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.

Visitor information

There are picnic areas around the cottage.
