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

I did not ow much about Cragside before we went but it's actually fascinating! The electricity is all hydro-electric and was was ahead of its time! The history of the place is so interesting and really for everyone! The gardens are spectacular, sadly I couldn't manage them as it is hacked out of a cliff and really steep. My husband... More

A truly beautiful and interesting place to spend the day. The house itself is fascinating and the grounds are outstanding. There is a lovely cafe and visitor shop too. One of my favourite places to visit.

Spent a lovely day visiting Cragside in October. There is so much to see a day isn't really long enough. The history behind the house is remarkable. A must see while visiting Northumberland

So many early inventions in use here - Hydroelectric power for one. It's a fascinating old house with so many technical innovations for the machanically/ electrically minded. Worth a visit for the house alone but the grounds are stunning too and well worth spending time on.
