Beautiful, tiny, original 19th Century traditional farmhouse found in the Northumberland countryside overlooking the Tyne valley - but a million miles away from the likes of Newcastle! Wander around the grounds (in 15 minutes) and enjoy the peace and quiet. Owned by the 'famous' carver/printer/naturalist Thomas Bewick. While we were there there was a visiting printer explaining how Bewick carried... More

Visited this small but charming place run by the National Trust on Bank Holiday Monday. It is easily accessible on the A695 west of Newcastle, following the road to Blaydon and Prudhoe.I was one of the first visitors of the day and was greeted warmly by a knowledgeable young lady who informed me of the basic layout of the place,...

We had a wonderful family fun day at Cherryburn. The staff worked very hard to provide an excellent experience with the Canny Crack folk band entertaining us on the lawn and a very patient lady and musical accompaniament instructing everyone on Maypole dances. What great fun. Also the children loved their printing experience. However the cafe facilities are very basic... More

After living in the local area for just over 3 years I have only just found Cherryburn and what a lovely way to while away a couple of hours. Staff are friendly, views are lovely; there are donkeys, alpacas, lambs / sheep and very friendly hens. The coffee shop / cafe was small with basic facilities (by appearance as we... More

Tiny place with nothing to see. If you're in this area go 2 miles down the road to wheelbirks farm for ice cream & see the cows. Or pay the extra for Cragside! Poor BY venue

A great way to spend an hour or so. A small National Trust site but you get plenty for your entry fee and NT members must visit. The prints of Bewick and info about him is fascinating. The animals in the farm give a good atmosphere and the children there on the visit loved the chickens. The print room was... More

This is a great little National Trust property - small but full of lots of information and art work. There is a tea room too to make most of the visit.

Had been told not to expect too much here but was really pleasantly surprised. Took 3 children and they loved it. Firstly they did their own printing with potatoes, sponges and paint while chickens roamed under the tables. Then we went to see the animals. There was donkeys, alpacas, rheas and a big turkey. The children were delighted with the... More

Set on the south banks of the Tyne Valley a beautiful gem of a place. A little museum in the birthplace of Thomas Bewick, wood engraver. Good examples of his work to be seen, and the story of his life. Peaceful and quiet.

This was our third visit and we found it just as enjoyable as our previous visits. My children enjoyed the free-roaming chickens in the farmyard, and there are rheas, a turkey, alpacas and a friendly donkey. Museum, although not changed much, was still very interesting.
