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. 

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.

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

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.

National trust house & gardens


chocmw, Coventry, United Kingdom
National trust house & gardens. Only visited the gardens. We visited the wildlife hide & spotted a cheeky stoat eating from the bird feeder as well as some birds, blue tits, robins, tree creeper & woodpecker. Then a walk along the wansbeck river and across the stepping stones. A gentle walk about 21/2 miles. This national trust property has a lively coffee shop, serving hot & cold drinks & cakes. Will definitely visit again. There are some great play areas for younger kids & it's also dog friendly:)

Deck the Hall with Christmas pretty


Joanna M, Newcastle upon Tyne, England, United Kingdom
Beautiful walk around the grounds yesterday. My Mum booked an electric scooter and the lady was helpful and considerate, providing a great thermal red blanket, which made all the difference, as it can be chilly when sitting. Went to the clock tower cafe for lunch, lovely, but packed out. Still efficient service from staff, serving hot and cold tasty food. Next visited the house which had beautiful Christmas decor, as one of the staff had made hundreds of Christmas decorations which looked great around he ground floor. Music was being played on the piano and the Drawing room had Mary Christmas in full Mrs Santa outfit reading stories to the children. No baking in the kitchen happening during our visit, but the children were having fun making Christmas Crackers. We didn't have to show Our national trust cards again to enter the house, which was nice. Mum hired the scooter for free or three and a half hours. The house was closing at 3.30pm, so would advise you to visit early in the day. Great place, lots of grounds for walks, fab children's play area, bird hide and river walk etc. Not forgetting the walled garden and stunning garden room, also decorated beautifully for Christmas. Thanks to all staff, we enjoyed our traditional Christmas holiday visit. Need a family option below without teens, or young children- as on this visit, neither were with us, although have been in previous years. Good walks ranging from gentle, for less fit and mobile, to more active and physically demanding.

Christmas Evening Opening


wiltsmum52, Salisbury, United Kingdom
Always a beautiful place to visit, however the property is open on 3 special evenings before Christmas and we were able to visit on one of these. The staff have worked incredibly hard - all year apparently- to prepare and dress the Hall for Christmas. It was warm and welcoming - and very well attended by many families. We also walked around the West Wood during the day and are impressed by the changes and hard work of the outside staff.
