Although a little off the beaten track, this castle is well worth a visit. It is still intact and was lived in until the 1960's Helpful staff gave a brief explanation of the history.

We were on our way to Corbridge and saw this site in the English Heritage guide. A fortified manor house rather than a true castle it was a working farm until the 1960's. Access is via either of two single track roads. This is OK...More

Great place to visit from Corbridge combined with an optional pretty woodland walk to get there although you can just go by car. Seems as if everyone who owned this little castle/ Manor House in the Middle Ages made awful financial decisions. As a result...More
