Thomas Bewick was an outstanding artist and wood engraver. He produced the to illustrate the books he produced and they are immaculate. His life story is very well exhibited and his actual birth place is set out to reflect the era. A lovely place to spend a very enjoyabke and informative couple of hours.

Cut it a bit fine and arrived with just 40 minutes before closing time so it was quiet and we had the place to ourselves. Enthusiastic help to make sure we missed nothing and even had time to wander around the grounds. So glad we got there.

Very very little to do here, 20 minutes maximum viewing time to see the lot, there's some alpacas, a couple of goats and some bees, lacking in things to see. Wouldn't visit again

This is a little gem of a place. The staff are very keen to explain down to the finest detail all the history of Thomas Bewick and his work with examples and demonstrations of the techniques he used in his printing. Wonderful views of the Tyne Valley and even an alpaca in ressidence !. A nice place to visit.

A lovely little National Trust place with lots of outdoor areas where you can go and see the animals, make huts with natural materials, look at the bee garden and play games on the lawn. Inside there is a small museum and a printing room where there are demonstrations of traditional printing techniques. It was a lovely sunny day when... More

Shame on me perhaps but until we visited this place I'd never heard of Thomas Bewick. Nevertheless by the time I left I had, thanks to the enthusiam of the staff, a good overview of Bewick's life, and the contribution he made. This is one of the smallest National Trust sites I have visited but it is also one which... More

The staff are knowledgeable and friendly, and were very keen to give us a lot of information. The cottage and grounds will take no more than 30 minutes to tour on a day with bad weather. I imagine it would be nicer in the sunshine. The bee hives were of particular interest and the grounds are lovely. Other reviews mention... More

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
