what a lovely house.

The house and gardens were brilliant could stay all day. But you have to be very fit because there is a lot of walking to do

the house and gardens are exceptional and the six mile wooded drive through the estate caps off a great day out

Great to walk around grounds and gardens with a three year old. House was fantastic too. We were National Trust members so free for us. Fantastic playground on way out round the grounds worth the short drive as a a pass gorgeous lake.

We were re visiting Cragside after a good number of years and it didn't disappoint However, on the Tuesday it was only open from 1pm and was extremely busy and this really was a nuisance as one couldn't see everything.

We intended to have lunch and took one look at the queue which was snaking out in to the courtyard and went back to the car and drove in to Rothbury where we parked and found The Elm Tree cafe where we had excellent food and service. Well worth a visit.

First of all I would like to comment to those who have said a visit is expensive. It is my opinion that the National Trust price a day ticket so high to encourage visitors to sign up for a yearly subscription. They don't expect you to pay such an inflated price for a day ticket. Buy a yearly pass and... More

We are members of National Trust so did not have to pay car parking fees or entrance fees. We visited on spring Bank holiday so it was very busy. We parked in the upper car park next to the information kiosk which was about 100meters from the main house, ideal if you are just visiting the house. Our tour started... More
