This is probably only of interest to the Welsh as its not really a castle that you see, it's castle walls and a house! Definitely not worth £7. Also if you are going and want to go in the...

Absolutely beautiful place, not the biggest castle but very pretty, well renovated and lots of info spots. The on site restaurant I cannot hype enough. Catered for my nut allergy without any issues/fuss. I had the steak and cheese baguette and it was incredible. The on site shop was decently priced I thought. The icing on top is that for every ticket you get free entry for an entire year so you could visit as much as you liked for that. £7 entry for adults.
Interesting venue with plenty of history and recently set up document archive that's not yet digitised. Very well kept grounds and plenty of information in the house itself (dogs not allowed inside) even a play ground for smaller children. Not quite enough for more than a half day but with a ticket giving you a full years access is worth keeping the receipt for a return visit.
