Wallington House and Garden

Wallington House is a magnificent mansion with fine interiors and collections including huge Pre-Raphaelite paintings depicting the history of Northumbria, and the intriguing Cabinet of Curiosities and collection of dolls' houses. It is set in fabulous naturalistic gardens, in the style of 'Capability' Brown, with stone griffin heads on the lawn, and an enchanting hidden garden. This in turn is  set in parkland, surrounded by evocative Northumberland moorland, the 'Border Reiver' territory.

The walled garden and grounds remain open throughout the year, as does the farm shop, in support of the estate's farm tenants and other regional suppliers
