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

Quite a surprise Very Interesting .You can get hands on in the printing room. A well lade out exhibition with staff at hand if needed who were very enthusiastic. Lovely walks around the well kept grounds. Worth going to Stephensons birthplace on the same day

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.

This delightful cottage and grounds was the birthplace of Thomas Bewick the engraver. His life story is well told as you go around the cottage and out buildings as well as have a working press. 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.

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..
