“Awesome walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

Its an awesome walk and there's stunning views once you reach the castle. If you choose to walk down to the beach, there are no facilities down there but its a beautiful area to go to throughout the year. If you have walking difficulties there's flatter access to the beach via parkmill as the walk back to pennard can be strenuous at times.

“Breathtaking Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

Best way to get to the castle is to park in a side road on the left just passed the local school and village hall at the entrance to Pennard, then walk acrss the road onto the golf course, don't worry waymarked paths across the whole are,lol, also great for dogs to run free, follow the paths across to the castle and then just stand, open mouthed,lol like all visitors do at the wonderful views across the the bay below, there is a circular path that will take you down to the beach via a wooden walkway beside the quiet river and on to the huge open and beautiful bay, if wanted you can turn left and along the beach onto Three Cliffs and up to the car p[ark where there are two coffee shops selling freshly made home cooked food, obviously dogs on leads but they are welcome in the seating area outside. If wanted just do the circular route around the golf course and back to your car. This is one place I would certainly advise seeing just for the views.

“long walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014

Saw this Castle from many angles on a long walk from Parc Le Breos B & B to Oxwich Bay and back ! Was flagging at the end so walked underneath it rather than up to it . A picturesque ruin.

“My favourite view”

I've been walking over Pennard golflinks to the Castle for over 30 years. I still sense the same excitement when I reach the most spectacular view around. Priceless.
