  • For what is left of Pennard Castle, together with signposting to it, I have only awarded 4stars, although should I have judged the difficulty of those with disabilities in being able to get to the castle, the most stars would have been 1. For the views from Pennard Castle however, this is where the place exceeds all expectations in all sorts of weather, and whatever the tide; indeed, for the views alone, even 10stars would be far too low. Definitely a place to see and to marvel at that view!
  • If viewed during the right conditions the views over the bay can be fantastic from Pennard Castle, which itself is an interesting ruin particularly given its location on the sand dunes of the edge of the golf club. Walking up from the stream side (west) is quite good fun up the sandy slopes. Pennard Castle is a lovely little castle that highlights nature's ability to reclaim what man has built.
  • Outstanding castle. Can't spend enough time there each week I return. Nice walk down to the beach also
  • Excellent location...a good combination of castle and beach. A place to spend a day.
  • Great views over Three Cliffs Bay and picturesque castle ruins, but please keep in mind that there are no services in the vicinity.
