5 minutes walk from the roadside parking, there is a lot more to the castle than the photos suggest, and it’s atmospheric in the woods. Don’t believe cadw’s 10-4 times, it’s really a ‘any reasonable time’ site, and worth stopping

Lovely walk and not too taxing! Make sure you wear appropriate footwear as the walk through the forest can be muddy and boggy! Visitor centre is a lovely place to pop in. Play area is also great for the kids and plenty of parking available

We live in Chester and wanted to find somewhere different but not too far away to walk our dog one Sunday. Ewloe Castle and surround parklands were just the ticket. Would recommend

About 15 minutes from the car park, this is a lovely walk through the woods to a hidden castle. You can explore the ruins and climb up onto the tower.

Driving from the Ewloe junction on the A55 towards Ewloe after about 4 minutes you see a sign on the right for Ewloe Castle. Park in the lay-by and take a ten minute walk through a field on a path. Eventually you will see the...More
