Wales on Line Review of Craig y Nos Castle
10th May 2023
"The little known haunted gothic mansion with gorgeous and tranquil grounds you can just lose yourself in...."
Nestled half way between Swansea and Brecon is a stunning gothic mansion which looks as though it has leapt straight off the page of a romantic fairytale book. Built in roughly 1841 on what is now the A4067 between Pen-y-Cae and Glyntawe, and steeped in history, it's no wonder why the impressive building, with its ornate stone facade, .... is why so many couples choose Craig-y-Nos as a perfect yet unique wedding venue, using Adelina Patti's grand theatre for an unforgettable ceremony and the country park for a breathtaking photo opportunity. read more..
