Lovely preserved place

Rachel S,
Lovely place to wander around the guy on the till was very informative about the places past history I would recommend this place to anyone who likes castles and their history

Well preserved manor

Chris U, Sunderland, United Kingdom
Aydon castle is a well preserved unfurnished fortified manor house. It offers a number of rooms to explore over two floors. Due to its preserved condition the manor offers good photo opportunities. We found staff were friendly and informative. Facilities are basic, 2 toilets and a gift shop offering drinks and snacks. You can't spend a full day at Aydon but there are a number of other sites to visit in the local area. The approach to the manor is via a single track with passing points.

Worth finding

Although a little off the beaten track, this castle is well worth a visit. It is still intact and was lived in until the 1960's Helpful staff gave a brief explanation of the history.

Highly recommend

Great fortified manor/farm

cant83, Boston, Massachusetts
Really well preserved buildings since they were occupied and actively used until middle of 20th century. Lots of rooms to explore, strong walls to examine and it's easy to imagine life in this massive manor. It's a bit of a drive off the side road to find the castle (maybe a mile down a one lane road), but well worth it. Less than a 10 minute drive from Corbridge.
