Oxwich Castle

Oxwich Castle

Oxwich Castle is a Grade I listed castle, although it’s not a proper castle, but more a grand Tudor house, built in a courtyard style

.It was built by the Mansel family in a lovely spot on a wooded headland above Oxwich Bay in the Gower. They did live in before moving to their other property Margam Abbey. Oxwich Castle was leased out as a residence and gradually saw the east side fall into disrepair. It was in 1949 that Oxwich Castle was rescued from demolition by Lady Apsley and put under state care. Nowadays it is maintained by Cadw

There are many Family Friendly Events held here throughout the year and it has Toilets, Baby Changing Facilities, Parking and Picnic areas.
