Craig Y Nos Castle
Craig-y-Nos Castle is nestled away in the scenic Brecon Beacons National Park. Once the home of famous opera singer Adelina Patti (10 February 1843 – 27 September 1919), the castle has a reputation as one of the most notorious haunted venues in the United Kingdom.
Its history is short but intriguing as it was not only graced by royalty in Patti’s day but was once a TB sanitorium and then a geriatric hospital before becoming the function house which it is today.
Still complete with the original embalming slab in the cellar and derelict hospital ward floors, the castle is the ideal venue for any paranormal enthusiast.
The function rooms are atmospheric and en-suite bedrooms are luxurious – what more could a paranormal investigator ask for?
Old castles with their links to the past often conjure up pictures of ghosts and paranormal events. Craig-y-Nos Castle is no exception and has established a reputation amongst “ghost watchers” who have experienced the special aura which captivates all those who sense it.
The castle offers mid-week ghost tours with seances, mediums and table tipping.
The Castle’s accommodation though is anything but scarey, with well appointed rooms and tasteful décor. We offer free wifi to guests and all rooms have a DVD player on account that not all rooms get a good TV reception. Continental breakfast is served midweek, unless you we have an Event, Conference, Wedding or planned Ghost Tour booked in which case we offer a Full English Cooked Breakfast. We have ample bars and guest lounges for you to sit back and relax.
But don’t think the Castle is just about Ghosts and Ghouls, because we are a favoured location for walkers and mountain bikers- where you can relax in the tranquil surroundings of the Brecon Beacons or get your adrenaline rush cycling across rough terrain. Simply wander through the Country Park and take in the views.
The Castle also holds numerous events throughout the year, ranging from Comedy Specials to Tribute Bands.
And don’t forget Craig Y Nos Castle is the ideal place to get married with a Listed Theatre for your Wedding Ceremony, a Function Room and Conservatory where you can enjoy your Wedding overlooking some stunning views.
