Castle and cake
This small village lies just outside the Northumberland National Park, down the road from Walltown. It’s a great place to stop on the Pennine Way.
Here you’ll find tearooms, accommodation, a friendly pub and a farmers market on second Sunday of each month
It’s also easy to get to; Thirlwall Castle is a 12th-century castle on the bank of the River Tipalt. In 1999, Northumberland National Park Authority acquired a 99-year lease on Thirlwall Castle and 10 hectares of adjacent woodland. For out more by downloading our Thirlwall Castle leaflet.
