The Garden Guide

Cragside House, Garden and Grounds

A great Victorian house and garden, built by a wealthy engineer, Lord Armstrong. The house was designed by Norman Shaw, in 1870 , and is well named. It overlooks the Debdon Valley and is surrounded by rocks and woods. The garden is being restored by the National Trust. There are rock gardens, a rustic bridge, a Clock Tower and a walled garden with terraces, grotttoes, a canal and 40 miles of footpaths. The scenery is picturesque.
