Wallington is a country house and gardens located about 12 miles (19 km) west of Morpeth, Northumberland, England, near the village of Cambo. It has been owned by the National Trust since 1942, after it was donated complete with the estate and farms by Sir Charles Philips Trevelyan, the first donation of its kind. It is a Grade I listed building.

The estate was owned by the Fenwick family from 1475 until their
financial problems caused them to sell their properties to the
Blacketts. The hall house was rebuilt in 1688 around the ancient pele
tower house for Sir William Blackett and was later substantially
rebuilt again, in Palladian style, for Sir Walter Blackett by
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.
