Craig Y Nos Castle sits on the banks of the river Tawe, with the 'Sleeping Giant' mountain to the West and the Brecon Beacons to the East. We are equidistant between Swansea and the Gower in the south, and Brecon, a beautiful historical market town, in the north.  

  The castle makes an ideal venue for away breaks, frightening paranormal events, or for your special day. There are views of the courtyard and grounds from your bedroom. This mountainous area, with its interesting rural lanes and off-road tracks, provides magnificent opportunities for rides & walks throughout the Brecon Beacons National Park.

We offer rooms and activities suitable for all, from dormitory accommodation to luxury new en-suites, from mountain biking and activity weekends to ghost hunting and historical tours of the castle.

We also provide facilities for function of all kinds, most often conferences, parties, weddings and banquets.

This historic building has been home to the famous opera singer, Adelina Patti, and is said to still be haunted by her presence.

Craig Y Nos Castle was a hospital for 60 years after Patti's death before becoming a hotel and functions house.
All the comforts of the castle are offered together with a friendly service that will realise your every expectation for an enjoyable visit. By day you can try pony trekking, caving, walking, mountain biking and many other outdoor activities. On winter evenings relax by a real log fire in the Patti Bar, or in summer just enjoy the views from the patio.

There are a number of public rooms: the Breakfast Room with huge Sky TV, a huge Billiards and Music Room, and the quiet peaceful Patti Bar with real log fire. Light bar snacks are available in the Patti Bar and a new restaurant is due to be opened soon in the cellars.

We have 16 newly refurbished, very pleasant en-suite rooms at £80.00 to £95.00 per room per night (2 people B&B) or £55.00 single occupancy midweek.

We also have 10 non en-suite doubles at £60.00 (2006) per room, B&B for two. We also have budget accommodation at £22.00 per person per night B&B. So all your guests can stay over.

Craig Y Nos with its listed gardens and stunning location overlooking the River Tawe makes a fantastic venue for events all year round.
