of art, we carefully select and showcase contemporary crafts by British makers. Our aim is to bring you beautiful crafts – all made with exceptional skill and an artists eye – displayed alongside striking contemporary art.
We hope you enjoy browsing our online gallery. Or come and visit us in the beautiful English Lake District!
