  • Fabulous castle, easy access and such a beautiful part of Wales to be in. The guide is so helpful and there some superb places to go in the surrounding area. Will be goin back next summer for a picnic!
  • Nice place to visit. The ruins are quite impressive. Also, as a curiosity, the slits on the towers, from which the archers were shooting arrows (probably) have an interesting shape. The drive is on a narrow road and a limited number of parking spaces available. No entry fees.
  • A beautiful castle tucked away in seemingly the middle of nowhere. A very tranquil spot and a beautiful place to go for picnics and relaxing while taking a look back in time
  • No visitor centre open - no cafe or shop. Didnt see any toilets. Enough info boards about history. Great example of a castle with moat, intact walls, towers and gate houses.
  • Love this place. Incredibly atmospheric and peaceful.
