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.

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.

Discovering new places

lou1lou1, northeast
Wallington hall has a new bike 🚴🏻 trail which the kids enjoyed, mum walked which was still ok however did have wrong shoes 👠 on but that did not stop us. Kids enjoyed all play areas and again loved playing in the trees 🌲 and enjoyed filling in their books. The hall itself was great seeing the history and kids learnt new things

Lovely day out

k_a_richards, Larnaka City, Cyprus
Great day out with something for the whole family. The children loved the adventure playground, the adults loved the house. Great cafe and lovely gardens and views. Well worth a trip.

Love the riverside walk across stepping stones

I come every holiday to Wallington Hall whilst visiting family in the north. We always have a good day out and is worth the hours drive. The adventure play areas have been upgraded each visit we make. In the summer holidays they could do with 2 zip wires..!! My all time fave is jumping the stepping stones on the riverside walk. Totally recommend it. The gardens looked exceptional this visit. Some super planting has taken place. Take a picnic or eat in the cafe. Both acceptable. You could easily make a full day out here. Happy visiting.

This beautiful house and garden is very underrated!

Carol-m-lee, Manchester, United Kingdom
We had never heard of this fantastic house and gardens and came across Wallington purely by accident. It is such a beautiful place with something for almost everyone . The house has a lovely fresh feel, the gardens are just magnificent, there are lots of play areas and plenty of places to purchase refreshments. Most definitely one of the best stately homes and gardens we have visited and the staff are fantastic too!

Cycling, countryside and walled gardens - perfect day out

Stephen B, Newcastle, United Kingdom
Wallington has always been a great place to visit. However, the completion of a cycle trail has offered a new dimension to this National Trust site. The ride is relatively easy and there are multiple options to suit all members of the family, even those who have only just started to ride a bike. It is very much worth riding the full circuit, up to Broom House Farm, where you can really experience the countryside at its best; you pass through a wooded area (Fountain Plantation) and then head through meadows, passing by sheep and cattle. The views are stunning when you arrive at the top of Comb Hill, and taking time to soak it all in at this point is recommended. Returning from here is mainly downhill, and a very enjoyable ride. There is no traffic to worry about and the National Trust have taken care to make sure that any relatively steep slopes are sign posted. Any gates are easy to open/close, and the surfaces of the paths are very well maintained. Refreshments are available from a Kiosk towards the end of the ride. However, if you enter into the central grounds, there is a lovely restaurant. The walled garden and house are fantastic, and a walk around these after the bike ride makes for a very pleasant day. There is also a riverside walk, which again is well maintained and takes you into lovely countryside. The staff are extremely helpful, knowledgeable and friendly, and genuinely care about the place. All the extra effort from the National Trust to further enhance the gardens and maintain the borders/conservatory, not forgetting the crocus lawns at springtime, makes this a special place. There are often events taking place in the house, if the weather is not so favourable. I would very much encourage the National Trust to consider extending the cycle track, since there is so much potential here. Places like this make joining the National Trust very worthwhile.
