Spontaneous stop; memorable place
tonyemha, Bradford, United Kingdom
Spontaneously stopped here on Easter Saturday and was quite delighted. A super-enthusiastic young man was in the information kiosk and he tantalized us with what was available: a higgledy-piggledy totally eccentric pile of a house occupied (spartanly, e.g. with outside toilets) as late as the 1960s. Stairs in strange places; rooms off rooms that made little sense. It felt like being in an Escher building where you would never know what room would come next – all the result of different occupiers, including at one time bandits. A real gem of a house with a short but pretty outside walk – through the orchard – above a gorge dropping down to a gurgling river.

Although not open all year round this is well worth the wait, a beautifully restored building, very interesting history. It is also a nice walk to it from Corbridge.
Not the best...

We are doing the rounds of all the castles in the local area and so combined this one with some other small places we visited that day, because you wouldn't want to just visit this alone! I was quite disappointed with it really, there's not much to it and it barely took any time to look around. There happened to be a reenactment event happening that day (one of only two events they hold there we were told) but it seemed boring (a few tents demonstrating how life was back in the day and men dressed up fighting with spears) Been there, done that and got the fridge magnet!

We just called as we were in the area but are glad we did, this is an interesting place to wander around. It is quite intact as per the advertising, as said before we love English Heritage as they allow us to take our dogs along as long as they are on leads.
Closed on Mondays! Looked good from outside

We hiked here while walking Hadrian's Wall. It was a little (perhaps a mile) off the normal path. There was an ample car park, restaurant, gift shop, toilets, and the castle itself. All were closed (except the car park) the day we hiked through, but everything looked quite nice.
