The North and the location of Hornwood[1]

Hornwood is a castle in the North and the seat of House Hornwood. The Hornwood lands neighbor those of House Bolton.[2] Its ruler is known as the Lord of the Hornwood;[3] there is presumably a forest called the Hornwood which is ruled by the castle.

George R. R. Martin has not published the location of Hornwood on maps yet, but the non-canon map for HBO's Game of Thrones places the castle between the Dreadfort and White Harbor, just north of the Sheepshead Hills.[4]
