Delightful and interesting place to visit
KirkbyTony, Kirkby in Furness, United Kingdom
This is the former home of Thomas Bewick [who I confess to never having heard of before]. It is a small farmhouse set up on a hill with lovely views and a collection of, mostly tame, wild animals around. The NT guides are at their very best here [that is default setting!] and it was a lovely discovery....
Very Interesting visit to birthplace of Thomas Bewick
rmackenzie1, Kirkintilloch, United Kingdom
My wife and I had a very pleasant visit this week to Cherryburn the birthplace of artist and naturalist. Set in beautiful gardens and with spectacular views over valley to the rear of the house, this made our visit as did the interesting talk on printing processes used at the time of Bewick's work and the enjoyable tea and scones.
I never knew!

Ticking off places on my National Trust list the visit to Cherryburn was a short drive from home.I learned about Thomas Bewick and his art all in one go!What a clever man and what a sweet little home.Its always worth taking time to use the information at the scene and then back home find out more.
Great little place
TheArchers15, Gloucester, United Kingdom
Spent a couple of interesting hours at this museum and also the home of the master engraver Thomas Bewick. Amazing craftsman and the location inspired his beautiful work. There is a print press room where an expert will show you the processes from ink making to printing the engravings. Light snacks can be purchased. The uneven cobbles leading to the house at the back are probably unsuitable for visitors who are less mobile.
Short but interesting visit.
Fandango11, Southampton Uk
We were pleasantly surprised by the friendly welcome we got here. We were told the history of the buildings and how important the work of Thomas Bewick was - I had never heard of him, but he was a master engraver who was known for his books of animal prints as well as many other books. You can see the building bewick was born in and there is a museum in the farm built by his son. I enjoyed the visit but my wife felt that £10.60 for two adults was a bit expensive for something that takes less than an hour to look around.
