Great countryside, Castle dating back to 12th century, really worth a look. No signposting on A69. Need to head for Ovingham and drive over narrow metal bridge. Alternatively find your way to Prudhoe on A695.

A small castle but one of great strategic importance, and where you can see the development of the site from military stronghold to Georgian home. The changes in the window designs are especially interesting. A visit here makes a pleasant change from all the nearby...More

We visited here as the result of a brochure in our Hotel. Led to believe that the Manor house inside the walls was well worth visiting. I thought that as an English Heritage property it would be good. Well we left after an hour quite...More
