Fonmon is one of the few medieval castles which is still lived in as a home. It was built by the St. John family in the early 13th century and has changed hands twice.
Although most of the present castle dates from the post-medieval period, the rectangular keep was built c.1200 and is still the core of the castle. In later centuries the castle was enlarged by adding wings to the medieval keep accompanied by stunning Georgian interiors.
The castle has many splendid areas open to visitors including the gardens. Fonmon Estate sits on 350 acres and the current owners are committed to enhancing South Wales by providing an interactive, outdoor and fun environment.
Visitors to Fonmon Castle and Estate can experience a Dinosaur Experience, reconstructed Medieval Working Farm, Lost Victorian Gardens, an interactive Story Telling Adventure, Woodland Walks, Children’s Playgrounds, Themed Gardens and a host of On-Site costumed staff.
Visitors can interact in Welsh and English and all staff are keen to impart their wealth of local knowledge. Fonmon Castle welcomes research tours and educational groups at almost any time but these need to be arranged prior to the visit.
The Castle can host private parties and dinners, corporate away days or training sessions, company celebrations and due to the fact that it is a still a private home, guests are always assured of a warm and personal welcome with flexible solutions to serve any occasion.
