On selected dates St Donats Castle opens its doors to the public, and what a sight beholds the visitor!
Antique ceilings, fireplaces, a moat, battlements, dungeons - in short, over 800 years of history, which also included Celtic kings defying the Romans, ghosts wailing on stormy nights, executed pirates, and even a witch called Mally-y-Nos.
The castle was also a favourite haunt of some Hollywood legends who holidayed there while it was owned by the American millionaire William Randolph Hearst.
St Donat's Castle is also a luxurious wedding venue like no other. The Bradenstoke Hall, Inner Courtyard, Great Hall and Dining Hall boast an abundance of charm and character for the perfect wedding venue, with exposed bath stone walls and 20ft ceilings – a neutral palette to complement any wedding decor. The original Tudor gardens and lawns are perfectly manicured and sweep down to the Bay of St Donat’s providing the most incredible picture-perfect moments for a photographer to capture.
