This was a fascinating house and gardens, with lots of information about the lawyer/scientist who owned it, creating the first hydropowered home, which has been renewed and is used now. Unlike many places, you can spend all day here. There is a 6 mile drive round the edge of the estate with stop off points for walks including a huge... More

Visited during half term with our two children (aged 8 & 10). Wow! One of the best National Trust properties we have visited and well worth the drive from Manchester. The shear scale of the grounds and the variety of areas was fantastic. The house itself was amazing and there are lots for both children and adults over the 1000... More

Stunning house in absolutely magnificent grounds. The history of the proeprty along with the manner in which it is presented must make this one of the National Trusts most popular Victorian properties. The visitor can really imagine the property in its heyday and the antiques on display are world class. And then the grounds ..... incredible.

Went here while on a short break in the area. So glad we did. Spent about four hours walking round the different areas. Everywhere clean and well kept. The house was interesting to wonder round. Would definately return if in the area

This has to be one of the most beautiful enjoyable places I've ever visited. The house and volunteers are amazing and interesting. The gardens are well kept and change throughout the year. I can't wait to return

Our kids bought us National Trust memberships for Christmas and this was our first outing. Cragside is an amazing place with over one hundred rooms, beautiful gardens and extensive grounds.Highly recommended.

We visited today and had a lovely time. The house was in a bit of disaray as it had been used over the winter break by a film crew, but still lots to see and all the staff were polite and had great knowledge of the house and its history. We drove round to the play area for our picnic,... More

Took my two sons one of which is disabled. I was expecting to pay for the kids and my entrance would be free as a carer. However the lovely man on the gate gave us free entry. Just to note they only accept cash on entry but the gift shop cafe etc all take cards. Didn't really look much at... More
