  • 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 »

  • Lovely place to go & spend a couple of hours. It's a unmanned Cadw site with free entry with information about the castle on printed boards/plaques for you to read at your leisure. Access to the site is through a closed gate & up a small, grassy incline. There's a small car park which has a very uneven surface, a sign on entry also says that there is the potential for the car park to flood. Car park is locked at overnight, again, there is a sign telling you what time it will be locked on the day. There are stepping stones across Ewenny River from the car park allowing you to explore the local area. Great for kids as there's plenty of space for them to run around & explore.
  • Lovely place to visit, fun crossing the stepping stones with my son. Just be aware of the tide if parking by river as tide can rise if your not around to watch the river. Nice castle for photos too.
  • Stunning location and views, plenty of walking trails to keep this kids and adults active. Ogmore beach is 2 minutes away by car. With again stunning views and plenty of parking
  • Beautiful scenery.. Great for the kids /Grandkids.. Free parking... Beware though as it's liable to flooding very quickly so be vigilant...
  • The ruins of the castle and the grounds are very well kept and the site by the river makes it a great place to visit
