Little Gem

Mumanddad R, Bedford, United Kingdom
Tiny, but fascinating, museum of Thomas Bewick a pioneer of wood engraved illustrations. The staff were friendly and if you wanted to find out more about printing and engraving there is much to see.

Not huge but friendly and fascinating

Worth a visit for its connection to thomas bewick; Its not just the house workshop and yard, but also has a lovely garden. Parking can be limited on a sunny day.

Peaceful place

We were welcomed by Mark who was very informative and knew a lot about the place and Norma who was very cheerful. Although this is one of the smallest NT properties it is well worth a visit. The information around the place are easy to read and very helpful and helped us to realise what it was all about.

Pretty cottage and walking

This was a very nice place to visit. Not big so a coffee and walk was good. The best part was to see the Alpacas and their 1 day old baby.

Cherryburn a delightful National Trust Property

Had a lovely couple of hours here. The weather was glorious which helps. This was the birthplace of Thomas Bewick who was an natural history artist and engraver. The printroom was amazing and whilst we were there we had a demonstration on how it would have been done but not using the wooden blocks Bewick used but using a replica. We all got a small print of a Heron to take home . Lovely walk round the paddock and there were 3 baby Alpacas as well. Activities for children and deck chairs were available on the top lawn. The house that he was born in was quite small but there was an exhibition in there of beautiful small paintings by Mark Fairnington in the style of Thomas Bewick. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and looked after you. Lovely cuppa and a scone went down very well which we had outside and with spectacular views over the Tyne valley what more could anyone want.
