You can make out clearly how this castle would have looked as there are a lot of ruins left. The tower looks like it could fall down at any minute, a great little castle to visit for an hour.

Went to see the church, which lies nearby, and is a cracker, going way back in early Christianity, which this area does well. helpful in building up my knowledge of this period.

We literally stumbled on this place from the main road and its secluded position in the valley was well worth a visit. The church nearby is very old and merits a view in itself. It was fairly easy to park by the church and then walk on to the castle. The castle is very ruinous and gives the impression of... More

Well worth stopping off and taking a detour - the church is amazingly preserved and dates from the 900s, the castle from the 1100 - so quiet and tranquil, far from the madding crowd!

Small ruined castle in a stunning setting with a view of the viaduct and beautiful green valley. So peaceful. Free to get in.

I really liked this castle which we visited on the way to Alnwick. Its free and not a lot remains above ground though it does have a large tower which is split on one side which is held in place with two metal rods. It looks lonely stuck out in the middle of the countryside but to me it has... More

Worth calling in to see the castle when travelling on the scenic B6341. The castle has a few information signs and is close to a small church which has an information sheet for the castle. You also get a view of an old railway viaduct.

A ruined castle, a quaint church and an old railway viaduct grouped together dramatically and all built from the same red sandstone. Really memorable and often you will have the place to yourself!
