Aydon Castle


Tucked away just one mile from the village of Corbridge is Aydon Castle, the perfect location for a family day out.

Almost completely intact, it is one of the finest and most unaltered examples of a 13th century English manor house. Set in a beautiful and secluded Northumberland woodland, it was originally built as an undefended residence, but almost immediately fortified on the outbreak of Anglo-Scottish warfare. Nevertheless it was pillaged and burnt by the Scots in 1315, seized by English rebels two years later, and again occupied by Scots in 1346.

Bring along a picnic and spend the day exploring this hidden gem or why not visit Hadrian’s Wall too, a mere stone throw away.
