"Our home, Greywater Watch, is no castle you've ever seen. And seeing it once does not mean you'll ever find it again. For Greywater Watch... moves."

Greywater Watch is a castle in the Neck. It is ruled by House Reed, a vassal house holding fealty to House Stark of Winterfell. Greywater Watch is nigh-untraceable because it moves.

It is the home of Jojen and Meera Reed and their father, Lord Howland Reed. It is the southernmost stronghold in the North, and as such its rulers have a longstanding enmity with House Frey, who rule the area of the Riverlands on the southern side of the Neck.

Greywater Watch has not been mentioned in the series, but can be seen in a large table map, which shows Greywater Watch Southeast of White Harbor, during a war council held in Winterfell.[1]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Greywater Watch is the seat of House Reed, one of the most loyal vassals of the Starks.

In A Storm of Swords, Robb Stark sends Maege Mormont and Galbart Glover to Greywater Watch, aboard Lord Jason Mallister's ships, in order to ask for Howland Reed's assistance against the ironborn. Lord Jason points out it will be very difficult to find the castle among the swamps, also because it moves around. Robb tells him to fly the Starks' banner, and the crannogmen will find him.

According to The World of Ice and Fire, no raven or enemy can reach Greywater Watch, because it is said to be constantly moving.
