Not many superlatives can do justice to this truly amazing place from the House which is an education in itself to the lovely 6 mile Forest drive around the estate it is magnificent A lot of time and money has been invested in improving facilities so there are now ample car parking spaces and places to picnic When we visited...

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

The weather was pleasant when we decided to visit so it was a lovely day. The grounds were fantastic and enjoyed walking around with the kids. The house in the grounds was also fantastic and interesting, the whole family enjoyed it. We didn't manage to get to the labyrinth due to the rain. We will definitely be visiting again. We... More

The National Trust have done a great job in looking after this place. It is special. There is so much to see and do and with over forty miles of marked trails you can just walk and walk amongst trees and rocks. As ever food from the cafe is a bit steep in price but this is a National Trust... More

It's national trust, so it's expensive unless you're a member. The walks are very nice, and the house and armstrong exhibitions are good too.

What an amazing place! We thoroughly enjoyed it here - adults, children and the dog alike! The house was fascinating, and the grounds incredible. The walk to the lovely play area from the house was steep in parts, but exciting, and perfectly climbable for 5 and overs! (not pushchairs though..) The food was scrummy, and the house, shop and restaurant... More

Loved it! Had an amazing day with our 5 year old daughter, so much to do and see, views breathtaking. The house is really interesting, lots of rooms to see, our daughter enjoyed the children's trail which is a great way to keep her entertained. There are miles of walks or you can drive to different areas. Our highlights were... More

Only reason haven't given this 5 out of 5 is purely the cost for the house and gardens you have to pay over £15 which is somewhat steep, however the house really shows the wealth of the family at this time (as does the vast estate) and is well worth a visit. If you lived closer it would be worth... More
