    You can almost feel the power of the Percy Family as you wander what's left of the building and it's grounds. English Heritage have done a good job with the signs and information. Well worth the troub...  more »

    If you fancy a short walk before or after dinner, the Castle is only 5 - 10 mins from Castle Inn. Only a small site but has an excellent information board explaining the history of the castle.  more »

  • Proper old castle set in the village park. Free. Could be a bit spooky. Lovely walks nearby.
  • Steeped in fascinating history and well maintained grounds in a lovely village
  • Lovely little Castle which took about an hour to stroll around and read the boards and take pics. Shame that it isn't manned and that no toilet nearby, nearest about 1/2 a mile down road at a local pub called the Railway, although it does state that one board. No good when you have driven a couple of hours and need to spend a penny. Otherwise nice grounds, only one or two picnic benches and even though signs said dogs not allowed, there were dogs in the grounds, but not surprising as English Heritage book says dogs allowed, so the rules contradict each other. So wouldn't advise to have a picnic on the grass. Would have got 4* but for loo issue, dog rules and lack of picnic tables.
  • As I use to live in this village I have to say its nice white lady ghost story is spooky as I did see something one night walking the dogs at the rear of Castile
  • What a lovely little castle. My 4 year old loved it :)
