  • Small ruins, 5 minutes to see everything. When we went it was really rainy, but still nice view to the river. Don't miss once you are there. Walk through the stepping stones, take a few pictures. A ni...  more »
  • The castle has a spectacular view of the river. It feels quite safe for children to run about. Below it are stepping stones which take you on a walk to Merthyr Mawr village and the pretty church there...  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
