This superbly restored gentry manor house is no ordinary heritage attraction. History here is tangible. The costumed servants of the house are living and working in 1645 and allow you to share and engage in their world. Fires crackle, candles flicker and the sounds and smells of domestic life make your visit a memorable experience of the past. It takes a moment to attune your ear to the unfamiliar speech within the Manor itself, but within seconds of your warm welcome you become immersed in the time of the Civil Wars and the cares and concerns of ordinary people living in extraordinary times.
Went there on a very wet day, and, coincidentally, it was end of term, so no School parties. We were the only visitors when we were there, but the staff still went the extra mile to give us the full experience. They do re enactments, so the staff dress as servants and speak in a kind of old English that was still perfectly understandable. It is set at the time of the Civil War and the house is furnished/displayed accordingly. So it was a double delight, the house was lovely, but the role playing added an extra dimension. Really appreciated the lengths the 'servants' went to in order to enrich the experience. Also, we ate a meal in the cafe that was very nice. A great day out!

Lots of lovely walks. Some breathtaking views over the Bristol Channel from the south side of the mountain. Many footpaths around the mountain. Can see horses, cows and sheep on some of the public footpath routes.

The fortress sprawls over a huge area making it the largest castle in Wales. Like the famous cheese, the castle has long been synonymous with Caerphilly. It dominates. Hogs the limelight. Think slumbering giant awaiting a call to arms. It's also a great backdrop for TV and film. It secured a starring role recently in the popular BBC TV series Merlin. The displayed opening times are our general pattern. Please check the Cadw website for specific times and days, including closures.
Caerphilly castle is simply stunning. It's a great walk for the kids, they can feed the ducks and enjoy the walk around the castle. There is an entry fee to go inside the castle but it is a must do and is very interesting. A great day out.

Worth a visit to see the design of this bridge and to learn about the history. The Man on the roundabout also is very eye catching and significant.
