Castle Hunting!

So, we’ve had a new brief – to advertise a Welsh tourist attraction through designing/redesigning a website, creating a leaflet to go with this and anything else we feel would help, like e-tickets etc.

Sally and I weren’t so sure about anything close to us in Cardiff as we felt these were places people would choose so we went a bit further out, into the Valleys to hunt for some castles and other places of interest. Sally ended up picking a house, park and castle at Dinefwr. It was gorgeous there, and although the house was shut for the day we wandered around the grounds over to the castle. We spent some time there looking at the view from different angles.

I chose to look at Carreg Cennen Castle. It has a lot of history and has been named ‘Most romantic ruin’ by Countryfile, which sounds pretty cool really! We paid for our tickets, and then set off up this big hill (that we weren’t expecting) and had a look around. As it is a ruin, most of the walls have been knocked down but you can still quite clearly see where the walls were, along with an oven, and arrow slits on most of the sides. There is also a cave! We went down so far, but as we didn’t rent a torch before hand we were relying on just our phone torches which wasn’t the best as there was no light whatsoever down there. We turned back and got back to the car just before the rain hit!
