I love this Castle, with the Views. And History. One of my best places in Wales to go to rest and get away from the World. Only £4 Per-Person. £2.60 OAP and Stu. Enjoy & Go.

Whilst the castle is mainly in a ruinous state, the layout and some original features of the building are still obvious and overall it was a great way to spend an hour for just £4 entry. The views from the walls and grounds are wonderful...More

Wonderful Castle, very well maintained. Amazing views in all directions, we walked around the ancient wall’s around the castle also and so glad we did. Car parking is available, but we did make the mistake of exiting the ‘mound’ via the most difficult route possible...More

Large castle built up on high and dominating the surrounding area. Fantastic views of all the valleys around. Very good information boards throughout with plenty of areas to explore and climb.

loved it here; it has terrific views, sympathetic maintenance of the ruin. Great to wander around - plus there are the castle walls beyond the castle now incorporated within the houses and streets. Good cafe.
