Really enjoyed our visit to this magnificent castle! The owners have done a wonderful job. Well worth the £6 entry fee, the gardens are also beautiful and one peacock in particular was very friendly. An easy walk from Llanrwst.

Yes. I can't recall the amount but it wasn't much and it goes toward the continuing restoration so you might contribute a little extra if you can. The tour is self-guided. One of the owners, Judy Corbett, has written a... More
