From entering gates to leaving staff very well organised, it was very busy due to Easter treats for children. Grounds are superb and well laid out with lots of trails of varying lengths including a maze. Cafes and shop available and toilets dotted around the varying car parks. The formal gardens are stunning with fabulous views of the house. Cragside... More

Loved the gardens could have spent hours walking around those alone. House itself is very interesting & the information in all the rooms is well presented. Only downsides, I thought £17 for each adult was a bit steep & borderline whether it's worth this amount. Second point is the price & quality of the coffee in the cafe near the... More

I arrived with family and was told they couldn't take card payment . I would have had to have nearly £80 in cash ! I had to turn round and drive to the nearest town to get money .... in 2017 ?! Once inside I loved the old house and there are beautiful grounds to explore . If you don't... More

Stunning house and gardens set in a beautiful landscape in Northumberland. The interior of the house is the real star of the show and offers a wealth of fascinating interiors. Staff are well versed and happy to help with all questions. Make sure to check out the grand marble fire place! A must-see

Visited here yesterday as I've just joined the National Trust for a year. What a spectacular place. My daughter, who's 12 and at that moody stage loved it. It made her feel free and I saw her climbing things and running and just being 12! The cafe is wonderful, as is the food and the staff wherever you go are... More

We were on holiday in Northumberland and were looking for somewhere to explore with our dog and this was perfect. We are members of the National Trust for Scotland so got free entry. The staff were all friendly and helpful, we were issued with a general map at the entrance and there were lots of individual walk maps at the... More

Took another set of visitors here to see both house and gardens. The house is worthy of a visit in its own right and at least 1-1.1/2hrs should be set aside for this alone. Outside, the rhododendrons are best viewed in June as the season is later up here. That said the grounds and picnic areas are havens at any... More

Taking advantage of the free heritage weekend we visited Cragside. I'd seen impressive photos of the grounds but had never been. Upon arriving we explored the lower section if you like before embarking on the estate drive. We explored the gardens and the streams before heading up to the house. Picturesque views set with a backdrop of the Northumberland hills.... More

With three kids (1, 3 & 5) we started with the Easter hunt around the lake, followed by a picnic. Then walked to the formal garden and had a lie down in the sun and a game of hide and seek. Then walked through the trees, across the iron bridge to the house. For 50 pence the kids toured the... More
