History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
This Walter Clifford was married to Margaret, the daughter of Llewelyn the Great. Henry III briefly took control of Bronllys in 1233, and used it to conduct negotiations with Llewelyn. It was later in the control of the Bohun family, but by the late 14th century it was already in a state of decay and played no real part in historical events after that.
Its not the easiest thing in the world to find Bronllys Castle; the site is screened by tall trees and bushes, and the signposting is a bit scanty. There's no car park, but there is a layby on the opposite sie of the road further up the hill. A short path leads from the road to the castle mound. Only the motte and tower can be visited; the surrounding baileys are on private property.
