Most expensive boat trip I've taken - all of 30 yards and it was £8p.p if I remember rightly. You walk 100yards along the riverbank to the hermitage which is not much more than a hole in a rock. That's it really. There is not...More

This chapel is carved out of a rock face in imitation of being stone built. Very clever, very beautiful and tranquil location. To get you in the mood you are rowed there by the guide across the few yards of river. If there are crowds...More

After walking along the river path from the castle it was a real disappointment to find the boat tied up and no boatman in sight. The EH sign gave a little of the history of the hermitage, opening times and ticket prices but there was...More

Getting over the river to visit the hermitage is easy as there is a small ferry boat - nothing to worry about. The hermitage is great to explore and you can spend as little or as long as you like here.

We visited here in a separate day to the castle as it wasn't open on our first visit. Worth noting as it is accessed only by a rowing boat it being open/accessible is affected by tide levels. The hermitage is an interesting place to visit...More

Very interesting and unusual. Enjoyed a chat with the ferryman. Best enjoyed using the torch app on your phone!

Visited after going to the excellent castle. The boat man was friendly and informative, and the little hermitage was so atmospheric

It's the journey that really makes a visit to the Hermitage worthwhile, although the 'building' itself is fascinating. Park at Warkworth Castle (£3.10 but refunded when you visit the castle to buy your ticket) before a 15 minute walk down to and then along the...More
