Immerse yourself in 900 years of history with a stay in Cardigan Castle (Castell Aberteifi). Offering exclusive luxury self-catering in this dramatic setting, with its own private hot tub, East Wing is a stylishly elegant holiday home set within the grounds of the Castle. This beautiful 5-star renovation is enhanced by original features, where you can tread the ancient slate flagstones, or curved tower walls as you descend the stairs, and open the wooden shutter to spy the Castle battlements through the sash window.

Cardigan Castle is believed to be the first stone castle ever built by a Welshman. To celebrate its completion in 1176, Lord Rhys ap Gruffydd hosted a gathering of bards, musicians, and performers: the first Eisteddfod, and the start of the Welsh tradition of cultural festivals that continues today. All guests are invited to explore the Castle grounds, sit in the Eisteddfod chair, and enjoy complimentary access to events and performances held at the Castle during their stay.

Open between 10 am and 4 pm to visitors, at other times the Castle grounds are for the exclusive enjoyment of guests in the cottages and B&B accommodation, except when evening events are held. Cardigan is an historic market town, with a theatre, Guildhall market, a variety of independent shops and galleries, and some lovely restaurants, pubs, and cafes to eat at – including ‘1176’, the castle restaurant. Look forward to long days exploring the unspoilt beauty of Cardigan Bay, and to enjoying a drink together in the Castle gardens after the day visitors have gone.
