Located in the upper Swansea Valley on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, Craig Y Nos Castle is a romantic venue that would make a grand backdrop for any celebration. There are plenty of places to explore and take photographs both inside and out, such as the breathtaking grounds and stunning ceremony spaces.
Those of you looking to stay the night will love the 36 en suite bedrooms; there’s also an on-site gym with high-quality apparatus and a private lounge with a hot tub.
Celebrate in style
If you’re looking for a grand setting for your big day, you’ll love The Theatre. It’s one of only eight Grade I-listed opera houses in the UK and boasts a 125-year-old curtain depicting Madame Patti on a chariot in Rossini’s last Italian opera. Able to hold 120 of your nearest and dearest, there are plenty of details to admire, including the walls, which are decorated with the names of Patti’s favourite composers.
Once the ceremony has taken place, you can choose from several reception areas, including the Conservatory, which has room for 130 friends and family, and the Music and Billard Room, which can accommodate 120 of your loved ones.
The Patti Bar and Nicolini Lounge are located in the centre of the castle and are also available for your guests to use throughout the night.
Craig Y Nos Castle was once home to Adelina Patti, the world-famous opera singer, and has a long and interesting history dating back to 1841. Your family and friends can organise a tour of the castle to find out more about its fascinating past.
