Excellent event at a wonderful hidden gem site


peachy352, Newcastle
We came here for their Medieval life weekend event. We've been before when there wasn't an event and so wanted to see it in a different light. The staff at the entrance were very welcome and extremely knowledgeable about the site. As we'd been before and already had the guidebook we didn't buy one, but if you've not got it I would definitely recommend it, it gives you lots more info about life at the castle. The reenactors were spread about the castle and grounds doing all sorts of different things. Each of them was extremely friendly, happy to answer questions, let the children help/touch/smell which really added to their enjoyment. I would recommend a visit here even without the event, it's a hidden gem less than 2 miles from Corbridge!

Enjoyed our visit


Millymollymandy28, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Ok as usual these things are pricey for what they are and the amount of time you spend there but I love castles etc. Enjoyed our visit and would have enjoyed it more had it not been chucking down with rain. Not really a lot for kids to do there. Definitely worth a visit though. Would like to go back another time when the weather is a bit better.

Worth a visit.


Newcastlewalks,
A little overpriced but we had our English Heritage membership. Very friendly knowledgeable man on admissions. Well worth a visit only about half an hour out of Newcastle. Not your usual castle more a fortified Manor house with an interesting history. Kids would love to run around the rooms halls battlements and gardens.

Small place away from the crowds


Phil C, Ellesmere Port, United Kingdom
Nice little place for a visit , friendly staff. Just the buildings you see , the castle is not set in any large grounds outside the walls , surprising a lot of space inside considering the looks from the outside , although little furnishing in place , stripped back to pretty much the bare bones. No cafe but there are toilets on site. Carpark is separate but free and just a short walk up the road. Wouldn't keep you occupied all day , but worth the trip if you are in the area

Wonderful Rescue


NickyPuss, Kenilworth, United Kingdom
Amazing that this castle was lived in until recent times. Small but well preserved and a must to visit if in the area.
