About Castell Coch (Cadw)

Castell tylwyth teg - tegan i’r cefnog a’r pwerus

Beth sy’n digwydd pan fydd noddwr o gyfoeth diderfyn yn cwrdd â phensaer â dychymyg di-ben-draw? Dyma eich ateb.

Cwyd Castell Coch o goedwigoedd ffawydd hynafol Fforest Fawr fel gweledigaeth o stori dylwyth teg. Ond eto i gyd, dim ond awgrymu’r ysblander y tu mewn y mae’r tyrau mawrion hyn gyda’u toeau conigol unigryw.

A thrydydd Ardalydd Bute wedi rhoi tragwyddol heol i’w ddychymyg, ni ymatalodd y pensaer William Burges o gwbl. Mae’r tu mewn tra addurnedig a dodrefn drudfawr Castell Coch yn ei wneud yn gampwaith disglair o’r oes Fictoraidd Uchel.

But it’s no exotic folly. Underneath the mock-medieval trappings you can still trace the impressive remains of a 13th-century castle, once used as a hunting lodge by the ruthless Marcher lord Gilbert de Clare.

Castell Coch has been a plaything of the rich and powerful for over 700 years. Having lavished huge sums on it neither Gilbert de Clare nor the Marquess of Bute spent much time here.

it remains a magnificent vision of an imaginary medieval world – regularly voted by the public as their favourite building in Wales.
