Fascinating place, very well preserved

Interesting place and very unusual as it is so well preserved. The chap in the visitor centre was helpful and knowledgeable too. A good way to spend an hour

Off the beaten track

Deciding to get as much use out our English Heritage membership as possible, we decided to look in here on our way back from Chesters fort. It was not easy to find, and found the car park at the end of a long narrow bumpy road/ track. Once there we were very pleased we took the trouble. The staff were informative and helpful, and the office/ shop was well laid out. The fortified manor house itself was very well preserved and had many rooms of interest, and a chance to sit on the thrones. There was also a nice view from the wall. Well worth the effort.

Surprise in the end of very long walk


KittyPounder, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
This castle is surprisingly well preserved which is probably due to the fact that it is not very easy to reach. We walked there from Corbridge, and it was a tough walk in the hills with a bit of woody vegetation. Interesting, the woods were full of wild garlic which I sort of liked. Very fresh air indeed. We eventually made it to the castle to the great surprise of their shop keeper. It is English Heritage site, so if you are member, its free for you to enter, and good idea to look around. But its small.

Interesting castle, great staff!


Wendls, Worcester, United Kingdom
What an interesting place to visit. If you're into exploring castles, hall houses, fortified manors & the like, this place ticks all the boxes and more. It's got a great history and there are plenty of architectural conundrums to get your head around while you're walking about. Just as good as the castle was the member of staff on site (Craig) who gave us a really good introduction and was great to chat to afterwards. He's clearly passionate about the place and knowledgeable about the castle and its context in place and time. Super to visit - pity the weather wasn't better for a longer exploration of the surrounding area.
