Recommends: Local Poppet beach ideal for seaside walks. Enjoyed visits to New Quay and Newport.Anthony from Bexley, Kent - 8th January 2017
The accommodation was of a very high standard and was a lovely setting for a family Christmas. Poppets Beach made for a great walk on Boxing Day and the Cardigan Brasserie served imaginative, well presented and tasty food.Family from Hertfordshire - 31st December 2016

This is the East Wing of the Castle and a section of Castle House that shares a private courtyard and garden area with one other small apartment. This is a unique opportunity to stay in an historic castle. Dating back to the 11th century, this is the first recorded Welsh masonry castle and has had many famous battles. The castle is also central to Welsh history and was attacked and taken by the Welsh and Normans in turn several times each. Former owners include Lord Rhys who in 1176 put on an elaborate festival that was the forerunner to the Eisteddfod - a festival that still takes place to this day. In addition to staying within a castle, you can also visit many others locally, including Cilgerran only 3 miles away.
