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

Quite interesting but not really sufficient to hold one's interest for long. The NT could probably do more to explain the history of Cherryburn and make it a little more interactive.

Very interesting and informative, especially in the press room. Staff very helpful and informative. Will certainly go back in the warmer weather to have a look in the gardens and farm. Good if you have a National Trust card.
