Overview

Discover Wallington, much-loved home to generations of the Trevelyan family and a magnificent estate where politics and play came together in the heart of Northumberland.

Gifted to you by Sir Charles Philips Trevelyan, socialist MP and ‘illogical Englishman’, this 13,000 acre estate has something for everyone. 

Cycling comes to Wallington

Bring your bike and explore Wallington on two wheels.  The new Dragon cycle trail has been designed with families in mind. This safe, entry level trail is the ideal way to get out and about and enjoy spotting wildlife and far reaching views across Northumberland.

Make the most of your day

Whether you’re visiting for an hour or two or are spending the whole day here, there’s plenty of ways to spend your time.

Explore the home of the unconventional Trevelyan family Visit the enchanting walled garden Look out for red squirrels at the wildlife hide Enjoy a refreshing walk along the river Relax in the grassy courtyard.

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.

Eating and shopping

Indulge yourself with a tasty snack or hot meal in the cosy Clocktower Café. Pick up a souvenir or take home a taste of Northumberland with plenty to choose from in our shops. Take inspiration from our flourishing gardens and buy herbs or plants from our plant centre.

Great place for families to explore


Glassysteph, Durham, United Kingdom
We visited Wallington on a nice sunny day with 4 children age 5 and under. The grounds were a great place to explore and play with great scenery from all angles. The welcoming music and singing story was great, the grounds well kept and the children lived the 3 different play areas. As we plan to visit a couple of times over the summer and it was such a nice day we spent all of our visit outdoors saving the inside exploration for another day. I gave 4 out of 5 as we were so disappointed with the children’s picnic plate from the cafe. The wraps were tiny, all wrap and hardly any filling. My children usually enjoy the sandwiches from nearly all lunch box selections but they wouldn’t eat the wraps after one bite and they left the cakes which is almost unheard of!! The popular packet of crisps wasn’t a choice in the picnic either. Other than the kids picnic plate the rest of the trip was well recommended.

Interesting house and gardens in rural Northumberland


LightAleCavalier, Lancashire
We arrived at lunchtime and started our visit with a light lunch in the cafe. We then toured the house - lots of original furniture and ceramics etc on a self guided visit. The grounds are extensive with a wildlife hide where we did see an amazing variety of birds but no red squirrels for which the grounds are famous. Well worth a visit if in the area.

Lovely house and gardens


JPJP33, Gloucester, United Kingdom
The house contains much of it's original furniture and a wonderful collection of ceramics. The rooms are in beautiful condition and full of history and interest. The walled garden is a must to see. It is a short distance from the house along well made paths. Peaceful and a delight to walk around. The cafe offers a good NT menu, although unfortunately they are still serving that dreadful carrot and coriander soup. Why do NT always serve this soup? Generally a very good day out and worth visiting.

Lovely house and grounds


Smelly_Cat58,
I’d never even heard of Wallington before but we were driving past and thought we should pop in to have a quick explore. I only wish we’d arrived a little bit earlier as the grounds are so big and we probably only ended up seeing a quarter of it. The house is really lovely (particularly liked the courtyard in the house) and has such an interesting history. Sadly we didn’t see any red squirrels, but my boyfriend was persuaded by a lovely member of staff to join the National Trust, so hopefully we’ll return in the future to try and spot some. The only thing I would point out is that the entry price seemed quite expensive, but if you’re coming for a whole day this would be good value.
