This 12th century stronghold, just twenty minutes from the seaside and the home of Sir Humphry Wakefield and his family, became 'base-camp' for the 1298 conquering attack on William Wallace by King Edward 1st. The Castle is now open to the public and is ideally situated for exploring the breathtaking Northumbrian countryside.
