Wallington - National Trust
Magnificent estate where politics and play came together in the heart of Northumberland
Discover Wallington, much-loved home to generations of the unconventional Trevelyan family.
Visit the impressive, yet friendly house, and explore the history of Northumberland in the huge pre-Raphaelite paintings around the remarkable Central Hall. Be inspired by the beautiful furniture, family paintings and treasured collections.
The Trevelyans loved being outdoors and close to nature and the house is surrounded by an informal landscape of lawns, lakes, woodland, parkland and farmland, just waiting to be explored.
There is even a beautiful walled garden hidden in the woods, a colourful haven of tranquillity in all seasons.
Enjoy great days out at Wallington this Spring. Discover the treasures in the house, tick off some 50 thngs adventures, let off steam on our play train, storm the fort and enjoy events every day of the school holidays.
Naughty but nice Puddings!
Check out our delicious puddings, my favourite is the limoncello trifle, not suitable for the kids, but there are some other scrummy recipes that the whole family can enjoy! Take a look in our pudding section for recipes to make summer BBQ's and eating alfresco all the more tasty! My girls LOVE the chocolate pizza - making it, but mostly eating it!
Over the weekends and holidays there are always times when your children need some chill out time, or to fill an hour or so, or they say the dreaded 5 letter word - BORED! Well, our KidsZone is here to rescue you and them from these moments. Full of puzzles, colouring in sheets and activities from films and programmes there is lots to keep busy!
