Well worth a visit, if you can find it! Typical of a ruined castle that has been lovingly restored; you can walk through the archways and see where the rooms had been, and imagine it as it must have been.
Been to Cowbridge many times but I'd never heard of this place. The medieval part dates from around 1300AD with most of the rest added around 1600AD. It's really a manor house and not a castle, and was home to the Bassett family until they backed the wrong horse in the civil war. Their wealth declined over the next 200... 更多
As previous reviews have mentioned the site is well hidden. The cows came to greet us but were soon encouraged to move away to let us pass. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. We live locally and were unaware this was here, it is very well kept, and certainly worth the walk through the fields.
Fascinating old castle, partially restored with 'rooms' to explore over three 'floors.' have been taking the kids for treasure hunts there for years!
Took a little finding and a gentle stroll across a couple of fields but it was well worth it. We had the benefit of good weather and were the only people there. It is not really a castle but the remains of an Elizabethan house. Kids had a great time exploring the ruins and there is a little bit of... 更多
Well worth a visit. Built around 1300 this was a manor house and is well preserved today. Wonderful to be able to walk through this building and see what life was like back then.
It's a little difficult to access, but is a superb site. However, parking is very limited on the road and involves perhaps a 600 yard walk across fields.
Hard to find site and the only sign post to it is hidden by hedges and only visible from one side of the road! Once parked up there is a walk across two fields - one was full of cows - and a gate tied shut with barbed wire (but climbable!) We got the impression the farmer doesn't want people... 更多
Well signposted from the road, but there are a couple of stiles to climb over, and a 10 min walk to the castle. Although there are cows in the fields they were not a problem but be aware of this if you take a dog. Lots of information boards in the castle. Whilst it's ruined its easy to image how... 更多
This is my third visit and I found it just as good as the first two, this is the chance to visit a fortified house from a time gone by, you do need to cross a couple of fields but as long as you follow the Country Code, it adds to the drama... Once inside the standing remains you find... 更多
