Read all about it! We've used our creative license to write up a few news articles about some of the colourful characters behind the places we look after in the North East & Yorkshire. They're based on true stories and include tales of kidnap, a marriage of the utmost convenience, the extravagant lifestyle of an industrialist and the socialist who gave his estate to the nation.
After a summer of salads, it's time to tuck into something a bit more substantial. We love autumn harvest time as it means our chefs start to cook up some delicious and warming comfort food. From soups and stews with dumplings to apple and cinnamon scones and singing hinnies oozing with butter. Who can resist?
A must see this year is Cragside's new art exhibition Lux. There are seven artworks to see that reflect the importance of light and innovation at Cragside. Some very stunning pieces.
