Carreg Cennen Castle & Farm is Situated in 1 mile north east of Trapp, just 4 miles from Llandeilo in Carmartheshire, on the western fringe of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

The Castle, Tea Rooms and Craft Shop are open 364 days a year, yes that's right we only have Christmas Day off!

Carreg Cennen Castle is one of the few remaining privately owned Castles in Wales.

The Castle came to be privately owned due to a legal discrepancy when Gwilym Morris, Margaret's father bought the farm from the Cawdor Estate in the early 1960's. The Land which he bought included the land on which the Castle stands, hence he had aquired the castle as part of the farm. On realisation of their mistake the Cawdor Estate tried to buy the castle back for £100, he of course refused and hense why it is ours today.

Margaret and Bernard took over the farm in 1977 from Margaret's parents Gwilym and Molly who retired to the nearby town of Llandeilo and it is since then that Castle and Farm has been gradually developed into the Tourism enterprize that it now is.

We have a management agreement with Cadw, Wales' equivalent to English Heritage, which means that they take care of any necessary upkeep to the castle.
