Book your stay in Cardigan Castle, Georgian Restoration of the Year! For a unique holiday, stay in one of the luxury heritage apartments in the grounds of this 900 year old Welsh castle.
Cardigan Castle (Castell Aberteifi) stands on the border between Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire in West Wales. It is believed to be the first stone castle ever built by a Welshman and holds a unique place in Welsh culture as the site of the first Eisteddfod.
Following a £14 million restoration project, Cardigan Castle won the Georgian category of the RICS Awards and in March 2017, it was featured in the Channel 4 programme ‘Great British Buildings: Restoration of the Year’, presented by Kevin McCloud (Grand Designs) with historian Dr Anna Keay, Director of the Landmark Trust (Restoring Britain’s Landmarks).
Cardigan Castle will feature once again in Thursday night’s episode of Great British Buildings when it goes head to head with the other category winners for the overall Restoration of the Year title.
The luxurious accommodation on offer at Cardigan Castle is in great demand – even more so since it was showcased in the TV programme. Here are the beautiful self-catering options for you to choose from, each affords complimentary access to the grounds during your stay.
Gardener’s Cottage is a ‘topsy turvy’ luxury holiday cottage for 2 at Cardigan Castle. It has been designed with the bedroom downstairs and living space upstairs to make the most of the wonderful view of the garden and grounds. This is a great choice for an exclusive romantic break in a dramatic setting.
East Wing (sleeps 8)
East Wing sleeps 8 in four double en suite bedrooms and it is truly luxurious. This is a fantastic large self-catering holiday cottage which is just perfect for reunions or getting together with friends. The flagstone floors add to its charm and remind you of your historic surroundings.
The Coach House (sleeps 2, accessible)
The Coach House is an accessible, wheelchair-friendly holiday cottage for 2 set in the grounds of Cardigan Castle. The former coach house has been beautifully converted for you to enjoy a relaxing holiday in spectacular surroundings, with an enclosed patio garden.
Y Goron (sleeps 4)
Y Goron is part of the Cardigan Castle family but is positioned just outside of the castle walls. It is a two-storey apartment on the upper floors of Ty Cadwgan and enjoys lovely views of the castle grounds and the river. Although you are not within the castle itself, this is a superb, central location from where you can conveniently explore the town and surrounding areas.
Good luck to Cardigan Castle in the next phase of the process and we hope they will go forward to win the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors’ Restoration of the Year award!
