We combined the wild cattle and the castle on a day trip and neither disappointed. The castle is vast and very much a work in progress still, it is filled with random collections of the most varied items imaginable. The owner is clearly very committed to this castle but probably quite eccentric as well! There are really interesting items in...

The 12th century Castle is a cross between Stately Home/Torture Chamber/Formal Gardens/Junk Shop and there's a surprise awaiting you around every corner. On the ground floor you'll find the Dungeon and across the courtyard the torture chamber complete with a collection of torture instruments and various dummies being subject to painful activities; this is not for the faint hearted. In...

Visited the castle with a joint ticket to see the wild cattle. The castle itself is an amazing place , full of the most random stuff. A gruesome torture chamber which I was assured was haunted. A very interesting visit. The cafe in the castle with massive own fire was great too. Massive portions of food and reasonably priced. Didn't...

We have been visiting the castle for six years now and it's still my favourite place for a peaceful overnight stay. I was delighted when my husband announced he had booked the castle as the venue for us to have a renewal of our wedding vows, a second wedding really as we didn't quite get it right the first time!...

On the Easter holidays I went to a amazing castle, it was my dads idea.I went with my friend Allyssa and my mum and dad. I've got to say it was a long drive but it was worth it, when we were in the car we saw a splendid view of the Cheviot and there was still snow on them....

We visited Chillingham Castle today and I can honestly say it is the worst castle we have ever visited and we have visited a lot of castles! Very poor value for money. The place is very cluttered and felt grubby with disorganised amateurish displays with nothing but tattered old bits of paper to inform you what the display was. The...

A very damp and smelly castle that is run down and in need of some TLC. The staff were great with a good knowledge of the history etc. Very little to see the exhibits were in the main plastic or just not right for the history of the castle. This castle leaves a lot to be desired and I would...

Went to Chillingham Castle for the ghost tour and overnight stay in the guard room apartment. We were greeted by a nice lady who did her best to give us the necessary information on walks around the grounds and info on our room. We were taken to our apartment which on first impression was run down and smelt of damp...

We stayed the weekend at the castle for my wife's 50th Birthday and we both totally loved everything about it. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the staff and Cathy in particular was so helpful and nothing was to much trouble to get us settled in. Our accommodation was the Landseer apartment which is a wonderful and relaxing place...
