Duddo Stone Circle

We can lay claim to our very own “Stonehenge”. The Duddo Standing Stones are least 4500 years old. Free access throughout the year, just a walk away from our home.

The Holy Island of Lindisfarne was a cradle of Christianity during the Golden Age of Northumbria. The Castle is an awesome site and the Norman Priory stands on the site of an Anglo-Saxon monastery founded by St Aidan in AD635. It is believed that Aidan chose the site because of its isolation and proximity to the Northumbrian capital of Bamburgh.

Bamburgh Castle

It is quoted in Time Out as the “Finest castle anywhere in this country”
See for yourself, we agree. It sits perched on an outcrop overlooking the Sea. One of the very few castles left that are not in ruin. It is the Royal Seat of the Ancient Kings of Northumbria. The Castle attracts the “Time Team” archaelogists

Dunstanburgh Castle

A 14th Century ruined fortress. The atmosphere when sitting amidst her ruins with the North sea wind howling above and around you is quite evocative and mysterious. There is also a Golf course only a walk away for lovers of the sport!

Visit English Heritage website to find out more.

Alnwick Castle

The home of the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland needs no introduction, aka the “home” of J K Rowling’s Harry Potter. The Castle invites visitors from the end of March 2012 including the Gardens. A truly magnificent part of our heritage.
