The location of this castle really is special .It is located almost on the beach and it is possible to walk around its high walls in places. It has a marvellous little café and very special welsh cakes.

Have visited the castle before but took the kids along before them dragging us down on to the beach just below - great historic building and good value for money on entry. Only problem on the day we went was a wedding was taking place so it was a quick visit in and out. However while on the beach later... More

There are lots of towers and rooms to explore once you get inside this smaller castle with a small tea room and shop. On the day we visited there was a falconry display in full swing and our son got to hold and eagle / red kite after after, which he loved! There is a large car park and a... More

A very interesting place to visit. Our two young grandchildren loved it as they could explore and run around safely. We loved it because it is fascinating to look around. The entrance fee is very reasonable, and the staff are all very helpful and friendly. My only criticism is th size of the cafe, although you can sit outside if... More

Grandmother, son and 12 yr girl and 10 boy really enjoyed this castle, climbing the fighting tower, going into the dungeon, trying to imagine life there in earlier times. Same car park canalso be used to visit the very near beach and also part of the coastal path.

Loved it here, it is fantastic despite the day we visited being very wet. Stunning views of the beach from the top of the towers. Beautifully kept gardens and interesting rooms to explore. Tea room was a bonus and the staff were very friendly. Very photographic - perfect for weddings!

We visited the castle before spending the rest of the day on the beach. The staff were very welcoming and the aroma from the tea rooms was amazing. It was very inexpensive and we enjoyed a couple of hours mooching around the towers and the grounds with the kids, then basked up the sun on the lawn.

It is rare to visit a castle and have no information to tell you about the history of the castle. The only way you were going to get this here was to buy a guide book - something you read at the time and then never again. The entrance fee was £5 per adult, for a small castle I found... More
