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.

Fantastic day out


Allen1892,
My girlfriend is part of a pram gang (large group of friends with young babies). And they decided wallington would be a new place to try. All the better halves were dragged along some more enthusiastic than others. The grounds and gardens are amazing from the river walk to the walled garden everyone was impressed. The restaurant was lovely but very busy. By the end of the day the kids and parents were shattered and both very impressed by the whole place. We ended up joining the national trust just so we can come back often. Thank you to all the people that made the place so amazing

Beautiful


boydy73, Darlington, United Kingdom
Started to drizzle on arriving so the new exhibition centre where lots of information and windows to watch the birds feed and see the family voles running around. Walk down drive with lovely arched entrance to court yard shop, garden shop and cafe. Tea and scone very nice. Lovely walk down to walled gardens under the changing coloured trees. Beautiful walks.

Loos absolutely spotless


Wetheral1, Carlisle, United Kingdom
Friends who manage a National Trust property in Devon were visiting and requested a visit to Wallington. The garden was the first port of call and given it was October there was a surprising amount of interest and the overall standard was high. We particularly liked the bags of seeds for a bargain £1 in the Orangery. We were greeted warmly at the front door to the house and told what was available including ceramics cleaning. Not the largest Trust house but immaculate interiors and friendly, smililing room guides. Five stars to the loo cleaner responsible for the Courtyard Gents; they were immaculate. I was glad I wasn't the only visitor who couldn't work out the method of entering and leaving the new Information Centre which perhaps needs rethinking!

Autumn River Walk


Brenda H, Hawthorn,Co.Durham
The weather was cold but bright and we took the river walk around the property this week. The walk is very pleasant with a fair walk down to the river which was very beautifu.....l the trees are just changing colour and we went across the bridge. This part was the only area without a decent gravel path as the other side of the river was a little muddy and slippy. Then to cross the river again we had to use step stones. The stones are large a quite flat so relatively easy to use although do look a bit daunting before you start. A lovely walk maybe try it again over the winter as it will be so different then.
