Make yourself at home

Visit the impressive home of Sir Charles and discover more about this remarkable man and his unconventional family.

You can explore the history of Northumberland in huge pre-Raphaelite paintings around the Central Hall or take time to discover the beautiful furniture, treasured collections and quirky curiosities in each room.

Discover a secret garden

The Trevelyans loved being outdoors and close to nature. The house is surrounded by an informal landscape of lawns, lakes, woodland, parkland and farmland, just waiting to be explored. 

Don’t miss the hidden walled garden, nestled in the woods. It was beloved by Lady Mary Trevelyan and remains a beautiful haven whatever the season. Enter through Neptune’s Gate, sweep down the stone staircase, past the Mary Pool and soak up the tranquil atmosphere. Wander past colourful borders and enjoy the scent of the flowers in the Edwardian conservatory.

Explore in every season

No matter what time of year you visit, there’s always something special to enjoy. Look out for signs of spring from the wildlife hide, wander beneath dappled leaves on the river walk in summer, walk through the woods on a crisp autumn day and warm up in the colourful conservatory in winter.

Great family day out

Patsy J, Newcastle, United Kingdom
We were very impressed by the the staff who were excellent. The activities on offer cater for every member of the family. The house is stunning and a placet that you could keep co ing back to. Plenty of places to walk the dog and children to play safely.

Go, See, Do, Enjoy

Even on a misty drizzly damp day a walk around the grounds and by the river were a joy. After a previous freezing week, the snow and ice still hung on in corners whilst snowdrops and crocuses were defiantly in bloom awaiting a little ray of sunshine to give them a boost. A visit round the house was relaxing, the staff were friendly and informative. Right, that's my opinion, why don't you see for yourself.

A holiday visit

alison s, Dronfield, United Kingdom
This was one of the most interesting places we visited when on holiday.Fantastic gardens & a very good tea room where we had beautiful fresh scones &tea , staff were very pleasant.

A Lovely Place

ken s, Washington, United Kingdom
Outstanding place, The house is an insight into the past, immaculately kept. The volunteer guides are brill, they know just about everything about the family and the house. My wife particularly loved the kitchen. The walk through the woods to the beautiful walled garden is well worth the effort. We had lunch in the clock tower café , really nice and value for money, very pleasant staff.

Our favourite NT property by a mile!

PVWright, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Since we retired a few years ago, we visit Wallington a couple of times a month. We love doing the River Walk but it is always worth checking when you arrive that the stepping stones over the river aren't submerged or you will end up having to double back on yourselves and walk along the road which runs parallel to the river. We also love the walled garden and the conservatory. When we bring our grandchildren they enjoy the adventure playground and being able to run around on the big lawn in front of the cafe. We often treat ourselves to a cream tea!
