CRAIG Y NOS EVENTS

Sold out

The Castle claims to have strong paranormal phenomena
The Castle was also once used as a childrens ward to those children suffering from TB. The recovery rate was extremely low and many children never left. The Top Childrens Ward is the most active room in the building and guests can investigate the room where several beds have been laid out (sleep there if you dare?!)

Craig Y Nos Castle is actually a Victorian Gothic Country House built on parkland in the upper Swansea Valley. Built between 1841 and 1843 by Captain Rice Davies Powell, it was said that the Powell family were cursed! His youngest son passed away in 1851 from cholera, his wife and daughter died before the Captains death in 1862 and 2 years later his eldest son was killed in an accident. The estate was left to his eldest daughter who sold the property in 1876 to the Morgan Family.In 1878 the property exchanged hands again, this time, purchased by Adelina Patti. At this time Adelina had become famous for being an opera star and it is during her ownership of the property, that the North and South wings, conservatory, clock tower and theatre were added. The Adelina Patti theatre is a grade I listed opera house at Craig Y Nos Castle, the beautiful auditorium with lavish paintings, panelled walls, stage area and sloping floors can still be enjoyed today.In more recent years the castle has functioned as a hospitality venue and runs as a hotel. Most of the revenue generated is ploughed back into the property to help maintain and slowly restore the property. Many parts of the upper floors are abandoned and derelict. It is this that makes this location unique.
