An idyllic spot overlooking the river. Free entry to an amazing ruined castle. Lots of nooks and crannies. A great place to have a picnic and let the kids explore. Hide and seek would be great fun here.
tucked away on the banks of the North Tyne River is a little gem - one of those places which you feel is full of history and drama - if the stones could speak what stories they would tell.

The ruins of Hailes Castle are set in the most beautiful spot by the banks if the River Tyne. We had the whole place to ourselves. A great place for a picnic. A very interesting place, steeped in history.
Well worth a visit. Lovely setting on the banks of the Tyne. Kids can explore the castle with lots of information boards giving the history of the castle. Peaceful grounds ideal for a picnic or just while away an hour or so.

We finally found this castle and were glad of it. Late afternoon, sun shining, a few people lazed around on the grass - perfect. A ruin, that is free to get into. Not much left, but a river runs next to it, so lovely for a lazy afternoon.
Easy to find up a farm track with just 2 parking spaces. I though there wouldn't be much left but was surprised. Good plaque at the front and info on signs throughout the castle. Well worth a look if you are in the area.
Went with low expectations, but actually its more impressive than it sounds. Good placards explaining different parts, and well looked after generally. Went with two 3yr olds and they didn't want to leave....
