Overview

Discover Wallington, much-loved home to generations of the Trevelyan family and a magnificent estate where politics and play came together in the heart of Northumberland.

Gifted to you by Sir Charles Philips Trevelyan, socialist MP and ‘illogical Englishman’, this 13,000 acre estate has something for everyone. 

Cycling comes to Wallington

Bring your bike and explore Wallington on two wheels.  The new Dragon cycle trail has been designed with families in mind. This safe, entry level trail is the ideal way to get out and about and enjoy spotting wildlife and far reaching views across Northumberland.

Make the most of your day

Whether you’re visiting for an hour or two or are spending the whole day here, there’s plenty of ways to spend your time.

Explore the home of the unconventional Trevelyan family Visit the enchanting walled garden Look out for red squirrels at the wildlife hide Enjoy a refreshing walk along the river Relax in the grassy courtyard.

Make yourself at home

Visit the impressive home of Sir Charles and discover more about this remarkable man and his unconventional family.

You can explore the history of Northumberland in huge pre-Raphaelite paintings around the Central Hall or take time to discover the beautiful furniture, treasured collections and quirky curiosities in each room.

Discover a secret garden

The Trevelyans loved being outdoors and close to nature. The house is surrounded by an informal landscape of lawns, lakes, woodland, parkland and farmland, just waiting to be explored. 

Don’t miss the hidden walled garden, nestled in the woods. It was beloved by Lady Mary Trevelyan and remains a beautiful haven whatever the season. Enter through Neptune’s Gate, sweep down the stone staircase, past the Mary Pool and soak up the tranquil atmosphere. Wander past colourful borders and enjoy the scent of the flowers in the Edwardian conservatory.

Explore in every season

No matter what time of year you visit, there’s always something special to enjoy. Look out for signs of spring from the wildlife hide, wander beneath dappled leaves on the river walk in summer, walk through the woods on a crisp autumn day and warm up in the colourful conservatory in winter.

Eating and shopping

Indulge yourself with a tasty snack or hot meal in the cosy Clocktower Café. Pick up a souvenir or take home a taste of Northumberland with plenty to choose from in our shops. Take inspiration from our flourishing gardens and buy herbs or plants from our plant centre.

Autumn River Walk


Brenda H, Hawthorn,Co.Durham
The weather was cold but bright and we took the river walk around the property this week. The walk is very pleasant with a fair walk down to the river which was very beautifu.....l the trees are just changing colour and we went across the bridge. This part was the only area without a decent gravel path as the other side of the river was a little muddy and slippy. Then to cross the river again we had to use step stones. The stones are large a quite flat so relatively easy to use although do look a bit daunting before you start. A lovely walk maybe try it again over the winter as it will be so different then.

Drives you mad


BillNorthumberland, Morpeth, United Kingdom
I have purposely given 1 star in the hope that someone from the Trust will rethink their current new car park layout. Why can't all of the parking lanes run off one entrance lane and not as it is now where you have to snake up and down the lines of parked cars. You end up driving quarter of a mile to end up 100yards from the car park entrance, crazy! Once you've parked the hall and grounds are worth a visit and are well organised and maintained, shame about the entrance.

Plenty too see, good for children to see his their ancestors !ibid.


pmpandhh88, Morpeth, United Kingdom
Plenty to interest all ages. Educational four children to see how there ancestors lived and worked. Add to that the grounds are really lovely and plenty of wild life to see if you can keep the children quiet.

Well worth the detour


grumpfromhinckley,
On the way back down the A1 after a few days in Northumbria, we decided to take a short detour to Wallington house & gardens. We're glad we did! Starting with the mushroom stew & dumplings in the teahouse, which was delicious, we then wandered down to the walled garden through the wood where the red squirrels roam. Back to the house where friendly volunteers guided us through the many rooms with interesting exhibits. Well worth the detour.
