Cherryburn

Station Bank, Mickley Square, Stocksfield, Northumberland, NE43 7DD

This unassuming Northumbrian farmstead is the birthplace of famous artist and naturalist Thomas Bewick.

Bewick is perhaps Northumberland’s greatest artist: a wood engraver and naturalist who revolutionised print art in Georgian England. Set in a tranquil garden with views across the Tyne Valley, Cherryburn is surrounded by the natural world that inspired his work.

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, now a museum – 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, explore the delightful cottage gardens, farmyard and paddock walk, and say hello to the farm animals too. It’s perfect for picnicking, catching up over coffee or playing with the kids.
