Cragside – Northumberland

Hello lovelies, sorry it’s been a while I’ve been ubber busy with work.

I visited Cragside recently and it’s beautiful. I’ve never been before and I’m a massive fan of exploring somewhere new.ย  Cragside is a country house in the civil parish of Cartington, near Rothbury in Northumberland, England. It was the first house in the world to be lit using hydroelectric power. Built into a rocky hillside above a forest garden of just under 1,000 acres, it was the country home of armaments manufacturer, Lord Armstrong, and has been in the care of the National Trust since 1977. The property was eventually opened to the public in 1979.

Here are some of my photo’s, hope you like them ๐Ÿ™‚

Cragside did have gardens but tbh they weren’t that great but the view from here was beautiful. As the day went on the sun decided to whip on it’s hat and come out and play, and it was super lovely.

I seem to have a thing at the moment for capturing nature at it’s best I mean the photo of the butterfly is one of my all time faves.

I had a really lovely day here and if you are from up North like me then you should definitely check it out. You do have to pay to get in as it is part of The ย National Trust, but it really is a beautiful place.

If you have been here or have any suggestions let me know, I’d love to hear them ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you for reading xxx
