We aren't NT members so it cost a bit to get in but it was well worth it. We made the mistake of not going too early as the house didn't open until 1pm. You really do need a full day here to see everything this wonderful place has to offer. The gardens and lake are wonderful. I would suggest... More

Went with our two children aged 6 and 9 and had a brilliant time out. There are plenty of walks to do on the estate and the house was impressive with loads of information about the residents and the building and works of the house. For those with children I recommend the play area and the maze which you can... More

Everything about Cragside is fascinating, from the house, the bridge, gardens and little places hidden away. Go and see for yourself, you won't be disappointed.

wonderful welcoming stately home. As always the guides were full of interesting information, even though it was the end of the day. A leisurely drive around the perimeter of the park land is a must

We really enjoyed our day at Cragside. The house was very informative with a good bit of history and some amazing art work. The grounds were very spacious with sign posts a plenty! My children loved the maze although I found it a bit boring as it was so big, the kids also loved the "adventure" play area. The food... More

I love Crageside, this was my second visit and my mum's first. The house is so interesting and the National Trust staff so knowledgeable, linking the family history of other local places. Truely beautiful grounds - worth many visits - ill definitely be back for another visit The tea rooms are good, we treated ourselves to an afternoon tea which... More

Being keen on engineering I have long wanted to see Armstrong's home. He was gadget-mad, even by modern standards but above all he knew how to pick the site for his home in the first place. This place is beyond my expectations, House 10/10, Gardens and landscape 10/10. Something for everyone 10/10. The house was ahead of its time and... More

After reading some of the reviews I feel we have been amazingly lucky (twice) as after walking from the car park to the house we were able to walk straight in, no queuing. All the rooms were well lit with sufficient information for my wife to explain thing to her mother (neither born in Britain). The rock garden was stunning... More

Returning from Scotland, we stopped overnight in Rothbury, spending the afternoon at Cragside. We'd visited on the same trip last year and wanted to see it again. In the event, we never made the house! We decided that we would walk from the car park up to the higher lakes. We had forgotten that it was called Cragside for a... More

What an unusual and interesting house! Loved it! Innovative, interesting and made me want to know more about Mr Armstrong! The guides were all knowledgeable and happy to chat. Suggest doing the house first and getting in early as it was quite difficult to get into some rooms and see things when it was busy. The grounds are extensive and... More
