  • It is accessed by a lane which is quite narrow from Abergynolwyn. There is a small car park enough for 4/5 cars. From the car park there is a small walk to the castle which can be a little slippy afte...  more »
  • This ruin is well of the beaten path and can only be reached by narrow Lane, but is well worth the visit, and as a bonus is free to enter. Limited parking for only a few cars. We picked up the guide b...  more »
  • After a bit scary drive on single lane tracks you come to the small parking area. Then hike through the woods up the hillside. Castell-y-Bere, was an impressive fortress built by Llywelyn the Great, P...  more »

  • I found the place on a google map search and thought that the pictures looked okay. They were not not near to give a precise picture of the place. A short walk from a place to park and it just opened up to this spectacular ruin with beautiful views. There were very few people also, which is always nice, since it makes the experience more authentic. Loved being there.
  • Nice walk to impressive ruins in a field . Foot path all the way but not always smooth and Hilly...steps up to the castle. Good views. Small car park. No facilities but there are information boards
  • Interesting place. Need to go in as not much visible from the road. Great views down the valley to the sea and inland to Cadair Idris. No facilities are available. Might have to pay to get in at weekends.
  • Fabulous historic place. Car and bicycle parking available. Short steep walk to the ruins. Enough left to get a feel for what the buildings were like. Excellent and well worth a visit.
  • Smashing old ruins in the middle of nowhere, some great photos to be taken :-) Great atmosphere, steeped in history, quite a walk up from road but well worth it :-)
