Aydon castle is an amazing place to stop off at to go to corbridge the castle it's self is really well preserved and full of history the guide book is well worth having as it explains everything so simply this is one for all the family...

Nice place for a brief visit off the beaten track

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

Well preserved manor

718chrisu, 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.
