A truly spectacular National Trust property and estate. We've visited lots of NT properties but this is now one of our favourites. Great for sights, food and lovely walks. If you're in the area give it a go!

Visited last Summer and it was a great day out. Wonderful walks around the grounds and the lake is stunning. Excellent play areas and cafe dotted around and there's lots to do for the kids (all under 10). Minor point - I parked my 2.2 petrol car in an unmarked electric charging bay (wasn't signed) and some tree-hugger left a... More

This was my second visit to Cragside and I wasn't disappointed. The house itself is amazing but the grounds are spectacular. Even children would enjoy exploring the gardens, it really does have something for everybody. I hope to return again and again

We visited Northumberland for the first time and decided to visit Cragside. We loved it! Something different to see around each corner. I was quite overcome with the beauty of the area. We only had time to explore a little of this vast estate but look gorward to coming back another time. We only wish we lived nearer to make... More

Love Cragside. Brought the puppy for her first visit and because entry is free all half term, we didn't have to waste money on a relatively short visit. Tea rooms were very slow but that didn't detract from the experience.

We live locally and love to visit this gem in the heart of Northumberland's countryside. The house and gardens were free for our visit but we have been enticed to rejoin the National Trust for the new season. The house is great with different things to see and do on each visit. This time there was a bug hunt for... More

Something for everyone. The house is really well maintained and so very interesting. Explanations on objects are well laid out and not "stuffy". The grounds are huge and beautiful, either enjoy walking the well laid out paths or drive the route around stopping to admire the views. The ataff, mainly volunteers, are very friendly and knowledgable with the exhibits being... More

A fantastic place to visit especially with children. This amazing place takes you back to the past. The house is just as it was in the olden days with so many novice items run on water power to help the servants. A great place to learn in a great way even for the older generation

This fascinating piece of history built and run by northern philanthropist Armstrong offers something for everyone. You could spend all day driving the extensive grounds even take time to picnic on a good day, however it is the house which will attract most. Purported to be the first house lit by hydro electricity it takes you several steps back into... More

Wow what an amazing house and garden. We had a great day here, there was so much to do and see. It was really good value for a full family day out.
