Callaly Castle stands around 9 miles west of Alnwick. It's a Grade I listed building, although there's no public access. Architects divided the house into private apartments in 1987, and it has been a private residence ever since.

Yet the castle features an odd history, as many castles in the north east of England do. The fairy folk make an appearance in the story of its foundation. Though, there's a slight whiff of the land spirit about these fairies.

Did they really choose the location of Callaly Castle? Let's find out in this week's episode of Fabulous Folklore!
