Ogmore castle location is right beside ogmore river in a very picturesque location. The castle is free too enter and is well looked after with the usual information boards dotted around. Ogmore is small compared to other castles and is a ruin but you still...More

Great castle to walk around, with walks nearby and also a great pub opposite for that well earned triple after your sightseeing/walk. Well worth a visit.

Brilliant place to visit on a sunny day. The castle is amazing and full of history. Lovely area for a pic nic and take in the sites. Also Horse riding available. And stepping stops over the river. Great day out for all.

Picturesque view of the castle with the hills in the background. There is a river nearby with stepping stones across the river. I would expect to spend 30 to 45 minutes here

Ancient ruins where you are left to explore at your own pace. Lovely location for a picnic and it’s always fun crossing the stroll stones on the river!

We nipped here on passing. Although it's only ruins it's worth a visit. Kids enjoyed crossing stream on the stepping stones. This castle was free to visit. No toilets here, but a nice pub just a minute up the road.

Always a worthwhile stop on a walk. Close to historic stepping stone across the nearby river and to an excellent pub!
