  • Just everything right. Nice old castle, quiet a few remains. One tower can be walked up to. Great views all around. A bit of fitness is required, as the castle is located top hill, car parking is a bit down in the village. Good place to park would be near the old Norman church. There is no entrance fee to pay. Very recommend, if you are interested in castles generally, or into ancient architecture. Lots of photo spots around. The nearby beach has it all. Some lovely shops, ice cream, fish and chips etc. Down at the beach side, there are also public rest rooms. (Free). Altogether, good location for a day, alone or with all the family.
  • A beautiful castle on a hill. Parking in the village of llansteffan with toilets and easy access out onto the beach. Nice walk up the hill with the path rough in places. Great views from the hill and top of the gatehouse. All well cared for and clean to look around - information boards around the site give interesting info about the history of the site. The inside of the fort is hilly too and can be slippy/muddy after rain.
  • A nice castle ruin with great sea view. Classic architecture with some fun spiral stairways to climb. Worth a visit but not as grand as some of the nearby castles
  • Fantastic place to wander around. Lots of info boards scattered around the castle. Absolutely stunning views across the estuary - and further
  • Very scenic and lots of footpaths to walk And a castle with a nice view over the estuary. Nice place for walking dogs on beach.
