Craig y Nos Castle
Dog Friendly Self-Catering for
1 week in a Castle Flat

- one week for £600 (6 people)
- daily rate £100/ day (min 4 days)

We can offer week-long self-catering breaks in various flats in winter months only when there are few weddings - typically January and February.

Minimum Stay - 4 days

You can stay one week, or for a minimum of 4 nights self catering. The self-catering nightly rate is £100/ night for up to 6 guests.

Or you can combine a 3 night self catering stay with a one night D,B&B stay on a Selected Opening Date, to extend your stay up to 4 days minimum, enjoying Dinner and Breakfast on one day of your minimum 4 day stay.
You will also get the use of a Lounges, TV room and Spa whenever there are no weddings on. There may still  be some small weddings during your self catering stay. The Castle's self-catering options include:

Theatre First Floor Flat

Theatre First Floor Flat - sleeps four in two small bedrooms. Flat includes nice bathroom and kitchen - quite small but cosy and you have access to all the gardens and grounds.

You have access to the sitting rooms in the main building - see Nicolini Lounge and TV room.

For more than four, you would also use the upstairs Theatre Loft, which is a separate double en-suite directly above the flat. This offers you another double room. Alternatively, if a ground floor room was preferred (say if you have dogs) the Theatre ground floor right or left (see below) could be added instead.

You can occupy any combination of the above (using Flat and Loft en-suite double or Flat and one ground floor double en-suite room) as self catering accommodation.

Self-Catering Holidays at our Castle

1 Mile from Penycae Inn Gastro Pub

To enquire about self-catering, email

No neighbouring properties and unlike other holiday lets, you are not confined to a small cottage but instead have a flat within a large castle and its grounds.

Nor are you anywhere near an owner's residence and having to watch how your family behave all the time or be careful how loud you are.

You are completely independent in your part of the castle. Craig y Nos is a unique and alternative self-catering week-long break offering in the holiday lets market.

Theatre Green Room

We also have Theatre Green room which has two double beds in it - one on ground floor, one in an upper level plus a shower room, and a kitchen.

This can be taken in conjunctions with the Theatre Ground Floor Left and / or Theatre Ground Floor Right rooms.

Atrium Rooms:
A third option exists in another area of the castle, but we will only use this area once the two above areas are booked. We will offer this third area if the first two flats become fully booked, if weddings remain impossible.

Nurses Block Kitchen / Sitting room
with neighbouring en-suites

The Nurses Block is budget hostel style accommodation converted 18 years ago when we thought there was a market for groups of walkers and back-packers. In the end we never really used the Nurses Block for this purpose. Instead weddings became the main business for the Castle. In hindsight we should have made this building into en-suites. Now we use it for overflow / budget accommodation. The Nurses Block does have the benefit of a large sitting room (as it was designed for groups) with a small galley kitchen in it.

The Nurses Bllock's kitchen diner cum sitting room can be used with neigbouring en-suites. The Nurses Block building is five metres from the en-suites. Click on each picture to see more on each room or area. Pictures below are of En-Suite room AB13, which is on two levels and sleeps four.
So under this combination you would use the Nurses Block kitchen and sitting room for communal family living, and a selection of en-suites in the Artium Block adjacent to the Nurses Block, for your higher standard accommodation.

AB13 will sleep 4 and AB11 (with disabled bathroom) 2 or 3. Using these rooms in conjunction with the Nurses Block sitting room offers you another self-catering area. The cost is £650/ week, self-catering, for the combination of AB13, AB11 and Nurses Block Kitchen/ Lounge.

Click on each picture to see more on each room or area. More pictures of AB13 below:
You do have to go outside from your en-suite bedroom across to the neighbouring building for the use of the kitchen and sitting room, which would be exclusively yours. In addition there is a small garden / rough grass area which is suitable for sitting out in and useful for dogs (on leads as not fully fenced in). See pictures below.

Click on each picture too see more on each room or area. Pictures below are of Nurses Block garden area/ building and of the lounge - which has a galley kitchen beside it.
Pictures below are of AB11, which is a disabled room sleeping three. You may not need this room if there are only four of you willing to share AB13, but if there are six of you, you would use this room as well.

If you do not want AB13 or AB11, alternative en-suites such as AB31,

or AB16,

are available instead, if preferred. These are good rooms as well, but are slightly further from the Nurses Block.
