Based in a beautiful old school building, we have a unique and inspiring collection of affordable art and prints by artists from Northumberland and further afield. We are always sourcing pictures that would look great in the home – we hope you like them too! You can take it all in whilst you enjoy a delicious fresh coffee and a tasty homemade cake in our gallery coffee shop.

Lovely setting, wonderful Coffee and great food from Adventures in Aude. We had assorted Flatbreads with salad and every one was cooked to perfection. Beautiful setting at the Old School House Gallery. We will definitely return again.
