  • We explored here recently, taking a look at the castle ruins as well as visiting the castle shop & cafe. It was interesting to see the remains of the castle and its position on the hilltop boasts beau...  more »
  • One of the most dramatic castles we've visited. On a smaller scale than Corfe but somewhat reminiscent. Fascinating visit and nice tea rooms.  more »
  • Enjoyed the red walking route on a gorgeous sunny day. Views stunning and great views of red kites, buzzards and swallows. It would be helpful to point out at the cash only hut that the tea room will ...  more »

  • One of the most beautifully situated Welsh castles with panoramic views of the surrounding valleys. A great stop for a slice of history, exploring or picnics. It can be quite pricey though. A family ticket will set you back £15.
  • This castle is well worth a visit. It also has a hidden cave in the castle so remember to take a touch. Fantastic views along the valley. Has a lovely cafe.
  • If you ever want to visit your idea of what a castle should be the Carreg Cennen is it . Perched on top of a rock watching over the valley below. The have an interactive display helping you to imagine it as it was in ages past. The cafe serves a great lunch which you can walk off in the meadows below.
  • Fantastic views all year round. A great walk up to the main ruin as well. Well worth a visit.
  • The views of the surrounding countryside are superb, exploring the castle you get a real sense of the history of place, with a little imagination you can picture medieval serfs and Lord and Lady of the castle with all the hustle and bustle if the times, with the cave below an interesting feature to explore..easily imagined as the castle dungeon. Then walking down to the coffee shop, a surprise awaits as you walk 8n and are free Ted by the helpful, friendly walking through to the function room at the back with its full bar and seating areas with quirky milk churns as table supports with views from the full length windows of the surrounding countryside...a great place for a quick ale and bite to eat before moving on..I imagine it can get quite busy during the spring/summer holidays seasons, but I had the castle all to myself in Dec free to roam & explore and take pictures. A wonderful place to visit any time of the year.
