Outdoor family fun
With 1,000 acres of land, an Adventure Play Area and a Labyrinth, get out and about in the great outdoors at Cragside
Adventure Play Area
Featuring a zipline, slide, climbing frame, and more, stop off at Crozier car park and let off some steam in the play area. When you're finished scrambling and whizzing around the play area, head to the den building area or try out the barefoot walk. It's a perfect picnic spot too, right by Nelly's Moss lakes.
At the top of the estate, in Nelly's Moss car park, you'll find the entrance to Cragside's Labyrinth. Try not to get lost and have fun navigating the winding paths and tunnels cut out of rhododendron forest. Look out for William the Wizard and other woodland sculptures as you go!
If you fancy a challenge, swing, climb and jump your way around the Trim Trail located at various points along Canada drive.
Head out on a summer walk with the whole family and explore Cragside's magical woodland. If you're exploring the Pinetum, don't forget to look out for Douglas, and keep your eyes peeled for signs of wildlife amongst the trees.
Otters at Nelly's Moss, dragonflies at Slipper, and duck and geese at Tumbleton... become a nature detective and spot the different wildlife that live by the lakeside. Accessible walking routes are around Tumbleton and Nelly's Moss lakes.
