Beautiful and picturesque place, 10 minutes walk from the car park. The car park is next to the sandy beach. Can climb to the top of the ruined castle

There's nowhere I prefer to be on a sunny winters day. A beautiful beach along the towy estuary with a stunning backdrop of quaint cottages, low cliffs and woodland. I love the walk along the beach, up through the woodland and to the castle. There...More

A grand castle on a promontory, in good repair though long abandoned, with views across the land and the bay.

Be better once the building work is completed. Place looks like a ruin. Nice views though. Neighbours are a bit noisy and could raise the dead.

Great castle on a prominent hill. Quite ruinous; enough to give you a sense of how formidable it would have been but not a lot left in terms of towers to climb or walls to walk. Free entry. No shop or restrooms. Car park at...More

A fair walk from Llansteffan beach but well worth the effort and my dog certainly appreciated it. I just love old castles and this had lots of nooks and crannies to explore. As mentioned the views were beautiful.

If you are in the area south of Carmarthen, it is definitely worth visiting Llansteffan Castle. It is quite a climb up from the beach but all the family will enjoy moving around the castle and the views out over the bay beyond. People with...More

As with most medieval castles, they built it a bit far from the main road (only joking, I'm not a complete numpty!). However, parking is someway from the castle, either in the main village (free, next to the church), or next to the beach. Nice...More

This site of a castle ruins is a nice afternoon out. There is a car park down by the beach and the castle is a good walk. You can choose a direct rout up a path and along a road should take a leisurely 10...More
