Home of the brilliant Victorian inventor and industrialist Lord Armstrong.
A visit to the National Trust’s Cragside, home of the brilliant Victorian inventor and industrialist Lord Armstrong, is a must if you’re staying at The Hog’s Head Inn.
The first house in the world to be lit by hydroelectricity, Cragside is one of the most technologically advanced homes of the Victorian age and is crammed full of ingenious gadgets – many of them still working!
Take in Cragside’s amazing gardens, including one of the largest rock gardens in Europe. Children will love the adventure play area and exploring Nelly’s Labyrinth, a network of paths and tunnels cut out of a vast area of rhododendron forest.
