We took a short detour when we spotted the castle nestling down in the valley on our way from Alnwick to Rothbury. So glad we did! Not only was there the ruined castle but also a beautiful little church. The castle itself certainly defies gravity...More

Not somewhere you could send a whole day and probably best visited as part of a day out to other sites (we visited en route to Cragside). As mentioned there is only limited parking outside the church and then a short walk down to the...More
