Cambo is a village in Northumberland, England. It is about 11 miles (18 km) to the west of the county town of Morpeth at the junction of the B6342 and B6343 roads, in the County Parish of Wallington Demesne. The village was gifted along with the Wallington Estate to the National Trust by Sir Charles Philips Trevelyan in 1942, the first donation of its kind. It remains a National Trust village.[1]

There is a village school, Cambo First School, which had 46 pupils in September 2020 aged 4-9 years.[2] There is a church, a village hall and a community orchard in the village.

Notable people[edit]

Capability Brown, the 18th-century landscape gardener, was educated at the village school. He was born at nearby Kirkharle.
