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.

Really enjoyed our visit here and seeing the red squirrels in the grounds however we found the house a little bit of a disappointment.

The grounds are well kept and the walks a really easy and well signed. There is loads to see and do. The staff we spoke to were all friendly and very helpful. There were loads of activities during the half term week.

lovely soup but slow service in the tea shop


Suzanne F, Stockton on Tees, United Kingdom
We enjoyed our visit a week ago, good long walk round the gardens and did the river walk too (note although there is an alternative to walk on the road for part of the way on this, there were stepping stones). The conservatory was colourful and interesting ( and warmed us up!) and we bought some seeds there. not many snowdrops but attractive scene. Good soup but we did wait a long time for it.

Fantastic for everyone, we'll be returning over and over


Kirsty S, Morpeth, United Kingdom
We just loved it here. We visited as a family in the Autumn. We started off raking leaves and wheelbarrow-ing them onto the big pile of leaves, my 4 and 6 year old loved this - we had to drag them away. They were soon distracted though by the impressive castle play park, whilst we had a coffee and scone break at the nearby picnic tables. We followed this up with a fun walk through a beautiful, natural, wooded area until we came across a walled garden. The garden is lovely, lots to look at, places to sit paths to walk. We didn't even visit inside the house this visit, but just the estate alone there is plenty to see to fill a day. We will definitely be returning.

Ideal for a Winter walk


Barbara J,
This was our first visit to Wallington. NT staff very welcoming and pointed out the walled garden, river walk and bird hide before we set off on our visit. Had lunch in the café where we were served by a very friendly gentleman. Thought the café a little expensive. Went to the walled garden which was lovely in the snow and then onto the bird hide where we saw a red squirrel, a deer and Greater Spotted Woodpecker along with several Blackbirds, Robins, Chaffinches, Blue Tits, Great Tits and Coal Tits. Great place to see wildlife and walk with spectacular scenery.
