Had a great surprises going to cragside. A few miles from Rothbury in Northumberland. £15 each to get in but so much to see. The gardens are huge but to see a lot of them you had a steps to go down and long walks. The house was amazing. So much these. The biggest marble inglenook I have ever seen.... More

Absolutely beautiful. The estate drive is a must, you even get to drive through the archway of the house. Lovely easy drive with lots of places you will want to stop and take in the views. I had my toddler in the pushchair and older son. We parked at the first car park at the lower tier and walked to... More

This was my first visit to Cragside, and I must say I was completely blown away house and gardens. Given that I live on Tyneside, I cannot understand why I have not visited sooner. What is good 1) Getting in very easy, car greeted by staff and a quick briefing given on what to see, where to eat and parking.... More

A really interesting place with something for all ages. Adventure playground, Victorian house, garden and woodland walks, tea shop, labyrinth, Archimedes screw. We spent a full day here. The house is more interesting than most stately homes. The gardens consist of large rambling rock gardens that you can walk through, formal flower gardens, woodland trails some with sculptures and exercise... More

Not that bothered about country houses normally, but this one was surprisingly interesting. The gardens were also spectacular. One tip - try to arrive early and explore the gardens before the house is open and before the thousands of other visitors arrive.

As a National Trust member we enjoyed a lovely afternoon there. The house is fantastic and gardens are incredible. We will certainly be going back as we only saw half of the grounds.

One of the best NT properties we've visited to date. The house on it's own would be well worth a visit but when combined with the extensive grounds and superbly maintained gardens it becomes a "not to be missed" visit. There's a wealth of information in the House regarding the history of the property and it's original owner. You could... More

Second Visit to house and gardens and still more to explore. For us it was a full day out we arrived just after 10.30 the gardens open at 10 (The house opens at 11) and we left the grounds at about 15.00. The house and gardens can both be shut sometimes on a Monday so check the website. We are... More

This was the biggest National Trust property we have been to . And I agree if your not NT members then it does seem expensive . But there is so much to do and so many walks .We did the "gun" walk which took us about 3 hours with fantastic views. Thehouse was very interesting to and the volunteers very... More
