Warkworth Castle and Hermitage

About

The Castle with its magnificent cross-shaped keep crowns a hilltop above the River Coquet. Once home to the powerful Percy family who now reside in Alnwick Castle, Warkworth was and remains one of the largest and most impressive fortresses in North East England. It was once home to 'Harry Hotspur', hero of many Border ballads and the bane of Scots raiders.

Half a mile from the Castle, tucked away beside the Coquet and accessible only by boat, stands a much more peaceful building, the late medieval cave Hermitage and chapel of a solitary holy man.
