What a beautiful place to visit. We went along with our dog and spent the whole day there. The house is wonderful, but the grounds are spectacular. We are National Trust members, so got in free and I must admit, I thought the entry prices were very steep without membership - so if you go, plan to spend a few... More

How anyone could have had the foresight and money to create this masterpiece on the hill side and make it so interesting, beautiful, awe inspiring beggars belief. You could send a whole week here and still not see all the buildings and gardens in their glory. Wow comes close to describing this Nat Trust wonder.

Lovely house and very interesting, particularly to those interested in electricity. Very large grounds ideal if you like walking and picnicking.

Like the previous reviewer we too felt that this was one of the best, if not THE best National Trust property we have been to. We are members of the national trust and were visiting the area for a few days camping with the family (2 adults, 3 children aged 11,11 and 8). We took our bikes as the info... More

This has to be one of the best National Trust properties that we have visited. It has everything.A wonderful old house filled with furniture of the period. Impressive gardens and a great circular drive with numerous stop off points for a picnic if that is you choice. The house is even more interesting given the fact that it was one... More

Cragside is the most beautiful National Trust property. There is more there to see that we could manage in a day. I would recommend this place most highly to anyone visiting the north east.

I tried to pay for my entrance to the Estate with my credit card as I had been travelling around was a bit short of cash and had not found a cash point. They didn't accept cards either at the entrance to the estate or at the house when I wanted to buy a guide book. I had to wait... More

Have visited a couple of times and it really gives a sense of grandeur. The whole house is very impressive and the layout makes it seem like everything was just left as it was all those years ago. It really reflects the time period very well. Staff seem very knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

Living only 25miles from Cragside and being National Trust members we visit several times a year, usually to walk in the extensive grounds and at least 1visit to this comfortable house. If you go in June to see the rhododendrons make sure you take your midget cream. I marvel at each visit what a visionary Lord Armstrong was when he... More

Lovely gardens and scenery . The house is a treasure trove of Victorian electrical invention. The National Trust Volunteers are as always excellent.
