An absolute amazing B&B with fabulous short and longer term stay options both catered and self catered. The site is on the original Cragside Estate and you are in a beautiful and well kept rural setting with ample options to explore, walk, nature watch, eat or just relax.
Lou and Shaun have renovated the rooms and buildings sympathetically maintaining old and quirky features whilst giving them elegance and modern comfort.
Every time I stay I feel like I am at home and the only down side is having to leave.
Tips for other travellers: Cragside National Trust offers a full day out that you can repeat time and time again. Nice local shops, crafts and cafes are available in Rothbury and other local villages and Alnwick is a short drive away offering an even greater choice of shops and restaurants with a fantastic addition of the Alnwick garden, the amazing treehouse restaurant (do book in advance) and pretty little seaside Jaunts.

Exceptional historical farm accommodation with welcoming hosts. Beautifully restored farm in rural location just around the corner from Cragside. Lovely extra large bed in huge bedroom. Great fresh breakfast. Fantastic hosts, Lou and Shaun who really could not have done more to make us feel welcome. Just sorry we weren't able to stay longer!

B from Co.Durham Armstrong Wing

Lou and Shaun were extremely hospitable and welcoming. We were given clear directions and advice. The accommodation surpassed expectations and we were very comfortable. The history of the place is fascinating and our hosts were happy to share information. Cragend Grange is in a beautiful location and we are keen to return soon. Highly recommended.
