What happened at Weobley Castle?

The buildings you’ll see as you walk around this captivating site were thought to be built between 1304 and 1327 by its owners, the de la Bere family, and was their home until the 15th-century.

You’ll see from the remains that the family wanted to create an elegant space, from the private withdrawing room to the grand hall, and guest chambers with indoor latrines.

An affluent family home is what you’ll think first of all from your venture around the picturesque grounds.

But the crenellated wall-tops, watchtower, and south-west tower were also prominent fixtures, preparing for the worst to happen.

An attack during the Glyndwr Rising in the early 15th century did cause some damage to the castle, but you’ll see that most of its frame remains unaffected and the architecture still showcases its lavish grandeur.

Soak up the history over a cuppa

Time to take a well-deserved rest at one of the picnic tables, crack open the biscuits and other treats you brought from home with a flask of hot tea.

It’s a prime opportunity to really take in the idyllic landscapes of the Gower Peninsula, imagining yourself at the scene of the gripping events that took place here and what it was like to be a member of the wealthy de la Bere family.

Before you set off, we suggest a browse through the gift shop to pick up some knick-knacks and guidebooks to reminisce on the captivating history you’ve explored on your visit.

Perhaps you’d like to spend more than just a day here next time? You can pitch up a tent at Weobley Castle Farm, taking in the glorious sea air and stunning landscapes that you’ll never want to leave.

We’re certain this is just the start of many more trips to Weobley Castle – the scenery across the Gower is an added bonus to the castle’s electrifying atmosphere.
