Greenhaugh and Tarset, Northumberland
Today the settlement of Greenhaugh lies either side of a road running from Comb in the north towards Tarset in the south, with Greenhaugh Burn cutting through the south of the village, separating Greenhaugh Hall from the remainder of the village.
The settlement of Tarset is situated about 1km south of Greenhaugh and comprises a number of farmsteads centred around the remains of the castle, plus the hamlet of Lanehead at the crossroads.
The main road from Bellingham to Kielder runs through the area, along with the disused Border Counties Railway, which clips the southern edge of the castle earthworks.
To the north the area is bounded by the Tarset Burn which flows into the River North Tyne a short distance to the southwest of the settlement.
Both Greenhaugh and Tarset are overlooked by the great conifer plantations to the north, west and south, whilst the vast moorland expanses of Hareshaw Common and Troughend Common sweep away to the east.
