  • 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.
  • Little lovely museum in beautiful English countryside with exceptional tea room.
  • 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!
  • We often go for a walk and end up here. It's a lovely little tea room with lovely staff. The birthplace itself is just one room big but there's a lot of info in it and the staff are great.
