Wallington Hall, Northumberland is managed by the National Trust

 

Wallington Hall is a country house and gardens located about 12 miles west of Morpeth in the county of  Northumberland, England, near the village of Cambo. Wallington Hall has been owned by the National Trust since 1942, after it was generously donated complete with the estate and farms by Sir Charles Philips Trevelyan, apparently the first donation of its kind. Wallington Hall is a Grade I listed building. The original Wallington Hall estate was owned by the Fenwick family from 1475 until their financial problems caused them to sell their properties to the Blacketts family. Wallington Hall was rebuilt in 1688 around the ancient pele tower house for Sir William Blackett, but was later substantially rebuilt again, in Palladian style, for Sir Walter Blackett by the architect Daniel Garret, before passing to the Trevelyan family in 1777. Charles Philips Trevelyan inherited the property from his father George Otto Trevelyan in 1928. After Pauline Jermyn married the naturalist Sir Walter Calverley Trevelyan, they began hosting literary and scientific figures at the Hall which became quite a cultural centre with visitors including members of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Wallington Hall is set in 100 acres of rolling parkland, the estate includes a wooded dene (valley), ornamental lakes, lawns, and the recently refurbished walled garden. Alongside the beautifully furnished interior, attractions inside Wallington Hall include the desk where Thomas Babington Macaulay, brother-in-law of the notorious Sir Charles Edward Trevelyan, wrote his History of England, a large collection of antique dollshouses and eight murals in the central hall depicting the history of Northumberland, painted by William Bell Scott. The National Trust also own the whole of the estate of Wallington Hall including several farms.
