Book in advance to visit this unassuming Northumbrian farmstead which is the birthplace of the famous artist and naturalist Thomas Bewick.
Bewick is perhaps Northumberland’s greatest artist: a wood engraver and naturalist who revolutionised print art in Georgian England. Set in a tranquil garden with views across the Tyne Valley, Cherryburn is surrounded by the natural world that inspired his work.
Discover his tiny birthplace cottage and farmyard with glorious views over the Tyne Valley, plus a traditional 19th century farmhouse - the later home of the Bewick family, now a museum - with an unrivalled collection of his work and an exhibition about his life.
Follow Bewick’s wood blocks on their journey to the print room and once outside, explore the delightful cottage gardens.
Cherryburn is open Thursdays and Fridays only and pre-bookings are essential to visit. Tickets can be booked through the Cherryburn website. The property will close on 25 September 2021 for the season and reopen on Thursday 14 April 2022.
