We spotted children enjoying their visit with a hunt for items of interest which they appeared to be enjoying. Staff on site full of knowledge and enjoyed filling you in on the house and Armstrong history. Gardens and scenery magnificent. We had lunch... More

The house is amazing bursting with the technology of the Victorian era. The surrounding gardens and scenic drive up to the man made lakes is a real bonus with picnic spots and walks amongst the rhododendrans and pines. You will feel refreshed after breathing in some of the freshest air in England....go on smokers find out what you've been missing... More

This is a gem. Parked car away from main car park and was able to enjoy the estate drive around the site. Parked car, and enjoyed a long cross cross walk towards the house. Some paths are more direct but with plenty to see we took a longer walk. House is amazing. You understand how important the house and it's... More

What a place (especially with perfect blue skies on Good Friday - see photos). The grounds are brilliant and so well kept. The house is just out of this world and is a fantastic piece of history restored and protected by the National Trust. Add to that the private gardens, lakes, clock tower and 40 miles of walks and this... More

As a Northumbrian I'm a bit biased.Cragside is one of those 'must see ' places in Northumberland. I've been many times and never tire of the ever changing grounds. It is especially worth a visit when the rhododendrons and azaleas are in bloom. As said in other reviews, the National Trust café is expensive, plenty places to picnic though ,... More
