Looking for something to do with the little ones this summer? Discover Carreg Cennen Castle, the spectacular ruins which still defy gravity on the edge of the cliffs and close to the source of our water. In fact, Carreg from Brecon Carreg is actually named after this magnificent castle.
The castle has been in ruins since 1462, but is now in the caring hands of Cadw (the ones that created that amazing dragon at Caerphilly Castle), and they are working hard to preserve the site. There are plenty of nooks and crannies to explore, including six towers, kitchens, a chapel and the ‘King’s Chamber’, which has the best views.
Take a trip and see if you can find the cave, which hold the castle’s very own supply of water (although we’re sure residents would drink Brecon Carreg if they were still around today).
The castle is open all summer and with the tea rooms and visitors shop it’s an ideal family day out. Normal admission is £5 for adults and £3.50 for children, but Cadw members get free admission for exploring.
