Warkworth Castle and Hermitage (English Heritage)


Magnificent 15th-century keep set high above the River Coquet amidst extensive fortress ruins. Half a mile from the castle, tucked away by the river and accessible only by boat, stands a much more peaceful building: the late medieval cave Hermitage.
