To get to Langley Castle without a car, you'll need to take the train to Newcastle, then change for Hexham (it's a frequent route on a smaller train, leaving several times a day), about 30 minutes west of Newcastle. Then hire a taxi (waiting at the Hexham station) to Langley Castle--the driver will know where to go!

On the second Saturday of every month, we have a Farmers Market in Hexham - lots of stalls, selling local fresh produce. It's usually pretty busy, and they sell out of things quite quickly sometimes, so you'd be wise to get there early.
As well as meat from local farms, there's dairy products, cakes, wooden cabinets, sheepskin rugs, walking sticks....all sorts, really!
What to buy: The Jersey milk is quite delicious, and in summer, someone sells homemade ice cream which is out of this world!
What to pay: Depends on what you buy. it's a bit more expensive than the "normal" shops, but the quality is worth that bit extra, in my opinion!

Just down a country lane from the castle, we found this idyllic gate and stone fence, with sheep grazing in the background. How much more peaceful could you get? And this picture doesn't even do it justice.
