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. 

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.

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

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.

Always Something To Do


GBJ-Cookies, South Shields, United Kingdom
Been coming here for nearly 20 years, this was our first visit without children, so seen the place in a different light. There is always something to do, from great walks, the beautiful gardens and the house to childrens playgrounds to the wildlife hive. The place has a lot of building work going on at the moment but this didn't spoil our visit. They are busy building a new visitors centre which a friendly staff member assured us will be open in May. My only fault with this place is possibly the admission price at nearly £14 for an adult does seem a bit steep with so many other attractions and distractions looking to take your hard earned cash it may put some people off, my advice would be join the National Trust. Plenty of picnic places and also a well stocked cafe.

Crocuses to dream about for days to come, staff are great too


bilsdalea, bilsdalea
Paul Kingston's photograph of the new crocus lawn reminded me the place exists and it did not disappoint, both inside and out. Friendly staff and so much to see in half a day. Plan to return soon. Good parking and lots of lovely walks and gardens.

Lovely garden and walks


Wildcat1224, Carlisle, United Kingdom
We visit here quite often throughout the year, there is always something different to see and do, the crocuses in the walled garden are beautiful, spent a while in the wildlife hide, disappointed we didn't see a red squirrel this time. Lots of walks and plenty to keep the children entertained.

Lovely gardens and a well displayed house. Shame about the cake.


3derek, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Went to see the crocuses in the garden, which were lovely, even on a grey day. Enjoyed touring the house, which was almost empty. Freeflow and removal of almost all barriers, as well as decent light levels and properly lit ceramic displays make it an excellent visit. The afternoon was only let down by the cake in the cafe, which was stodgy and dry.

Beautiful


Tallis, Northumberland
We visit here many times during the year, but the walled gardens and crocus display is absolutely wonderful this year. It's well worth a visit and shouldn't be missed- a sea of purple. In a week or two the daffodils will have bloomed so we'll return. Even on a crowded Sunday pm. there's places where it's peaceful and quiet within the grounds.
