Used to come on school trips here and returning as an adult is just as much fun if not more, great way to learn about welsh heritage and nature, the castle grounds are so beautiful too! One of my favourite places to visit

Great place to visit, but like everywhere, looks better on a sunny day. Lots of work & reorganisation going on at the moment and a few things closed off.

If you want a good day out with the kids, there's plenty of space. But if you are interested in Welsh folk living, this is the place. it is very interesting and I love the cottages which have been arranged to follow the development of workers' cottages through the late 19th and early 20th century. There are so many interesting... More

Beautiful gardens and plenty for families to do, dogs also allowed on the lead, it's free and would pay to enjoy the relaxation and demonstration in the cottages. Go, relax and enjoy with the family

Aside from the parking, this place is free. Winter has less to offer than summer as there are no horse & trap rides available, but that's totally understandable. What a wonderful place to see this unique view of Welsh social history. Tea room was a bit rubbish though with little choice, little seating, few staff and a horrendous queue for... More

This place was amazing and if your interested in history and buildings this is the place for you. You learn about how people used to live and can ask as many questions to the very knowledgeable staff. They are adding buildings all the time and a Iron age village is planned. We has sandwiches in the cafe above the old... More

Free to get in, although parking is £3.50 for the day, great to wander around the houses and talk to the guides in each one. A it of an eye opener, as to how people lived. we did not look at everything, probably 3/4 and it took us around 2hrs.

Loved it, even in the rain! Lots of great history to see - it was a shame we went whilst they are undergoing a refurb but will be sure to return when it is finished!
