Basically a house. Very small. Not really worth £5.50 if ur just going there. But if your doing a walk by towards or from Corbridge. Sayin that it's still interesting to see such a beautiful building.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We are a little off the beaten track (quite literally) but as you say it's worth the visit.

Great little mediaeval castle/manor with intact layout. Good for a short extra visit if you're in the region. Don't be put off by country lanes. Well signposted. Orchard good for a picnic. Guide book worth buying for the interesting detail.
