I visited last Sunday the 19th December. The weather was cold and a must was surtoung the castle. The temperature in the bright sun was about 2° . The sun beamed through the trees casting spurts of light amongst the leaves and around the castle. Stunning

having recently moved to this area, we were keen to discover trhe best attrctions locally.
So this had to be visited and it is so good that we will be back again.

There was a problem at the entry as National Trust had not sent us our new membership tickets, but John (Reception) sorted it for us and also arranged a buggy to take us (pensioners!) up the slope to the castle.

On the way there are strategically-placed benches, so that you canenjoy the stunning views across to the sea and mountains.

The "castle" (Victorian country house) is so complete and interesting, but time ran out. Highlights for next time will be the railway museum and cafeteria.

Visited Penrhyn Castle with extended family on a pleasant Autumn afternoon.

The walk up to the castle is a very pleasant experience on its own with views down the coast and over to Snowdonia. On the other side the Menai Straits can be seen. Having enjoyed that we opted for refreshments in the form of scones and hot drinks before visiting the inside of the castle.

The cafes seem to have a fair amount of seating with lots more outside for the warmer months. All are well signposted.

The castle itself is very well preserved, although we only saw the ground floor. Although the history of the owners certainly provokes a debate which is emphasised throughout, the very impressive talents of the local workforce is worth close inspection.

There was some good interaction with guides around the castle too. The staff in the shop were friendly too - plenty of things of interest to browse in there too.

Once outside we enjoyed discovering the gardens which were large and well looked after. We finished with the little railway museum which was interesting too.

Even with the inside tour being limited to the ground floor this was still a very enjoyable day.

We arrived at the castle on a very wet day. Luckily the castle was open to the public.
Inside is amazing with all the wood work. Carved arches and panelling, the thickness of the doors and cabinets is a sight to behold.
The guides were very helpful answering any question asked and more.
Pity it was such a bad day as we would have liked to look round the gardens. (maybe
next time )

The walk up the drive provides stunning views out to sea and you pass giant trees 500 years old. The castle looks imposing and just a little too perfect from outside. But when you glimpse the ornate stone and woodwork inside it’s craftsmanship on a level I’ve rarely seen before. The rooms are cavernous and stuffed full of opulent possessions.

The walled garden is a terraced beauty, with a novel bog garden at its lowest point.

I’m looking forward to returning when the the rest of the rooms are open.

Fantastic castle in excellent condition. The castle is fully accessible. It's set in lovely grounds. The decor is in excellent condition. You can see bedrooms, kitchen and scullery and all areas where the staff would have worked. The staff are very helpful and answer any questions you may have. Would recommend a visit.

Despite it being a damp, grey day the Castle does nothing to lift spirits! It's a very sombre, depressing place. Built as a folly not a real castle and only to impress Queen Victoria! There aren't many paintings to decorate the walls, the corridors are dark, there is nothing at all homely or even resembling a place which has been lived in. For us the amount charged for entrance wasn't good value as there is little to see. A large garden which on a dry day would be good to wander around.

It’s National Trust so you expect to pay a premium. Despite reading previous reviews , it’s very easy to find the Castle/home at the top of the hill. …………… it really is eye catching to see Penryn from the outside. However, seeing chipboard in a few of the windows is a tad disappointing.

On entry there are easy “walk this way” signs which make it fairly straightforward to wander.

The entry video by the school children is pleasant enough, it raised my awareness that penryn had been built using money from slaves and sugar.

Whilst I agree with other reviews that it is a little dark to see everything , that doesn’t detract from the beauty of the rooms you are allowed to see.

Once you have strolled through what appears to be a very small part of Penryn you are met by the inevitable gift shop and cafe.

The walled gardens are amazing and the bog garden took my breath away.

On the whole, am I glad I went ?????

Yes, it was a peaceful and unhurried trip around somewhere beautiful.

Even though it could be argued that the whole place is really nothing more than some grand folly and simply showing off how much money you have.

I just wish more of it was open to see, something that no doubt will be explained away by using the “C” word ……….. COVID !!!

Whether anybody reads this bothers me not, if the 2 young American chaps we gave our tickets to managed to sneak in then I will be forever chuckling ……… almost as much as I’m sure the gardeners used to when sitting in there room based above the dung pit……….

A very interesting place, which has sadly failed to capitalise on its assets. We were very disappointed that the tour of the house was completely lacking in any useful information, preferring the thoughts of random 10 year olds rather than informed facts.
It would appear that the staff have used lockdown to remove any historical information and replace it with woke ideology. This becomes very obvious by the stark contrast with the excellent kitchen displays, which were very explanatory, and if the same attitude had been taken to above stairs, I think the message would have been just as clear. It would appear that the owner was an unpleasant person who exploited his workers at home and overseas and was only interested in show.
How much better to explain this through displaying the trappings of his wealth rather than ignoring this wonderful collection and showcasing subjective thoughts in blackened rooms.
This ridiculous kow-towing to passing trends illustrates how we are in danger of being unable to learn from history if its custodians choose to rewrite it rather than preserve it.
Shame on you, National Trust - I no longer trust you.

We visited during ‘ COVID times’ so we wanted to walk in the grounds but not venture indoors. So very disappointed to find that the entrance fee is all or nothing, so it was an extremely expensive wander! There are some nice outdoor picnic tables but yet again, food in the cafe was very expensive.
A plus was the very helpful nature of the volunteers.
We certainly wouldn’t return.
