Cottage and farmhouse, the birthplace of Thomas Bewick

Thomas Bewick is perhaps Northumberland’s greatest artist: a wood engraver and naturalist who revolutionised print art in Georgian England.

Discover his tiny birthplace cottage and farmyard with glorious views over the Tyne Valley, plus a traditional 19th-century farmhouse, the later home of the Bewick family, with an unrivalled collection of his work and an exhibition about his life.

Follow Bewick’s wood blocks on their journey to the print room, where regular Sunday afternoon demonstrations bring alive this intricate craft, or explore the delightful cottage gardens, farmyard and paddock walk, perfect for picnicking or playing with the kids.

We're open for business

Explore the gardens and see the fruit trees bright with blossom

Spring is on it's way, we're open again for visitors, six days in a week (closed on a Wednesday). The animals are still on their winter holidays and will return in early April. Pop in for a wander and a warm drink.
