We enjoyed this castle more than Prudhoe castle which we visited on the same day small but interesting and dog friendly. Would have liked to have seen more exhibits but it was still an interesting hour.

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

This castle is small and for many years has been used as a farm. The views from the castle are not spectacular and the road to it was single track and a bit rough. There is no date but you can get a tea/coffee in...More

Aydon Castle, located just a mile or so north of Corbridge, is really a fortified manor, dating from the 13th century. The location was border country, and subject for 100's of years to raids from the violent Reivers, so good fortification was essential for any...More

We only visited this castle as we had free entry by virtue of our English Heritage membership. However, it would be worth paying for as it is a real hidden gem. It is a little off the beaten track but the roads are quiet and...More

Amazingly well preserved 12th century castle. Hard to believe people still lived here until 1966. wow. Good grounds. On a nice day, this would be a good spot to hang out.

Well preserved fortified manor house / castle where you are free to wander - good place for kids who like to explore. Off the beaten track so tends to be quiet / crowd free & ver helpful / enthusiastic staff
