A Little Gem
TruthMunkie, Northumberland, United Kingdom
This is my local NT property and my family and I visit, maybe, 6 times a year. The home of Thomas Bewick, a celebrated author and wood engraver, this property is very small but is set in the beautiful Tyne Valley and plays host to all sorts of fun and games during summer holidays and at other times of the year. As much as my family love Cherryburn, I certainly wouldn't make a point of travelling a great distance to visit as the property is very small. However, if you're in the area, the NT always lay on fun family activities on the well-kept lawn during the summer holidays, as well as periodic events including the opportunity to get up close and very personal with birds of prey. Add in a small tearoom, a woodland play area, a colony of bees and a walk with donkeys and alpacas and I'd say that Cherryburn is a recipe for an excellent afternoon out for the whole family. Please don't think that properties have to be enormous to be of any interest; Cherryburn may be small but it's perfectly formed.
Interesting exhibits and pretty location

Hadn't heard of Thomas Bewick, but as National Trust members I enjoyed this place anyway - interesting exhibits in a quiet and peaceful setting. Nice gardens and property, and the museum part is informative. Not the biggest property and I'd say a little pricey for the full admission, but for what there is to display it's well done
Amazing little gem
Visited Cherryburn yesterday with my university and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It is small so you can be round in the hour but the garden walks are gorgeous and on a lovely sunny day taking a picnic would be a fantastic way to spend the day! The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly! Highly recommended 😁
Small but attractive

It's quite an interesting place showing works of Thomas Bewick, specially the printing blocks, sequence of works by drawing and carving the wood. and it is also an interesting place for kids, specially with the friendly donkeys, my daughter loved it, and of course Chocolate the hen.

There where four adults on our visit disappointed at tea room not a lot of choice but clean and pleasant. Museum interesting and the detail on art work outstanding. Nice walk round paddock but it is very short. Can only stay around an hour and seen it all.
