Wales is home to some dazzling castles, some 600 in total! It is said that wherever you travel in this wonderful country you’re always near a castle. Wales was clearly a country worth fighting for!

There are several castles within an hour of Old Oak Barn and the closest is just 10 minutes away in Laugharne. What a tranquil setting this is, at the edge of the Taf estuary. Visitors from all over the world visit to enjoy some magnificent walks. The pic below was taken when there was a Dylan Thomas Centenary Vintage car run from Swansea to Laugharne in June 2014.

Other beautiful castles nearby include Dynevor Castle which is approx 30 minutes away.

Castle Dinefwr

We also love visiting Carew Castle in Pembrokeshire. The famous Carew family take their name from the place, and still own the castle, although it is leased to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, which administers the site.
