This trust property despite its position on the side of a steep hill is remarkably wheelchair accessible. There is a golf cart to take people from the various car parks to all the main parts of the site and you can drive around the rest of the estate in your own car. There are various outbuildings on the site which... More

The NT have not just preserved this house as a piece of Victorian history but have improved it in a way which it's former owner would have, I'm sure, been very pleased. The house was the home of William Armstrong, and his wife, a great engineer and inventor with a string of firsts to his name, many of which are... More

Gardens, walks and activities were fantastic. Add to that the incredible house with all its wonderful history and it is a great day out for everyone. I love it and visit often. The children love it and very much enjoy the playground. Best place ever for a picnic.

A wonderful house set in fabulous grounds; a visit can easily take up a full day if the weather is good as the grounds are quite extensive. The house is bursting with history and offers great insight into a bygone era. The courtyard tea room offers good menu choice and wholesome freshly prepared food. Agreed that the entrance fee may...

The views in the estate rival those of Canada--especially the view across Tumbleton Lake. The restaurant offers a varied menu of snacks and there's plenty of room to sit and enjoy he beautiful surroundings

This was a very interesting place to visit although very wet on our day. It is set in a very picturesque place nestling into the side of the Crag...hence the name. It is described as a cottage when first built but with its extensions and development over the years it is very large with many interesting aspects. its main claim... More

A beautiful house and gardens with so much to see and do; interesting exhibitions and the history of electricity. I have been so many times I have lost count, the grounds are so extensive and accessible. A great day out!

We visited Cragside on the occasion of Mrs F's 30th and despite being a little put off by the cost, we were pleasantly surprised at the extent of the whole property. The grounds themselves have a six mile drive around them and at various points you are able to get out and wander through the woodland, around the various lakes... More

This is by far the best N.T. property we have ever visited. It is worth joining the N.T. for this place alone. We are so lucky to have Cragside in our part of the country. The house , gardens , estate drive etc. are magnificent and it would take a few visits to do it all justice. As with most... More
