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.

Fun day out!

This a National Trust House which we have been to twice. The staff are really nice, friendly and encouraging. Very fun activities for kids and nice to have a peaceful walk around. They have donkeys that are really cute and you can stroke them! A lot of things to do. When I was there the activity was finding objects that don't fit in the place where they are - for example the toaster shouldn't have been in the olden day room, and you had a piece of paper to write the first initial of each worrd that doesn't fit in and you have the unscramble the words to reveal a dog's name. Loved it!!

Small property but worth a visit

This is only a small National Trust property but well worth the visit. The people running the property were very friendly and informative. It does not take long to look around but everything is well displayed and explained. I also liked seeing the two donkeys out in the paddock. Could easily be visited in conjuction with a visit to Gibside.

Day out

BennyAlgoKarli, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Me and my family visited here because of two reasons, we have never been and wanted to see it and the other because my boyfriend's mam volunteers here and I wanted to see her. It's a lovely little place with lots of history,beautiful views and two donkeys and alpacas. It's worth a visit.
