Towers and turrets, ramparts and romance. The relaxed luxury of a bygone age.
The area surrounding Glandyfi Castle is rich with activities. Machynlleth with its 2 galleries and bustling street market is 6 miles away. The sea side town of Borth is 20 minutes. drive, Ynyslas beach and nature reserve is 15 minutes. drive and the University coastal town of Aberystwyth with its marina is less than 30 minutes away. Across the estuary lies Aberdovey with its long sandy beaches, pretty harbour, and world renowned Golf course - 40 Minutes drive.
For those who wish to have a break from driving, Dovey junction lies only a few minutes drive away below the castle. The station lies on the direct line from Aberystwyth to Birmingham International with its links to all major U.K. stations. Staff at the castle will be pleased to collect guests from Dovey Junction.
Whether its birdwatching at the Ynys-hir bird reserve, fishing from the Dovey, walking in the Welsh hills, visiting the centre for Alternative technology, taking in some culture at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre, Shooting at the Dovey shooting ground, playing Golf at Aberdovey or simply lying on a beach, there is something for everyone - that is, if they can bear to drag them selves away from the castle!
