  • Perhaps the most beautiful castle in Wales. Is extra but parking is free. There is a quite difficult to do and not suitable for people with disabilities. The castle is entirely visitable, with several ups and downs. Really worth visiting.

  • We did the 4 mile walk around the castle and then climbed up to it afterwards. You really get to appreciate how it commands the surrounding countryside from all directions. Great castle, but watch out for the slope down to the cave. Very very slippy when wet. Well worth a visit.
  • One of my favorite Welsh castles. Be sure to bring your walking sticks if you are a little unstable, and then checkout the cave under the castle. The tea room has good food, and a great place to sit and eat as well.
  • This is such a cool example of a well kept ruin. The main structures of the former castle are still there and you have free reign of wandering around it. There is a small fee to enter and there is a huge canteen to grab refreshments. The walk up to the castle itself is up a pretty steep peak, and it's very slippery when wet. The cowl at the canteen is delicious and warming on a cold day.
  • A wonderful rugged castle with spectacular views. £5.50 for adults, with a lovely coffee shop and gift shop before you go up. There is also a car park. Be sure to visit the cave underneath, they hire torches out if you forget one.
  • The castle is really well worth the visit. Set in a beautiful location, with amazing views. Myself, husband and 3 children loved exploring the cave. Would have given 5 stars but the lady in the tea room came across very rude when we thanked them for our lunch. Shame really as there is no need to speak to paying customers in that way.
