Lovely walk to castle from Corbridge

MrsE1, Seaham, United Kingdom
A lovely place to spend an hour or two. We parked the car up in Corbridge and walked to the castle. A really nice walk too and I would recommend. The castle is very interesting and a really pretty location. Very friendly staff and the guide book at £3.50 is well worth it. They serve cold and hot drinks, chocolate, ice cream etc but would be lovely to put a picnic up and eat in the apple orchards.

A gem worth finding.

Not really a castle but a fortified manor house. Another really interesting English Heritage property. Super enthusiastic staff in reception, and very interesting guide, Chris. Lots of history with its encounters with the Scots and later used as a farmhouse. Really enjoyed our visit

Amazing place to stop off at

This is a really lovely place to explore and wander around. The guy in the shop was brilliant and very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He would make a great tour guide.We spent about two hours or so looking over the place which really had an atmosphere about it. Good place to visit on a rainy day. Perhaps a torch would have been a good idea as well. On a nice day it would make a great place for a picnic.

Nice place

Nice place would benefit having a coffee shop as has lovely seating area .Friendly staff on booking in
