We made a day of it and visited 3 of the smaller National Trust properties in the area. We probably wouldn't have done so had we not been NT members which meant we got in free - we've found it only takes a few visits to cover the annual membership fee so is good value for us. We hadn't heard... More

A very compact National Trust property with a very interesting exhibition. The lawns and animals seemed to attract families and the tea room was doing a roaring trade.

The place is kept very neat and as can be expected the... More

In a county that has lots of large high profile National Trust properties it might be easy to overlook Cherryburn. Don't, as it is well worth a visit. The cottage birthplace is small and although interesting the real interest lies in seeing the beautifully carved woodblocks and the prints of Bewick. Added to these the other stand out feature of...

Having read a biography of Thomas Bewick I was interested to visit this place. It's not big consisting of a few rooms in the main house, some out buildings and a paddock but it was charming and fascinating. Bewick's skill as a wood engraver was exceptional and seeing the originals and the printing machinery and technique made this even more... More

This is a real gem and I can't believe I've not visited before. Myself and my children spent nearly 5 hours here one sunny Friday enjoying the fantastic views, outdoor areas and animals. My kids are aged between 10 and 2 and they all had a fab time. Although not lots here compared to other NT properties it is a... More

The childhood home of world famous woodcarver Thomas Bewick. Interesting to see the print room - printer in attendance Thurs and Sunday - please check first. Pigs and chickens for the children, and a field of donkeys.❤️ Tea and a scone and a chat with the lovely National ladies.

Not for everyone, but a fascinating hour or two with knowledgeable staff. No refreshments other than limited snackbar. National Trust property.

A small NT property situated on the western outskirts of Prudhoe and the birthplace of Thomas Bewick; artist, wood engraver and naturalist. His father was a tenant farmer and the outbuildings reflect life on a farm. Thomas left at 14 to serve an apprenticeship in Newcastle and there's a small museum housing some of his works. Next door is the... More

We came to Cherryburn mainly to search for a Geocache but we stayed and had a look around. Staff were lovely and really friendly and helpful. Attraction is very small and doesn't hold your attention for long but a nice place for a visit
