Now the place is called Pennard Castle . At one point this must of been a majorly proud Castle protruding on the Vista like a Chippendale's appendage but now like all of us time has taken its toll and it is a mere flaccid sight...More

It is not very easy to get to and is basically 3 part walls. No information on site, so you need to do your homework to understand the history of the castle.

The view from the top is great and the view of the castle from the bottom is good. It's a steep hard walk up against the shifting sand cliff but worth it.

Pennard Castle can be reached by walking over the golf course or cliff tops, with the golf course offering an easier route. There isn't that much left of the castle itself (it is certainly not as spectacular as Oystermouth Castle, for instance) but there is...More

Its a ruin so entry is free& uncontrolled and it's always open - on a public footpath so dogs welcome, but I think dogs might not be permitted on the beach below in the summer months so do check. Might just be the beaches... More
