Parking tip. The upper car park allows parking near to the house. This is a distance from the visitors centre and main cafe. Alternatively park closer to the visitors centre and then drive t the house to collect passengers. Drive around grounds is superb. House...More

We thought the setting was pretty special as we arrived at the parking area, but nothing prepared us for what we saw as we walked the short distance to the house. The gorgeous elevation of Cragside was almost dwarfed by the Californian Redwood trees and...More

Drove up on a beautiful day just to visit the cafe with our 4-legged friend. We hadn't realised we'd have to pay for the privilege (entry £11 each for gardens and woodland). Luckily for us, common sense prevailed and the kind man at the entrance...More

I spend an very enjoyable few hours wondering the grounds. The first thing to note is that you can only pay by cash on arrival at Cragside. The tearooms and the shop in the house have card facilities. Secondly I would advise that you wear...More

We visited the house, toured the estate and visited the formal garden. Ran out of time, so missed the rock garden, and would have loved to do a longer walk in the estate - there's a lot to see and do here!

They are certainly allowed in the surrounding grounds and the area around the cafe and visitor centre, they're not allowed in the house obviously! 🐶

It is in a difficult sort of way. The whole site is on a steep hill which doesn't help. The house is narrow corridors and stairwells, alternative lifts etc in place. The estate drive is parkland but again with hills. The... More
