A rewarding rest after seeing the castle or walking one of the many trails around! Food is good and wholesome, much of the produce coming from the farm itself and all home cooked.Awesome views from the large eating area. My only critic would be that in the winter it is blooming freezing which does not induce one to linger overly... More

We didn't plan on visiting Cerreg Cennen castle during our trip to Wales but I am so glad we decided too! There is an entry fee and a cafe at the bottom of the hill and then a walk up to the castle. The views in very direction are magnificent. There is some information about the castle but not really... More

The attraction is free to English Heritage members and is maintained by Cadw. There is a lot to explore and see whether you are into your history, geology or wildlife. Whilst there a... More

A steep hill to climb to get to the castle, but well worth it. The views are amazing, even on a slightly misty morning. We had the place to ourselves as we got there just as they opened, so the kids were free to run around a bit. The castle is as you would expect for a ruin, with the... More

We went to the castle with every intention to climb the hill and enjoy what the castle had to offer, we parked our car in the nearby car park, we walked toward the castle enjoying the sights as we went, suddenly a woman appeared from local farm shop telling us that we could go no further unless we paid £16...
