Book your stay in Cardigan Castle, Georgian Restoration of the Year! For a unique holiday, stay in one of the luxury heritage apartments on the grounds of this 900-year-old Welsh castle.
The Castle (Castell Aberteifi) stands on the border between Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire in West Wales. It is believed to be the first stone castle ever built by a Welshman and holds a unique place in Welsh culture as the site of the first Eisteddfod.
Following a £14 million restoration project, Cardigan Castle won the Georgian category of the RICS Awards and in March 2017. It was featured in Channel 4’s ‘Great British Buildings: Restoration of the Year’, presented by Kevin McCloud (Grand Designs).
Cardigan Castle featured in Great British Buildings where it went head to head for the overall Restoration of the Year. The luxurious accommodations are in great demand – even more so since it was showcased in the TV programme.
