Unfortunately the house is closed for winter so we didn't get to go round but the gardens are still open and by what we could see they are superb but again we didn't explore because it was getting dark. We did however visit the excellent café and gift shop. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Will definitely be going... More

This is a must see visit. Great historical site, with significance in engineering terms. The house and gardens are beautiful and the walks are spectacular.

A fantastic house set within a stunning environment. You can definitely spend all day in the house and the extensive grounds and discover what forethought Armstrong had.

Grand stately home set in it's own gardens which are large enough that there is a drive round available. One negative is the amount of insects that swarmed the car whenever we stopped under trees, but hey - this is the country people. Also poor phone signal (not on 4G mind). Food is available, but slightly on the pricey side.... More

What a stunning place. Could spend 2 or 3 days exploring. The formal gardens and rock gardens alone are worth the visit but the highlight is the drive round the estate. Will be back in May to revisit as it will be even more impressive with flowers!!

This has to be one of the jewels in the National Trust's crown. I visit most years and always find new things of interest, and there is something for everyone here. The house is set in fabulous grounds, with much to explore, from formal gardens to a vast estate accessed by an estate drive, with great views of the stunning... More

An amazing house and gardens. Second only to Rothschilds Waddesdon Manor as an example of the incredible wealth generated in the Victorian period. (And William Armstrong's second house was Bamburgh Castle).

This is one of the most interesting NT houses I have visited. It is not as old as many others but the history of the house and the man who had it built it more than make up for it. The information provided is well presented. The grounds are extensive so you need to allow plenty of time if you... More

A really interesting house to visit that seems to be ever expanding when you are inside. You get to see both the upstairs and downstairs, together with all of the ingenious gadgets. Its not just the house though - the grounds are huge and lovely - there's a drive, that takes about 20 minutes enabling you to drive round the... More
