Hotels and Guest Houses in Etal
Set in the charming village of Etal by a ford over the River Till, this Northumberland castle is the ideal location for a family day out. Built by Robert Manners as a defence against Scots raiders in the mid 14th century, it fell to James IV's invading Scots army in 1513, immediately before their catastrophic defeat at nearby Flodden. The award-winning exhibition outlines the interesting story of the bloody Anglo-Scottish warfare of this border castle. Why not visit the Flodden Battlefields a stone throw away and get a sense of what it was like? To complete your day out bring along a picnic to enjoy in the surroundings of the Ford and Etal Estates.
