Great Keep (Winterfell)
The Great Keep contains the bedchambers for members of House Stark. The building is heated by water from hot springs below the castle, and Lady Catelyn Stark's bedchambers are the hottest rooms in the Great Keep. The towers of the Great Keep have winding stairs. The bulding's cellar has narrow windows.
Theon Greyjoy once earned himself a thrashing by accidentally knocking Old Nan to the ground while carelessly leaping down the Great Keep's spiral stairs. Theon and Robb Stark have also often sparred on the stairs with wooden swords.

Werlag breaks down the door to Bran's chamber during the capture of Winterfell by ironborn, and Theon Greyjoy takes the boy into custody. Calling himself Prince of Winterfell, Theon claims Eddard's bedchamber.
A Dance with Dragons
Lord Roose Bolton holds the wedding of his son Ramsay and "Arya Stark" (actually Jeyne Poole) in the godswood of Winterfell. After the guests feast in the Great Hall, Roose meets with bannermen in the Great Keep's solar. Ramsay keeps Jeyne confined to his bedchamber, a room lightly damaged by the sack and adorned with new furnishings from Barrowton. Men from the Dreadfort guard the main doors of the Great Keep, and the Bastard's Boys guard Ramsay's chamber. "Arya's" serving girls include Maisie and Jez.
The Freys and the Manderlys fight after Little Walder Frey is found murdered, so Roose orders the two factions to advance on Stannis Baratheon in the wolfswood. Theon and Abel's washerwomen use this as an opportunity to sneak "Arya" from Ramsay's chambers in the Great Keep.
