We love visiting castles and so this was a must do. My husband and I visited with our adult children aged 22 and 24. I thought the charge for the castle was very reasonable. The walk up was pretty steep but the view from the top well worth while. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the castle - it had good information... More

I must echo the views of a previous reviewer, the venue was let down by average (value) food and a ridiculously high corkage charge. Our host had as is previously noted supplied four barrels of high quality real ale though I am sure the venue sold quite a lot of its own drink, no doubt at highly inflated prices. This... More

I went to a friends 60th birthday party on the evening of Saturday 29th March 2014, it is a lovely barn and a great place for a party but, the food was poor, a small bowl of cawl with 2 tiny pieces of lamb in it, a lump of average cheese and a slice of bread, and a supermarket Gateaux... More

Lovely spot on a Sunday afternoon but I'm sure that the cost of £11 for myself, my husband and my son to walk up to the castle was a bit much. It's out of season now, we were not checked if we had a a ticket so for all we know, we could have been the only ones who bought... More

Such a fascinating castle with the most stunning views, anyone visiting South Wales would be mad to miss it, even if it is a bit out of the way! Without a doubt it is the most beautiful I've ever experienced out of the many we have here in Wales. The opportunity to bottle-feed their lambs at this time of year... More

Great ruins and lovely run around for kids. There is a bit of up hill climbing, so wear sturdy footwear and not ideal for less able walkers

This Castle is one of our favourite castles. A long walk to get to it but well worth the effort. Children can enjoy this place as well as the adults. Take a torch to go into the dungeon, it is as black as pitch! The views are stunning. It really is easy to let your imagination go back in time... More

Visited this castle today. A rainy dull afternoon but had a wonderful time. The passage way and cave was amazing. Views from the top of the castle are spectacular. Well worth a visit. The kids all loved it. We then enjoyed a late lunch and gorgeous cakes in the restaurant.

We went here on a weekend after the awful winter weather. However, we were not disappointed. This castle is incredible. It is perched right on the top of a cliff with spectacular views and scenery. Dont forget to take a torch though, as this must be one of the only castles that has a very deep and dark dungeon and... More
