Gwynedd - Wales

Originally this was a fortified manor house. In 1438 a licence to crenelate was granted to Ednyfed Fychan to built the castle and a tower house of stone.

In the 1780’s the English architect and engineer, Samuel Wyatt redesigned the building and between the years, 1820 and 1840 another English architect, much favoured by King George IV, was Thomas Hopper who expanded and transformed the castle out of all recognition for his patron, George Hay Dawkins-Pennant.

It is now in the care of the National Trust and is open to the public
