It is not surprising to see majestic castles standing tall in many areas of Wales. These castles have stood as silent witnesses to the passage of time and the rich history of Wales. When you visit Wales and stay at the luxurious Wales holiday cottages, you must not miss going to the different castles in the country. Wales holiday cottages will put you within near distance to these historic places. Here are two of the great castles in Wales.

Bodelwyddan Castle

This beautiful Victorian Castle is located in Denbigshire and is a short drive away from your Wales holiday cottages. This beautiful Victorian Castle is set in 260 acres of formal gardens, parkland and natural woodland. It was built in the 15th century but was remodeled in the 1820s in the Gothic revival style. In the 1980s, the period rooms were restored to its magnificent glory and it now houses the artworks from the National Portrait Gallery, V&A and Royal Academy. The park has an adventure play area for the kids added on in 2011. You can also see the remains of rare practice trenches that date back to World War I and will take you back to all the horrors of war. The open parkland that surrounds the castle is ideal for games as well as picnics so you must bring a picnic basket prepared at your self-catering Wales holiday cottages. There are also formal gardens and a woodland walk that goes through an orchard, a butterfly glade and a bird hide.

There is a Victorian games room that you might want to try out and a garden maze if you have the time. You can enjoy having some tea and snacks at the tea room and buy some souvenirs at the gift shop before you leave. The Castle is open on different times during the year so it would be best to call their office and inquire for the schedule on the day that you want to go there. Admission fee is £6.60 for adults, £5.50 for seniors and students and £2.75 for children up to 16 years. Group rates and family tickets are available. Children below 5 years old and disabled visitor’s carer are free.

Conwy Castle

The Conwyn Castle stands majestically on a rock above the Conwy estuary. This dark stoned fortress has an authentic medieval look to it. Rising high above the backdrop of the spectacular Snowdonia skyline, this historic site continues to draw as much attention today as it did during its time. It was built between the years 1283 to 1289 at a cost of £15,000 which was the largest single sum that King Edward spent in building a castle. It was designed by King Edward’s popular military architect, James of St George and was a replacement for Deganwy Castle which was destroyed by Llywelyn the Last. Today, the Castle is a Scheduled Ancient Monument managed by Cadw and part of the World Heritage Site.

The castle is open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the 1st April to 31st June and 1st September to 31st October. From 1st July to 31st August, it is open 9:30 to 6 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Admission fee is £4.80 for adults, £4.30 for seniors, students and children from 5 to 16 years while family tickets cost £13.90. Children below 5 years are free of charge.
