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.

Bad treatment in coffee shop spoilt everything

David R, Smethwick, United Kingdom
On holiday and came for our 3rd visit over the years. So glad we are members as if we had paid £32 to get in we would have been distraught. We had missed breakfast so were well ready for food @ 12.15 - headed straight for the Clock Tower tea room. Found a table - only 2 occupied and went to order food and drinks. Lady on till was chatting to a colleague and continued to do so - turning to me a saying 'wont be a minute' and then finished her conversation before taking the order. Went to collect the drinks from the servery to be given 2 Americanos instead of 1 and a latte. Told the server who looked at me i disbelief, checked the till, saw she was wrong and then almost immediately came back with what she said was a latte. What she had done was put warm milk in the Americano - my wife said it was awful. Took it back again and said I wanted a proper latte as this was just milk put in - to be told that a latte was expresso shot plus milk which of course we knew. The supposed latte came back within a minute and no sound from the espresso machine. Again not a pleasant drink but my wife said to leave complaining. The meal was not pleasant. My wife had a panini of mozzarella, ham and sundried tomatoes - hardly any cheese - not been in the press long enough to really warm through and on the whole panini just 1 sundried tomato. My frittata had obviously been warmed up - very small wedge and the 'tomato salad' was 4 or 5 pieces of very small cut tomato. The slaw was inedible. To cap everything off, the waitress who brought the order, pushed on the table and knocked my coffee over - cleaned table and went - no offer of another replacement. Completely spoilt everything so never even went anywhere else just went home - what a terrible day.

One of the best examples of 1900 decor that I have seen

Stephen M, County Durham, United Kingdom
I visited Wallington Hall on my National Trust card and wasn't disappointed. A beautiful house full of interesting facts where staff are on hand to advise you about the history of the Trevelyan family who moved into the house in 1928. Wallington has been owned by The Fenwick's, blacketts and trevelyan's all making their mark on this huge estate. After the visit to the house there are some gorgeous walks around the gardens taking you to the Walled Garden which is beautifully maintained. If you have time you should stretch your legs on the riverwalk or have some fun on the Adventure Playground . You can also discover the play train and fort. Refreshments are on hand at the nearby cafe which sells a delicious array of tantalising food. I will definitely be returning to explore the rest of this beautiful place because I think you need more than a day to do so Wallington is a family home full of stories a woodland perfect for play a Walled Garden to inspire and working Estate to explore and so much more

Afternoon visit

530chash, Peterborough, United Kingdom
Perhaps not the best day to visit due to the rain, however we had a great time, by the time we had visited the house which was lovely the rain had more or less stopped so we walked all the way down the east garden to the conservatory and beyond. Most enjoyable and knowledgeable staff Thank yo guys

Visited with family as we had National Trust Membership and had a fantastic day out. On entry we were given a detailed map of the estate which highlighted many points of interest. The Hall itself is splendid with plenty of guides on hand to answer any questions as you pass through the rooms. There are several walks in the woodland and the Walled Garden is simply beautiful, visiting in the Summer month all the flowers were in full bloom. Younger visitors won’t be disappointed either as there are a couple of play areas for them to enjoy. It is certainly a lovely place to visit and while away a few hours.

Interesting House and good walks

AngryTinDuck, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
We had a great time at Wallington, the house is interesting and the gardens are well presented. The walled garden is a highlight and bigger than expected, make sure you have time to explore this part of the property The play park and fort are a great addition and the ability to rent bikes is also good. Highly recommended
