Fabulous house and architecture, loads of history and would appeal to those who like a bit of science with their culture. Set in acres of woodland and beautiful landscape and gardens to explore, though you would have to be able bodied to appreciate a lot of the gardens. We had a wonderful lunch in the cafe that consisted of homemade... More

So much to do here for everyone that you could easily spend a couple of days here. The house is really interesting; there are information cards and staff in each room and so it is easy to stroll around at your own pace; the woods and gardens are beautiful but also give children the chance to have a run around...

Had a fantastic time here, all aspects of the trip were a pleasure and we would happily return there for more. The house was very interesting and quirky. The cafe and shop lovely. The grounds really fascinating and so well laid out with a feeling of adventuring. Would be a great place to take children.

The house is really interesting, we have visited many times before, there is always something to see. the power house is... More

This is by far one of the best places we have visited in a long time, there is so much to do you can visit time and time again and not have to do the same thing twice. We are national trust members which I would recommend, the prices on the gateway look expensive, but when you realise the scale... More

I've been to Cragside many times since I was a child, now visiting with my own children. There is something enchanting about the whole place. The volunteers are lovely, friendly and helpful. One of my favourite places.

We spent several hours here. The house itself is fascinating with its contents all original thanks to the generosity of the Armstrong family now residing at Banborough castle. Room after room ( there seems tone no end to this place) full of beautiful paintings and artefacts. Everything culminates in the amazing drawing room with is quite staggering fireplace. Views from...

I was a National Trust member but even so a day visit is good value. We did a super 3 mile walk which was well way marked and with superb views over the scenic countryside. The House is very interesting and the story of the Armstrong rise and how he spent his fortune is absorbing. Then there is the cafe... More
