This crumbling ruin stands in a valley to the west of Alnwick.

Though it is mostly laid low, much of the solar or Great Tower still stands. The foundations and part of the walls of the house, gatehouse, barbican and other courtyard buildings are still visible, mostly dating from the 16th century.

This fortified manor house helped to guard one of the approaches to Alnwick to the west.

Its fortifications were improved in response to the border warfare which raged between England and Scotland between 1300 to 1600.
