Kidwelly Castle is a Norman castle overlooking the River Gwendraeth. The castle is still quite intact and very interesting; we were able to hire an audio tour which took us right into the centre of the battle! You can visit a dungeon, the upper gatehouse, a tower which provided spectacular views of the surrounding country side, two further partial towers, the castle walls and a church. There is a good model showing each area of the castle with explanations for each part. The grounds are nice and an ideal place for a picnic and for kids to play.
Kidwelly castle is a 20 minute drive from the penthouse.
