A hidden gem!

Deborah B, Haydon Bridge, null, United Kingdom
Me and my mum decided to have a trip to Cherryburn from Haydon bridge by bus (685 to Hexham then number 10 to mickley) as we've been meaning to come for ages. The staff are very welcoming and gave us a great potted history of Thomas Bewick's life. The location is fantastic with amazing views across the valley and the little tearoom was lovely. We will be back!

Small NT Property

LYPud, Durham, United Kingdom
This is one of the smaller NT properties in the North East, but still worth a visit. The staff are lovely and very welcoming to the property, they are passionate about the place and it's always a plus. I imagine however it's better to visit in the summer. The house is small and therefore a visit solely for the house would be a short one. The printing room was informative, and the exhibits were interesting to look at, however could do with something to engage it's younger guests. Outside there is a lawned area for children to play which was nice and relaxed, I can imagine it to be great with a picnic in the summer. The paddock walk was closed off due to the recent weather so we were unable to see any animals on our visit. We enjoyed building dens in the adventure area. We managed to spend a good couple of hours here, however I think the weather has restricted the property somewhat.

Easter Egg Hunt

Flyer699, Northumberland
A very quiet visit due to the bad weather. However the grandchildren loved it jumping in all the puddles looking for the clues to be able to 'win' an Easter egg. Nice warm fire in the small cafe after the run aroud and then the grandchildren were able to print off a picture from the 'printing press'. Staff excellent.


Jane D,
A wonderful place to visit with outstanding views over the Tyne valley . Most helpful and informative staff with a great atmosphere in the tea rooms. Quiet little walk with the dogs on their leads which is understandable as there are animals in the summer time. Both the print room and museum room of great interest and this hidden little treasure is well worth a visit.

Small but nice

Janet D, Southport, United Kingdom
This was the birthplace of Thomas Bewick who engraved wood. My daughter was able to make a picture with some wodden blocks in the print room. We also had a walk around the paddock and met the two donkeys.
