A Proper Welsh castle on top of the hill with magnificent views . A dungeon worth exploring . Stop for a cuppa in the tea room on the way back

For those visiting the Castle site,be sure to stop at the Farm Tea Room. Excellent selection of food & they come round replenishing your coffee cup! We arrived by cycle (very hard work! ), & they even offered to re-charge one of our lady rider's 'Electric Assist' battery. Recommended.

View of the castle was amazing, the field at the bottom had a very old breed of horned cows which was very authentic. Sadly the castle was not accessible to me as many aren't for people with mobility issues, but the drive to and from the castle and the view were worth the trip and there was a café close... More

Majestic. So huge. Wished so much more was still preserved. An amazing (B-road; watch out newbies) drive to the edge of the Brecon Beacons, we spent a breezy Sunday afternoon climbing up the hill to spend time on this castle campus. You can feel how busy this little town must have been. The looks out west and south of the... More

A lovely walk you can pick between the yellow or red route. There are hills up and down. Great views from the top by the castle we go there often.

Lovely views, scarey cave. Well worth the little walk up to see the views and enjoy the cave. A very peaceful surrounding.

I have visited Carreg Cennen Castle for over 40 years and it never loses its appeal. As a young boy I was enchanted by this magical, huge, structure and just a little terrified by the thought of dragons living in the dungeons below (Thanks Dad). Now in my 40's I realise its not such a huge Castle, and maybe my... More
