The Walk from the Car park to the Castle takes approx 10-15 minutes and is accessible to pushchairs. The assent to the castle is a fairly steep grass bank so accessibility for the disabled or less mobile is dependant on the aids available to them. There are several steps into the Inner ward of the castle over the barbican.

This is not a dog walking area but a Historic Monument and working farm and we offer a warm welcome to responsible dog owners wishing to enjoy this iconic site. Dogs must be kept on leads at all times. Guide dogs only inside the tea rooms and gift shop.
The Castle is perched on a 300ft cliff edge and grazed by livestock - please ensure that your dog is under close control, worried stock have been known to flee off the cliff.
The woods beneath the castle are a haven for adders - keep dogs under very close control and seek immediate medical or veterinary help if bitten. Bins are only provided in the Car Park but ideally please take your litter home.

There are two circular walks around Carreg Cennen Castle. Both walks are marked with signposts. During wet months these walks can be slippery and muddy in places.
If your walking with a dog please ensure you are extremely cautious not to worry any stock. These are footpaths through privately owned farmland.

As a landowner, we do not permit drone operation from any of our land and properties. We occasionally make use of drones for survey, inspection, filming and photography. Such work is commissioned in response to a specific need and undertaken for us by professional contractors. We may also grant permission for drone-related commercial filming by established professional production companies in certain circumstances. Drone flying by members or by the general public We do not grant permission for private flying from our land and properties for the following reasons: Our members and visitors value the peace and tranquillity of our places. The presence of drones can impinge on the quiet enjoyment of our places by other visitors and therefore potentially presents a public nuisance risk. Many of our places have wildlife or agricultural animals which are sensitive to disturbance, such as birds, sheep, cattle and horses, which could be alarmed or stressed by the presence of drones, especially at breeding times. Castle Farm is also home to the Llewellyn family and we ask you to respect and value their privacy and drone use would be an infringement of that privacy. Most drones have cameras attached the use of which could contravene our rules on commercial photography and filming. If a drone causes damage or harm, pilots who are members of the general public rarely have the correct insurances, or level of insurances, to adequately compensate those affected. Flying by contractors We do make use of drones if there is a benefit in doing so. Such occasions could include roof inspections or wildlife surveys. However, in such cases we will specifically commission the work from carefully selected professional contractors. In these circumstances we are able to check the competence, qualification and certification of the contractor, stipulate appropriate levels of insurance and set up appropriate conditions and controls on work to ensure public safety, resident privacy and minimise disturbance to wildlife. We do not respond to cold calling from contractors seeking to sell drone related services. Commercial Filming We may grant permission for drone-related commercial filming in certain circumstances. In general terms the production company must follow the same competency and insurance rules as those required for contractors. In addition, the filming must be commercial in nature and agreed with our filming office. The applications that we may consider are those that come from recognised production companies who are using drone footage as part of a wider production which will also include filming on the ground with actors and presenters. Contractually the footage can only be used for the named project and further use including image libraries is prohibited. We will not grant permission to fly for amateur or student filming or approve requests from any fliers who seek permission in return for access and use of the footage obtained.
