  • Picturesque view of the castle with the hills in the background. There is a river nearby with stepping stones across the river. I would expect to spend 30 to 45 minutes here  more »
  • Ancient ruins where you are left to explore at your own pace. Lovely location for a picnic and it’s always fun crossing the stroll stones on the river!  more »
  • We nipped here on passing. Although it's only ruins it's worth a visit. Kids enjoyed crossing stream on the stepping stones. This castle was free to visit. No toilets here, but a nice pub just a minut...  more »

  • Very nice place to visit. There are also stepping stones across the river on a mild day. And nice walks.
  • Its the best place to go to enjoy a peaceful bank holiday, and I just love the location of the site, still quiet a shame that the castle isn't there anymore but the gardens are still adequate. To suit all family an friends needs, I love this place.
  • Good meal well presented....could have been served faster..but hey once that old sun is out..where would you not wait for your meal
  • I love this place. We grew up around here and would often walk around the castle. It's a great place to take the family. There is a car park however this is prone to flooding and at least once a year cars get stuck. Do not use car park around super tides
  • I've been to Ogmore castle numerous times over the years in all seasons. It's a lovely place, free to access. Some lovely views and areas to walk and not too far from the beach too.
