Wales has gained a reputation as the land of castles and for good reason. In Bridgend alone, you can visit the collection of Newcastle, Ogmore and Coity known simply as The Three Castles, or go to see Candleston Castle or Dunraven Castle. It’s a great place for large groups to celebrate special occasions, couples who can discover the romantic scenery, or families looking for a holiday full of adventure and intrigue.
