Small walk up the hill from the car park. Entry is £5.50 if you go into the farm shop to pay. Great little castle to explore with beautiful views.

Cool trail! Awesome castle - do not forget to take a look into cave! OUTSTANDING views over Black Mountain part of BB and Carmarthenshire. Everything would be just perfect besides one not nice experience which I had with the owners of the farm and cafe just below Castle who manage the entrance - Castle is on official list of Dark Skies Stargazing sites but there is NOT ALLOWED to get to property afterdark. I was really rude treated when try to get there (without knowledge that is not permitted). Be aware!

Lovely place. Have to pay to get into Castle though. We paid £16 for a family of four but we we enjoyed it. Lovely walks around the area too and if you fancy it, a lovely restaurant near the castle.
