There is ample parking both in the courtyard car park in front of the car park (25 cars) and in the main car park south of the castle (50 - 60 cars).
The large function room with its many divider screens sub-divides into many break-away conference rooms.
The smaller Music room can be used for a small Swansea Conference, leaving larger room free for dining, or converted into a lounge with screened off break-away areas.
Your conference delegates and training meetings can be kept moving around the Castle ground floor rooms and grounds, providing regular breaks and opportunities to meet each other in smaller groups and training workshops.
The main function room at Craig y Nos Castle South Wales is also used for Evening Buffets and as a Restaurant, typically before a performance or in the interval between performances or presentations in the Theatre.
Why Choose Craig y Nos Castle?
Craig y Nos Castle was pretty well purpose built for Conferences in South Wales. It used to house 40 servants in Adelina Patti's day, as well as a number of staff who retired and had nowhere to live.
Castles are generally large and interesting historically, and Craig y Nos is no exception to this rule!
Craig y Nos can easily host large groups in a setting that is gothic and striking - surrounded as it is in the Upper Swansea Valley, surrounded by the beautiful mountain scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
No room is the same, many period features remain, and many beamed rooms and a host of wood burning fires add to the ambience of this unique conference and meetings venue.
Not many castles however have accommodation. Craig y Nos Castle's group accommodation facilities range from en-suite to budget hostel standard and so can suit any group or conference organiser's pocket. However we are more geaared to Couples. If you had single occupancy of our 25 en-suites and 13 budget rooms, the maximum accommodation capacity would drop to around 35-40.
Our South Wales Conference Venue is in the Upper Swansea Valley on the A4067 (post code SA9 1GL) half-way between Brecon and Swansea.
Craig y Nos Castle is used as a venue for Group activity breaks, association meetings and small business conferences plus some filming. At weekends it is mainly used by Wedding Parties with large family accommodation occupancy, sleeping up to 81 in our en-suites and family rooms and 19 in our budget hostel standard annexe, the Nurses Block. Weekends are therefore not available for Conferences except for short notice unsold dates.
