Reviews and comments on Wallington Hall


Wonderful National Trust property. A fabulous mansion set in beautiful parkland with miles of walks, woodland, wildlife hide, ponds and a stunning hidden walled garden. The house contains pre-Raphelite paintings and a collection of dolls houses.
The National Trust describes it thus, "Dating from 1688, the house was home to many generations of the Blackett and Trevelyan families, who all left their mark. The restrained Palladian exterior gives way to the magnificent rococo plasterwork of the interior, which houses fine ceramics, paintings, needlework and a collection of dolls' houses. The Central Hall was decorated to look like an Italian courtyard, heavily influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites, with a series of scenes of Northumbrian history by William Bell Scott. The original formality of Sir Walter Blackett's 18th-century landscape, influenced by 'Capability' Brown, who went to school in the estate village, underlies the present surroundings. There are walks through a variety of lawns, shrubberies and woodland, enlivened with water features, lakes, buildings, sculpture and a wildlife hide. The beautiful walled garden has varied collections of plants and a well-stocked conservatory. Longer estate walks encompass wooded valleys and high moorland, including land around the recently reacquired Folly at Rothley Castle. "
A must see for any visitors to the region.

We've been there many times.....the house is lovely and feels "lived in" unlike some other National Trust properties!!! We particularly like the walled garden and love the walk past the pond/lake where you can get close to the water's edge and watch the ducks and coots etc.,...I might even have some pics; we visited there quite recently.
