Great building on a sunny day. The addion of colour and volunteers re-enactmenting and recounting history add to the authenticity. Great for kids of all ages.

I love this site - a medieval castle ruin, together with a later mansion, in a beautiful rural setting just off the main road to Brecon. A really lovely place to spend time, with plenty of history and an impressively restored great hall make this...More

We stumbled across this place while driving around. What a wonder, fascinating place. Friendly staff, who were very knowledgeable. Unfortunately the weather was hit and miss but we did not let that dampen our spirits. We will definitely return.

Really interesting attraction with some of the most helpful and informative staff you could meet. The great hall has been set up like a banquet and lots of explanations of the histories of the Picard and Vaughan families. A hidden gem.
