Stay in a cottage built by an amazing Victorian inventor

Rothbury, Northumberland

Experience Cragside in Northumberland as many have never seen it before – by staying in the spectacular and dramatic grounds of the Cragside Estate.

Cragside House, Gardens and Estate is a truly unique attraction in the heart of Northumberland that’s perfect for relaxing holidays. Near Rothbury, Cragside was the family home of Lord Armstrong, the amazing Victorian inventor and landscape genius.

Cragside Cottages cater perfectly to group holidays, offering the perfect base for discovering Cragside and the surrounding area. With your own private entrance and easy access to the formal gardens and hilly woodland, you can enjoy the estate when everyone else has gone home.

Thirty miles of footpaths and lakeside walks, a rhododendron maze, waterfall and rock garden will ensure you never run out of areas to explore. After all this fresh country air, relax in luxury with stunning views of the Coquet Valley and Simonside Hills.

Also, deep in the heart of the Rhodedendron Labyrinth, discover the Musical Box installation which reflects the spirit of Cragside House, Gardens and Estate. Formed from a converted treehouse, the Musical Box is a result of a collaboration between a variety of artists to produce an unexpected installation based on Lord Armstrong’s passion for energy and electricity. Let your imagination loose.
