This has to be my favourite place and view. The climb into the 16th century romantic castle up the slippery cobbles was a little nerve racking with a toddler mainly due to the seeming lack of fencing his height ( bit of a surprise for a national trust property!) . We all loved it inside. All Lutyens designed interior so panelling and heavy furniture but none the less cosy. Just wished the man playing the Northumbrian bagpipes had been a little quieter as such a peaceful place otherwise! The views of course were stunning and you could just about see the colony of seals in the distance in the reserve. We will be back!
