If you live in the North East, this is a highly recommended visit. We visited during a special family event and enjoyed a picnic in the beautiful gardens. Followed by a tour round the small, but perfectly formed house. The link between the North East and the US is fascinating!

making good use of our National Trust membership, we visited Washington Old Hall on a gloomy day. The gardens were lovely, and I'm sure they would be even better in the sun! The staff were friendly and helpful, and there were lots of activities available for children.

A fantastic afternoon visit. It must be at least 7 years since we visited Washinton old Hall. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and the newly displayed rooms and exhibits were refreshingly good. Being the ancestral home of George washington's ancestors it has some very unique artefacts from time gone by. A newly opened little tea room serving tea, coffee and... More

My mum and I visited in the summer. The house is quite small, but packed with interesting memorabilia, and there are guides to answer your questions and point out things you might have missed. The gardens are lovely and easily walked around. The cafe` was closed the day we visited but there are some places to eat in the village.... More

Visited today with family. Quite a small property but interesting all the same. Made even better by the fact one of its former tenants was there to chat to. Shame no shop or guide books to buy.

This is a lovely old house with guides in the house to tell you all about it. The day we visited the guide in one of the rooms told us he had given some of his own personal furniture to the house. The gardens are nice to walk around with a fenced off bit staff the top where you can... More

The link to Washington , the firts prfesident of the US is tenuous at best, but this house is quite small and they build the focus around this relationship.Its interesting to see the work that has been out in to this , the paintings, photos, documents and videos. For anyone in that area and a member of the NT it's... More

Washington Old Hall is the ancestral home of George Washington and, according to the National Trust volunteers working there, is a favourite with American visitors. In fact they have been known to arrive by the coach load! The Hall isn't very large, so fortunately when we arrived the house was quiet with only a handful of visitors. Although the Hall... More

On a recent business trip to Newcastle, my husband and I decided to visit Washington Old Hall...we are NT members. It was well and clearly signposted from the main road [not always the case with NT properties]. We were welcomed by a guide who cheerfully explained the layout of the house, offering information and help if we needed it. We... More
