This remarkable castle with beautiful gardens and grounds has, since the twelve hundreds, remained in the same family line.
You will see active restoration of complex masonry,metalwork and ornamental plaster as the state rooms are gradually restored.
Steeped in the Nations history it occupied a strategic position as a fortress during Northumberlands bloody border feuds.
