Nice place for a brief visit off the beaten track


wendover6688, Northampton, United Kingdom
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.

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.
