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.

Interesting visit even in the rain.


Cornishdreamer, L and A West Yorkshire
Had a lovely day here which the rain did not dampen. Interesting house with lots of information. The walled garden is beautiful and the talk in the conservatory was interesting with someone who obviously loves the work.

What a talented family


ThamesSailingbarge,
This was a great surprise - not remarkable from the outside but the pictures, dolls houses, lead soldiers, decorations and furnishings were superb. Guides were very helpful as we're the information plaques. Even on a day when roads were flooded, we walked to the walled garden and greenhouses.wonderful.

Beautiful house and grounds.


Yoakley123gardener,
Beautiful house with fantastic rooms, beautiful furniture and artifacts, glorious views across landscaped grounds and vista views. Lovely walk through woodland to what I think is wallingtons gem, the old fashioned kitchen garden. So interesting, well layed out borders of perennial plants, lovely lean to glasshouses, so much horticultural interest. Lovely little tea room in the middle with potting shed, displaying old photos of how the gardens were used to be layed out, supplying the main house with fruit and vegetables. Lovely walk back from the walled garden to the entrance area. Nice restaurant with well priced light lunches. Lovely day out.

Well worth a visit


tim186328, Penrith, United Kingdom
The is a great little gem and well worth a visit. The gardens and loverly and the house is well worth a look round. The guilds all were very friendly and happy to tell you lots of information. The team was also very nice with a good variety of snacks and drinks. It’s a bit of a walk to the walled garden but there is a small area to park if you have mobility problems.

Stunning


Amy P, Gateshead, United Kingdom
Visited with my partner as part of a few days away taking in the local sights whilst putting our NT pass to good use. There is plenty to see and do in terms of both the house, walks and gardens. We both throughly enjoyed the river walk and were lucky when we visited that it was a beautiful day making the day all the better. There are numerous areas for picnics and it was nice doing so watching all the goings on surrounded by the stunning views. The gardens are impeccable and well looked after. You can really tell they take pride in it. There are some beautiful flowers and should you want further information or advice on any of them you can send a photo to their gardener via email and they will let you have an answer. There are flower seads to purchase available from the conservatory. There are bikes available for hire and should we visit again we will hopefully take advantage of as it would be nice to see the place by a different means. The history of the house was very interesting with lots to be learnt and further information made available from the volunteers on sight again who were incredibly welcoming and friendly. Overall we were very impressed and had a lovely day.
