St Donats Castle

Details

Standing above the Bristol Channel is the imposing St Donats Castle, which is the longest continually inhabited castle in Wales.

On selected dates St Donats Castle opens its doors to the public, and what a sight beholds the visitor!

Antique ceilings, fireplaces, a moat, battlements, dungeons - in short, over 800 years of history, which also included Celtic kings defying the Romans, ghosts wailing on stormy nights, executed pirates, and even a witch called Mally-y-Nos.

The castle was also a favourite haunt of some Hollywood legends who holidayed there while it was owned by the American millionaire William Randolph Hearst.
