I have been visiting this site for over 30 years and never fails to take me back in time and take my breath away. If you liked the movie Braveheart you need to visit this site. Right on the borders, Mel must have visited here...More

The castle is about half a mile from the road and worth a visit. It’s part of the English Heritage ...... signs tell you a brief history of the castle. You can’t help wondering how the people lived all those years ago.... very interesting.

This was an enjoyable surprise find. I was traveling to visit another more well-known site when I spotted this from the road. I was most pleased when I followed the drive to the ruins. What a wonderful hidden gem! The signs around the site explain...More

Edlingham Castle started life as modest Manor House that a local bigwig could be lord of. It’s in a beautiful valley with views of the Cheviot Hills and a pretty 11th century church next door. All was well until about 1300 when the Scots started...More

You can see the castle from the main road and it’s only a short drive and parking available outside the church. The castle ruins are well worth a visit and easily accessible. The church has some good information about the site.

This site is off the Alnwick to Rothbury road and may be missed if you are not sharp-eyed. There is limited parking adjacent to the site. The ruins are just about intact enough to visualise its former glory- now it is atmospheric ruins but still...More

We stumbled upon the ancient castle ruin on the drive back to our caravan park. It is well worth stopping for a closer look. Boards telling the history very informative.

Not many people visit Edlingham, mainly because it's off the beaten track. Actually, it's off a minor road, down a rough track and them a walk between cow fields. Once there, there's not a lot to see, but just enough if you use your imagination...More
