Craig y Nos Castle in the Brecon Beacons, South Wales is a popular Welsh Castle Wedding Venue hosting up to 85 weddings a year. Each wedding takes the castle exclusively, so only one wedding is allowed each day.
Craig y Nos Castle is now offering free exclusive use of the entire Castle ground floor, for weddings under its two Wedding Packages. The ground floor of the castle comprises two principle function rooms seating 150 guests, a ceremony room (a grade one listed opera house licensed for wedding ceremonies), two bars, a Conservatory seating 125 for the wedding breakfast, plus further lounges.
Under the main 'Special Wedding Offer' Wedding Package, couples pay a discounted £40 per head for their Wedding Breakfast and Welcome Drinks. An evening buffet can be added for just £12.50 a head for those attending the wedding breakfast. Provided the Couple have 50 or more guests staying overnight at the Castle, each guest paying for their own B&B, the Couple get free exclusive use of this Castle Wedding Venue.
It is the guest's B&B use that cancels out the wedding venue hire, saving the couple over £3,000 against the Castle's regular Wedding Tariff and giving the Couple exclusive use of the venue for free.
Should a Wedding Couple not be able to get 50 of their guests to stay overnight on their wedding day, Craig y Nos Castle offers a second Wedding Package to Members of its Members Discount Club. Provided the Couple invite 125 guests to their Wedding Breakfast, they also get exclusive use of the castle for free, and pay just £40 per head for the Wedding Breakfast and Welcome Drinks.
Craig y Nos Castle is surrounded by the stunning mountain scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park. It adjoins the 40 acre dog friendly Craig y Nos Country Park and the Beacons Way, all excellent walking country, making the castle guesthouse a popular holiday location for dog walkers.
The Castle guesthouse offers dog owners (and regular holiday visitors) two night dog friendly breaks at 50% of the castle's regular B&B tariff, and three night dog friendly breaks at less than half the regular tariff. Dog friendly B&B breaks are only offered on nights when there is no wedding or other event taking the castle exclusively. See the castle's dog friendly website for loads of information on dog walks and days out with your dog in the Brecon Beacons area and South Wales generally.
Following the Castle's filming for Channel Four's 'Most Haunted' TV series in 2004, the Castle has become a popular haunt for Ghost Hunters, among whom it has gained a reputation as the Most Haunted Castle in Wales. Both serious Ghost Hunts and the more light-hearted Fright Nights and Hen Parties are conducted at Craig y Nos. Access to the cellars and haunted upper levels is not open to regular guests and ghost hunts are conducted only by approved, specialist Paranormal Investigators.
So if it is a wedding or other large event, or simply a mid-week B&B break, or even a ghost hunt you are after, Craig y Nos Castle in South Wales, steeped in history, surrounded by the Brecon Beacons National Park, is well worth checking out.
