The Farmhouse At Shieldhall ........ And Castle Visits ...

Here`s the lovely farm house in Northumberland , near Kirkhale , called Shieldhall , where we stayed , set in a courtyard with out buildings made into bedrooms for people to stay ..... Very rural setting , but gorgeous scenery ........









Our room on the end with a bench to sit out .......









Three other bedrooms . .. With a workshop on the left hand side , as the owner was a carpenter .....









Our view sat on the bench ........











Our bedroom .......










This was on the lawn part outside our window ...... but i`m not sure what it`s called !! It looked like some sort of grinder machine with a handle on the side ......







Inside the farmhouse , there were vintage items everywhere ! I didn`t know where to look first ...... All totally gorgeous .....
These were on our breakfast tables both mornings ......

Old bottles , watches , chains , spoons , thimbles , wine labels ..... all in silver .......
















A statue on top of an old oak dresser ........











While away ... we always try to visit places of interest , like castles .......
This is Alnwick Castle ...... The best one i have visited this year !



The walk up to the castle .........







There were some birds of prey inside ......
This is Willow ... A south African owl ... Which you could stroke ... He was so soft ... and very cute ! ....







Various views from inside the grounds of the castle .......
