Preston Pele Tower is very secluded, although it's clearly signposted from the A1. We were lucky enough to be there on a gloriously sunny day, which really showed it off to perfection. You really do feel that you have 'got away from it all' - the atmosphere is so peaceful. There is an honesty box in the tower for the... More

Lovely little spot even if you just want a sit down in a pleasant environment. Honesty box for the tower and there is plenty of interest inside, as well a good view from the top. I am glad we spotted it and visited it.

A perfect place to get away from it all, in pleasant surroundings and very comfortable rooms. The hosts were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and for places to visit and eat. After starting the day with a perfectly presented and tasty breakfast the hotel was ideally located for visits to number of famous castles or beaches.

We came upon this gem almost by accident , en route to Chillingham and it was well worth visiting. Privately owned , it was the most preserved and interesting tower in the area. The information is clear and obviously written by a person who cared about the history of the area. The owners leave an honesty box for the paltry... More

Preston Tower is a privately owned Pele tower in delightful grounds. There is an honesty box and visitors book in the first room in the tower. Climbing up the tower and exploring the rooms is great fun - a couple of rooms are furnished to give you an idea of how people would have lived (The stairs in the tower... More

A friend recommended this and we were glad she did. The tower is in such a peaceful, tranquil setting. It was really interesting to read all about the Border Reivers and to see inside a Pele tower. It was great to have the place to ourselves and we enjoyed the views from the top of the tower.

We stumbled across this ancient Peel Tower by accident and nearly didn't bother to stop. Thank goodness we did as it's amazing. The owner has written very interesting tales of it's remarkable history and has taken on all the restoration too. You must climb to the very top and go out on the roof, but be prepared if the clock... More

Read reviews prior to visit and wasn't disappointed, all information about the tower was handwritten and although some of it was hard to read I felt it added to the character of the building and itself was a part of the history of the tower. The views from the top were really nice as we visited on a beautiful day.... More
