Lovely home cooked cake and good quality ingredients make this a good stopping off point for coffee cake and or quiche etc. Court yard garden at the rear is pleasant with a grapevine for shade.

If you ever visit the quaint little town of Montgomery, a visit to the castle is a must. It's a ruin, overlooking the town, but affording the most amazing views, almost 360 degrees. The story of the castle is told on several boards on the...More

Wandered up hill to view a very historic castle. Be prepared for a steep climb though. Fabulous views over valley and interesting insight into medieval living.

Full of history lots of room to run and play or sit and enjoy the countryside. Good for all ages but can be a bit of a climb

It is a steep climb of 500 yards to the car park from the town but half way up there is a footpath to the right that takes you to the lower reaches of the castle. Turn left just before the Dragon Hotel if you take the car... More
