Volunteering at Cherrryburn 

We like to keep Bewick's story alive by telling his story, welcoming visitors, organising events, keeping the place looking good (there's plenty of hedges to trim, lawns to cut and shelves to tidy) and helping to monitor the cafe and shop. If this sounds like something you'd like to help us to do, then please get in touch.


Places to stay

Holiday at a World Heritage Site 

We could be biased but we love Northumberland. With its rolling green hills, stunning scenery (if we do say so ourselves) and some truly brilliant places to visit. To help, there's three self catering holiday cottages situated alongside the iconic World Heritage Site, Hadrian’s Wall. It's the perfect place for a getaway and to admire the stars - especially as they're the darkest skies in England.
