Interesting visit

BrucieBEssexBoy, Billericay, United Kingdom
Former home of Thomas Bewick, artist, wood engraver and naturalist, very simple and humble house. Museum once home to his brother and full of interesting artifacts and a tribute to his skills as an engraver. Very helpful volunteers Small but beautiful !

Nice location, not much to see

David F, Chester, United Kingdom
I think that £6+ is a little over-priced for what there is to see here. It is a nice little spot and the welcome is warm but basically it is a farmhouse and yard with some llamas in a field, a gallery with some animal prints, a print room and a quaint but tiny cottage where the artist was born. Access is easy enough - the half-hourly bus service 10 Hexham to Newcastle passes the end of the road then it is a steepish 5 minute walk to the entrance. If you hurry you can see the site and catch the next bus!

A Tyne Valley Gem

The garden & buildings are small by National Trust standards, but what a great place. Brought to life by the volunteers, especially the enthusiastic young person who greeted us. The story of Thomas Berwick is fascinating and to see some of his original blocks, and recent prints made from them was really astonishing.

Don,t make a special journey to visit.

Luckily we call during a day out in Hexham the property is very small with only a few rooms to explore the gardens are also fairly small and looked unkempt this may have course have been intended, if you are not a National Trust member the admission price is really quite expensive for what thereon offer.

Small but beautiful

We wanted somewhere to visit on the way to our holiday cottage and chose Cherryburn. It was a beautiful day for February and our grandson enjoyed playing games in the garden. We walked round the paddock but unfortunately there were no animals in at that time. A member of staff told us all about the farmhouse which we went to look at but only the downstairs rooms are open to look in. The printing press and museum are in the cottage and prints are available to buy. We ended the day with a bit for tree climbing and den making before heading to our holiday cottage.
