Just come back from a week in Northumberland and spent a day at Cragside. Had a great day. The house and gardens are beautiful and well kept. We found the staff helpful and very knowledgeable. A must if you are up that way.

Spent half a day here on the way through. The house and gardens are well looked after and very interesting, with knowledgable and friendly staff. We would have liked more time to explore the paths through the estate, maybe another time. Definitely worth a return visit

On this occasion we only had time for the grounds but that didn't matter. We were still rewarded. After a lovely lunch we walked for a couple of hours in the amazing grounds. We then did the 4 mile estate drive which took us right to the top of the crags to the incredible rock pavement. A revisit is a... More

This is one of the biggest National Trust Estates we have ever visited, with wonderful formal gardens, adventure and picnic areas surrounding an amazing house with such a family history.

Beautiful house and grounds. Staff so very helpful especially if you have limited mobility. They really can't do enough to help you make the most of your experience. The drive around the lakes is breathtaking and I would imagine even more so when the rhododendrons are in bloom. Also took advantage of the National Trust as even in one day... More

This is a simply wonderful place. The House is a very interesting Victorian building, with some very fine rooms. It is a pity the art is a bit woeful in places, but the original collection was sold many years ago so the NT is not to blame for that! The gardens are in excellent condition, and really well presented, and... More

We have recently become members of National Trust and decided one of the first places we wanted to go was Cragside. Friends had told us it was worth the trip and they weren't wrong! The scenery is fantastic and the house extremely interesting. The story of Lord Armstrong is also very interesting, from sickly child to 90 year old inventor... More
