A lovely walk through Wepre Park which is only about a mile long and Ewloe Castle will meet you peering through the trees. Time for a sandwich and drink and a slow stroll back taking in the wonderful park.

Whilst the castle is easy to get to, if you are looking for a classic, you will be slightly disappointed. In its day the castle was never a major success and is now largely ruined. One for the enthusiast!

As well as by roadside the castle can be reached via a walk through Wepre country park. The paths are easy the only gradient is to the castle and then metal steps up the castle. Obviously the castle itself is ruins but still interesting. Summer...More

Small parking lot on the road side. Then a 5 or so minute walk into the woods and then the site pops up. Not a whole lot left of the castle but interesting as it is. No signage at all. This is not a level...More

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
