House is closed. You can only view the building from the outside. You park in Wylam and walk down the wagon way to the house.

Single room, not much to see, but the context of living next to a railway line was interesting. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly, and the walk from the car park along the old railway line next to the river was pleasant.
We call here on one of our walks, always friendy and helpful, Cafe' run by volunteers and very handy for a cup of tea & a sarnie!
