Birthplace of Thomas Bewick and you see both his original cottage and his later, bigger, cottage now the centrepiece of the site and its museum and its press room. Opportunity to walk around the gardens and the nearby fields and see goats, sheep and al-pacas but longer walks possible. Stunning views across the Tyne Valley. Knowledgeable custodians, who made us... More

Small but self-contained site with enough to see of interest for a hour or two. There is the main building/farmhouse where the displays are but also an earlier small house where Bewick was born and which almost has a medieval quality about it. Animals, a small walk and beautiful countryside to look at. I could happily have enjoyed sitting and... More

How nice to come down from the big houses to somewhere that real people lived. Not only that but to celebrate one of Englands greatest engravers and craftsmen. As usual knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff welcome all visitors. Maybe small, but try and arrange a visit when one of the many events are on..

Nice little farmhouse, outbuildings and gardens and very interesting history relating to Thomas Bewick the engraver and naturalist. The property is well preserved with a small farmyard and engraving workshop. Small car park and you could generally get round the whole site in an hour. Limited shop and refreshments provided by the very knowledgeable and helpful property manager who makes... More

We were staying in the local area so decided to call in. This is probably one of the smallest nt properties but has a small museum, small selection of animals alpacas, sheep and an area for kids to play games. Worth calling in if your passing but only probably for an hour or so.

Super place to visit, especially if you only have an hour to spare. The history of the place is interesting and the animals(donkeys, alpacas and sheep) are great for the children.

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
