This is Dunstanburgh Castle - in ruins now but quite amazing.
One of the highlights of our trip was a visit to Chillingham to see very rare cattle. The only truly wild cattle in the world and an endangered species. They have no contact with humans. We were only allowed 50 yards away with a guide. They interbreed but in a way that prevents fathers getting daughters pregnant etc.
And we went on a trip to the Farne Islands to see grey seals!
And I was brave enough to run down a sand dune. Though it nearly killed me climbing to the top.
But best of all - were the beaches and the fabulous blue skies!
