This was a delight from start to finish-- in this case small is very definitely beautiful. Very attractive property, gardens, setting and displays, all rounded off by two of the most helpful and friendly staff we have met for a long time. Great credit to them. We would have wished for more variety in the animals present, and Alpacas were... More

Good place to visit for anyone interested in Thomas Bewick. Look him up before you visit to help understand the importance of his work. There are opportunities to do printing with copies of his plates and an old press you would need to check times with the web site. The farm has some animals so it would be fun for... More

We visited here when the weather wasn't great so there was only a handful of visitors and the staff. The property etc isn't big so it's not somewhere you can spend all day. They did have lambs in the paddock as well as donkeys. The printing room wasn't in operation which was a shame. There was plenty of informations points... More

The birthplace of master engraver and naturalist Thomas Bewick. A delightful cottage with very welcoming and friendly staff. The main cottage houses a good display about the life and times of Bewick, with things to see and read at both adult and child height. There is an adjoining print room where you can watch a short film about print engraving... More

I have to confess that I tend to prefer the smaller properties in the NT portfolio and Cherryburn is a fine example of what I like. The property is essentially two cottages in a very nice farmyard, set in a glorious location with beautiful views across the valley. The bigger cottage hosts the bulk of the exhibits and provides an... More

Proved to be well worth the detour home from a few days in Northumberland. Well presented small member of the NT properties. Very welcoming and laid out to allow a clear insight into the work of Thomas Bewick.

There is a short film to watch which is well presented and the staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. We went on a day which... More

We only called in while passing southbound from Scotland and were charmed by this historic little house, the birthplace of a pioneering naturalist, engraver and printer. The story is well presented and the staff are very helpful. Well worth the visit.
