Penrhyn Castle left me speechless. It is absolutely beautiful! Well worth a visit, lots of things to do and to see. And Lavender short breads were delicious!

We went on the Easter weekend with two young boys - first visit to this Castle.

They had the Cadbury's Easter trail but even better was the Bee trail full of interesting facts. Had we realised, this second trail took us past three Geocaches in the grounds.

Castle itself is mock Norman which on one hand isn't real but on the other is in great repair and one doesn't need an imagination to really see what a castle might have been like.

Inside there is lots more to see, from the kitchens, to railway artefacts and of course the cafe.

Great views out to the Irish sea and hills. Well worth a visit.

Visiting today and despite the wet weather we had a lovely afternoon, our daughter enjoyed the Cadbury Easter egg trail! The vintage steam trains and beautiful house are fabulous - well worth a visit

The castle (okay, mock castle), is superbly attractive inside and out with some absolutely stunning views.

The downside is that the castle doesn't open until 12, but the site opens at 10:30. We got on an early bird tour and were very disappointed. It was just a lot of talking about the members of the family who owned it (and were obviously disgusting people taking every advantage they could by trading in slaves, destroying local industry for their profits etc). We only got to see 2 rooms in 35 mins, when I would have preferred less chat and more rooms, so we could get a flavour of the house without the crowds. So visit the place, but go round on your own if you just want to see the beautiful rooms.

Wow.... after visiting many castles throughout the UK this took us by surprise.. . The castle somewhere 1800 could actually be a stately home... No expense spared back in the day.. The attention to detail is amazing.. the 100 plus doors all built by hand and locally mind blowing.. the wood finishes fantastic.. The italian style ceiling...so much to see.. Didn't want for anything. Being Easter we had an Easter egg hunt for the family... Great visit
