Cheeseburn | Essential Visitor Information 

Cheeseburn is a registered charity. It's free to visit but there is a recommended donation of £5 per adult. Please bring cash only as cards are not accepted/are temperamental. You can buy cakes, drinks, salads and snacks during open days so bring plenty of cash for that.

Picnics, ball games and dogs are not allowed within the sculpture gardens but you can take a picnic to enjoy in the adjoining field near the car park. Personally, I'd rather buy a slice of cake/sausage roll/salad onsite as they're delicious and it's a nice way to show your support. 

Parking is FREE and Cheeseburn's postcode is NE18 0PT (on Stamfordham Road B6324)

Is Cheeseburn Child-friendly? 

Although you can't take balls, there's no play park and you're not allowed a picnic inside the grounds, we found Cheeseburn to be super child-friendly for all ages. The staff/volunteers were very welcoming and provided our children with a garden trail to complete. We visited in 2018 with a 2-year-old, 7-year-old, 9-year-old and 12-year-old and they all really enjoyed it. The gardens are filled with so many different sculptures to look at ranging from objects above your head, objects hidden in the forest, mirrors, water features and more. It really is impressive and there are lots of talking points. The garden takes around 60 minutes to walk around, most routes are accessible (and there are detours if not) and the 2-year-old in our group managed the walking just fine. There's lots of space to run around too Take a peek at our video below to get an idea of what to expect:
