Stradey Castle is a popular film location situated close to Swansea and about an hour’s drive from Cardiff. The Gothic Revival House, set in a secluded location on the outskirts of Llanelli, is still privately owned and occupied by the family who built it in the 1850’s.
The house, which includes a tower and extensive basement, offers a wide variety of both grand and ‘edgy’ spaces. It is surrounded by a formal garden terrace looking across 70 acres of parkland to the sea and a large woodland garden with both a river and small lake. There are also a number of farm and estate buildings (early 19th century), one of which still contains its original water wheel.
In recent years the following films have been shot here:
