One can't guarantee dry days for an entire week in Wales and this was true for us on a recent holiday. We visited Castell Henllys with our daughter and 5 year old granddaughter and a great time was had by all! The nearby car park...More

This reconstructed iron age for on the original site is well worth a 2-3 hour visit. The site is beautifully laid out so you are drawn along footpaths to the fort itself (reconstructed roundhouses that include a Chiefs house, meeting house, granary, forge etc). We...More
