Nestled in 26 acres of Dorset’s glorious countryside lies Sculpture by the Lakes, an oasis for art lovers and collectors alike created by renowned sculptor Simon Gudgeon. Simon’s vision was to create an environment for enthusiasts that blends nature’s beauty with inspiring works of art free from the constraints of enclosed spaces of a traditional gallery. The sculpture park has been carefully landscaped and curated to ensure each piece is positioned to enhance its aesthetic qualities as well as the visual surroundings.
The Gallery Cafe, situated at the award winning Sculpture by the Lakes, offers visitors a relaxed, cosy setting where you can enjoy a freshly prepared, seasonal menu made by our head chef Duncan Watts, sourced directly from our very own kitchen garden. ‘Field to Plate’ takes on a new meaning when you can see the vegetables growing just a short walk away! We also have a delicious array of homemade cakes, a wide selection of teas and coffees and an alcohol licence with some delicious wines, local beers and ciders.
