Twizel has become very close to my heart, as my other half's brother had his ashes scattered here. Twizel castle is, as sharnad pointed out, one of Northumberland's sadly lesser known ruined castles. I say sadly, because it is really a beautiful spot, with a great position next to the Till. As well as an explore of the ruins themselves, there is also a large circular walk (running through the Tillmouth Estate?) but be careful, it becomes VERY muddy when wet!
This is a not very wel known castle ruin on top of a hill near norham castle its on a side road off the a698 and you stop at the bridge where there is room for two or three cars
Its a walk up the hill and be careful with little ones and a climb over a still but well worth it when you get up there
and if you are adventorous you can explore the ruin
It was a 15th century tower house with had a mansion built onto it in the 18th century which was never finished and which went to ruin so it ended up as kind of a folly but an unfinished one
Dont think many people go here as its not that well known but worth a look
