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.
