Lovely and very interesting day out

This is an excellent day out, even when the rhodedendrons are not in bloom. There is plenty to see and do both inside and out.

Doesn't take credit or debit cards to pay for admission, supposedly to speed up the entry process - if they spent less time talking and more time getting on with the job in hand, every one would benefit. Typical National Trust who again seem to think they know better than everyone else and they have the nerve to charge you... More

Visited here on Friday 31st July, absolutely blown away with how beautiful and interesting the house is, unfortunately we spent so long in the house we didn't have time to explore the gardens which looked outstanding. We didn't realise how big the grounds were so it definitely deserves another visit. I would recommend if you are going to visit Cragside... More

I had been looking forward to visiting crag side for a long time and was not disappointed. We arrived at 10 30am (the house opens at 11) so drove slowly around the 6 mile perimeter road which gives views of specimen trees, lakes and so on. We were advised that the house can be very busy at opening time so... More

We pulled up and it was £80 for garden and house entry, they don't have a cash machine so we had to go into rothbury to the nearest cash point and come back. Upon return I asked how much a family membership would be to the national trust and it was... More

An amazing place you definately need to visit. Very family friendly with lots for the children to do. We visited Cragside on a sunny day in July and were rewarded by breathtaking scenery and engineering feats. The drive to Cragside is very picturesque and when you arrive here is plenty to see and do. There are some uphill walks but... More

Lovely place to visit. Walked over a mile from the main car park with my 3year old to the play area, only to discover a car park right next to it. So be aware there are many car parks around the surroundings.

This house is very interesting. It is 100 years ahead of it's time. The original owner was a brillaint man who added electricity, Turkish baths, hot and cold water in the 19th century. My tip would be to visit this house and Bambourgh Castle as the same owner made his remarkable mark on both

A fantastic house set within a stunning environment. You can definitely spend all day in the house and the extensive grounds and discover what forethought Armstrong had. Shame link with Bamburgh Castle is not developed.
