Wales in 2 week Lockdown till 9th November
19/10/2020: 14:04 hrs: A two-week "fire break" lockdown covering the whole of Wales has been confirmed by Mark Drakeford, the Welsh First Minister. "Everyone in Wales will be required to stay at home," he told a press conference, with the lockdown starting from Friday (October 23) and lasting until November 9. "This means working from home wherever possible and the only exceptions will be critical workers and jobs where working from home is simply not possible.
All non-essential retail, leisure, hospitality and tourism businesses will close in Wales. Accordingly the castle will not open for the October Halloween ghost tours or on the planned Selected Opening Dates during the two week lockdown period which should end on November 9th. Wedding Viewings cannot be accepted during this lockdown period, but you can choose the remote viewing option (or just choose a date after 9th November!)
After Nov 9th, the remaining Ghost Tours and Selected Opening Dates will go ahead, as originally planned, subject to any COVID restrictions limiting our ability to open at the time. All bookings during the lockdown period for Tours and DB&B are hereby cancelled. Refunds for ghost tours, where deposits were charged, will be made shortly and all D,B&B bookings will be emailed to advise of cancellation. We will update this site further once more details are known, probably after 9th November! We offer our sincere apologies to all affected guests as we really had hoped we could offer a Halloween break this year.
We are currently only offering Dinner, B&B alongside selected small events. So you can only book to stay on these selected D,B&B dates - shown below. Please only complete the enquiry form if you wish to stay on the dates shown as open for B&B.
You can also complete the form if you are happy to be included in our accommodation update emails and any D,B&B promotions/ discount deals where we can offer you key seasonal dates such as Christmas, New Year's Eve, Valentines etc.
12/10/2020: Christmas Opening: 1 Night - Christmas Day - £150 - please check in before 10.30 (or check in by phone/ email if arriving later!) or 2 Nights - Xmas Eve /Christmas Day - £290, or 2 Nights - Christmas Day/Boxing Day £300, or 3 Nights - Xmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day £370. Xmas Lunch £60 per head.
Xmas Dinner booking and D,B&B bookings can now be made on the form below. Rates are £150 B&B for two in an en-suite, £60 per person for Christmas Dinner and there is a discount to half price on the third night of a three night stay over Christmas. Due to social distancing rules the Christmas Lunch will be served in two sittings of max 42 guests in the dining room. Note that in Wales, the Rule of 6 requires that you all come from the same extended family of four households. Also note that we cannot accept guests from areas in local lockdowns. As we are in very rural Powys, the Castle should remain outside any local lockdown areas and hopefully other areas will come out of local lockdown by Xmas.
"A unique gothic dog friendly Welsh Castle, conveniently set within a glorious 40 acre Country Park with idyllic shaded Woodland paths, Lakes and off-the-lead Dog Walks - right on your doorstep"
2020 Availability -
We are closed until Spring 2021 other than on
Selected Opening Dates alongside small events - shown below.
Other than for the Selected Opening Dates below, B&B will only be offered to Guests of pre-booked events. As we come slowly out of Coronavirus Lockdown we do not know when we will be able to fully re-open. The castle cannot economically support B&B for very low guest numbers, so we will for a few months limit opening to nights with events on. We do not anticipate fully opening for 'regular' B&B until Spring 2021.
You can book a B&B stay on any of the selected opening dates below.

Normal rate £150 B&B per night at weekends, or £140 B&B per night weekdays, but on Selected Opening Dates we are offering
- One night's Dinner (three courses) and B&B for £175 for two, in an en-suite (a discount of £25) and
- Two consecutive nights, Dinner, B&B for £285 for two, in an en-suite (a discount of £115).
As we are currently only offering B&B as part of an event, or alongside smaller events, please only complete the enquiry form if you are able to stay on one of the selected nights, or if you are happy to be included in our accommodation update emails.
We will send everyone on our mailing list notifications of B&B promotions/ discount deals we may offer - such as on key seasonal dates - Christmas, New Year's Eve, Valentines etc.
The Castle remains closed for larger weddings and events as the regulations do not currently allow larger gatherings.
We anticipate it could be some time before ordinary B&B and larger wedding events can fully resume. Our primary business is weekend weddings and events which 'subsidise' quieter midweek days, enabling us to offer discounted Dog Friendly midweek B&B breaks. We anticipate there won't be enough B&B demand to justify fully re-opening until Spring 2021. We can offer D,B&B breaks on specific opening nights, alongside smaller weekend events.
While we remain closed for 'general' B&B, we'll open up on specific key calendar dates such as Halloween, Christmas etc. Add yourself to our dog friendly discount breaks mailing list for offers on these dates.
