This picturesque cottage was the birthplace of Thomas Bewick.
Bewick (1753-1828) was Northumberland's great artist-naturalist and the father of wood-engraving. A nearby 19th-century farmhouse, the later home of the Bewick family, houses an exhibition on the artist's life and work. There are splendid views over the Tyne Valley.
Visitors can also enjoy the cottage gardens, farmyard and paddock walk.
Look out for The Wild Escape at museums and galleries in the next few months. Many have special events, or you can use our audio introduction to help children get involved at any cultural venue.
