Cragside is bound up with Rothbury. Mention one and the other always comes up. At Cragside itself there are
three main things to do.
1. Follow the Armstrong trail which connects the car parks to the house itself, but in a round about way.
2. Take a guided tour around the house.
3. Drive through the courtyard and on to the Cragside lakes.
Its also worth mentioning that down at the bottom of the estate, close to the lower car park is another lake and
tea shop with books, gifts and food and drink.

To get to the miles of beautiful country walks and drives you need to take your car through the central
courtyard of the house.
