    Like much of the area, it is up and down - be prepared with good shoes
    The grounds are very pleasant to explore with woods and trails around the site. If you do the river walk then be prepared that you drop quite a way to get to the river and that means you have to come back up! The walled gardens are a short distance from the hall - again a bit of up and down plus crossing the road. They are, however, worth the effort. They are putting a lot of effort into making it child friendly with play areas and things to explore. The café serves good food.

    Lovely house, but gardens the star
    A really well presented country house with many original family artefacts. Murals in main stairways are amazing. Nice as the house is it's a pleasant walk to the wall garden, which are very well maintained, full of colour, and a tranquil place to relax for an hour

    Good half day visit with good weather
    Visited Wallington 10July with a 4 / 5 year old and 19 month grand children. It was reasonably quiet as the school hols haven’t started. The play areas(4) were greatly enjoyed by my granddaughter then afterwards had a mini picnic on the large immaculate lawn near the cafe, shop etc. The hall is very nice with very pleasant and knowledgeable guides and the gardens well kept and very colourful at this time of year.Will return later in year without kids to further explore

    wonderful wallington
    Accidentally fell upon this place while travelling to a holiday cottage. So pleased we did. It was a lovely spot to have a break. I particularly enjoyed looking at the art work. Would definitely recommend and would visit again if in the area.

    Gorgeous Walled Garden.
    Our first visit and what a delight. A vast estate owned by the National Trust with plenty for everyone to do. The house was interesting, but for us, the highlight was the Walled Garden - the biggest walled garden I've seen! The planting was wonderful, and you could spend a couple of hours on a nice day in that alone. The size of the grounds, with woods and a lake, mean there are plenty of lovely walks to do, and it's relatively flat. The estate also has four stone carved dragon heads, which are believed to have originally adorned Bishopsgate in the City of London until the gate was demolished in the 1760s. It was a lovely day out.

    A Great Place to Visit
    We really enjoyed our visit to Wallington Hall. Unfortunately, we arrived mid afternoon and the house was shutting, so we only managed a brief look around. The estate is vast, the gardens are beautiful in particular the very large walled garden. For dog owners this is one of the better NT properties, other than the house you can access all other areas. There are a number of lovely walks you can take with your furry friend.

    Interesting Day Out
    Visited Wallington Hall whilst on holiday near Morpeth. The house was very interesting and you can wander around the rooms at your own pace. We also had a walk in the grounds down to the Walled Garden which had a wonderful array of plants and flowers of all colours. Also had coffee and cake/biscuit at an outdoor kiosk which only accepted payment in cash.

    Stunning Walled Garden
    An entire garden layout within this walled area which is sunken into the agricultural landscape. A series of varied garden rooms and water features make this a wonderful garden attraction. A truly colourful Hot Border by the large glasshouse (to be renovated) full of Dahlias is an absolute must!

    Space Filler !
    Whilst touring the area we were looking to fill a few hours so visited this National Trust site. How pleasantly surprised we were with the hall and gardens ? The staff were knowledgeable and eager to please…definitely more than a time filler !

On arrival given excellent advice by staff member "Peter". Lots to see in the house, walled garden and river walk. Definitely worth a visit for the full day out.

Another wonderful day at Wallington. Lovely walk around the beautiful gardens. We normally do the river walk but decided against it due to weather being a bit unpredictable. The only downside was ... there were notices to say the coffee shop in the walled garden would open at 11. We took our lunch down, waited until 11.20 but shop didn't open. So we had our lunch with no drinks. But we did walk back to main cafe and had our cuppa. It didn't spoil our day.

My mum and I had the most lovely afternoon. We were met at the gate by Maureen who was so helpful and friendly. We had a wonderful look around the house where a couple were playing the Northumbrian pipes … what a treat! The gardens are glorious too. A highly recommended day out

Very interesting house. On the day of my visit there was an added bonus in that musicians were playing in the central hall which created a wonderful atmosphere. The grounds are superb with good signposts and waymarked walking routes. Loads of photo opportunities. Totally recommended.

Had a lovely time at Wallington today. We were greeted as soon as we arrived in the visitors center where we were given a map and information about where things are. We first headed towards the wildlife hide where we sat for an hour. We spotted blue tits, great tits, coal tits, goldfinches, a robin, nuthatch, pheasant and a pair of woodpeckers.
We had hoped to see some red squirrels but didn’t see any today.
We then went to have a look around the hall which was lovely and well looked after,
We had hoped to have a pizza but the wait was over half an hour and ideally we wanted to eat it on our way to the walled garden and was pushed for time as it was due to rain after 3pm. We then nipped over to the cafe to see if there was any sandwiches we could take out with us but the queue was really long and couldn’t see what they had to offer as the queues were so long. So instead we opted for an ice cream from the parlour and walked over to the walled gardens. We really enjoyed the gardens. The flowers were beautiful.
We decided to walk along the river walk back to the wildlife hide which took about 30 minutes. We then spent half an hour back in the hide looking at the birds before going back to our car. As soon as we arrived at our car the rain came down and fast! Great timing. We will definitely return even if it’s just to sit in the hide for a couple of hours as there was so much to see.

An absolute gem of a property, unfortunately we didn't get to see much of the grounds due to the weather but that just means that we will return at some point.
The food in the cafe is excellent, some people say it's pricey but not in my opinion, good food is worth paying for.

We are regular and frequent visitors to Wallington all year round.
Yesterday our visit was enjoyable and pleasing viewing the snowdrops and crocus lawns spread out everywhere.

HOWEVER, the blight on the landscape was dog fouling in evidence in several places, on footpaths where it was only a matter of time before someone stood in it.
I don't understand how dog owners think this is acceptable there really is no excuse not to clear-up.

House not open so we walked our dogs in the grounds which was lovely.

Had lunch at the cafe which was disappointing. The squash and butter bean stew was lukewarm and tasteless, completely lacking in any seasoning. My friend had the dall and said it was ok. The cake choice was limited and the victoria type sponge was again not great, heavy, not light and springy and the other items on display didn't look that wonderful. OK, they have a captive audience and the prices aren't extortionate but the bill was nearly £30.00 for 2 lack lustre mains and 2 cakes plus a small coffee. Next time will bring our own.

The NT have this place off to a tee , excellent cafe, walks and plenty to do for the kids , the river walk is a favorite especially walking over the stepping stones , can’t fail to enjoy a day out with the family in the fresh air and a good walk . On wet days or when being raining take either Wellies or boots which you don’t mind getting dirty . Excellent day out one of the best NT places in the NE . Explore and enjoy!
