As well as our delightful Georgian cottage in St Ives, we are now offering holidays in our well-established Shepherd’s Hut in our field at Keigwin overlooking the Atlantic.  Sleeping two, the Hut comes with a wood-burning stove, an outdoor kitchen, outdoor table and chairs, candles and oil lamps, as well as all amenities in nearby 300-year old outbuildings ~ spacious Shower and Washroom; WC; fully equipped kitchen in The Potting Shed; gardens to enjoy and a beach close by. If this is of interest, do give Gilly a ring on 01736 786425 (gilly@yewtreegallery.com). We are also preparing the splendid ‘Lotus Belle’ for later this summer. Sleeping 4, complete with its own outdoor kitchen, comfy chairs, kilims and cushions and hanging lanterns!  Photos to follow.

YEW TREE GALLERY, on the West coast of Cornwall, is set among fields and gardens facing the broad Atlantic against a backdrop of the ancient moors of Penwith. The village of Morvah lies about a mile away, with the erstwhile mining community of Pendeen and Botallack to the west.

The gallery buildings nestle into the landscape at Keigwin, a farming hamlet on the B3306 coast road between St Ives and St Just. Exhibitions are held from Easter to the end of October, curated by Gilly Wyatt Smith who previously ran Yew Tree Gallery in Derbyshire then Gloucestershire for 30 years.

Many of the exhibitions follow a theme that links us to our environment – both particular to this place but also embracing the wider realm of the planet.

Nationally respected artists living in Cornwall and beyond are selected for solo and themed exhibitions. Throughout the gallery’s history, emphasis has been on showing work of the highest calibre in a variety of disciplines – painting, sculpture, ceramics, glass, textiles, wood or jewellery.

Visitors to the gallery are invited to wander through the sculpture gardens and organic potager with its wildlife pond, enjoy the views as well as the works of art and perhaps linger for a coffee or tea and freshly baked biscuit at our converted ‘Potting Shed’ kitchen. Plants, herbs and saladings are for sale too (when crops are abundant) and our free-range hens lay delicious large eggs!
