Belsay Castle is a 14th century stone three storey tower house, founded by John de Strivelyn. The impressive unaltered tower, is crowned by four round corner bartizan's, standing above the machicolated parapet. In the vaulted basement is a kitchen with a well and above is a hall and a solar, both with fireplaces and tall traceried windows with seats. There is a north wing of four storeys and in the southwest corner, a spiral stair and six small rooms.
