Built on the site of ancient foundations Castell Coch also known, as Red Castle is relatively modern building, built in the 1870s. The Middle Ages fascinated the Victorians. High Gothic was the in fashion when Catlell Coch was built. Built by William Burges for, John Patrick Crichton-Stuart, the 3rd marques of Bute, to create a rural retreat to complement the splendour of his main residence, Cardiff Castle. Burges didn’t hold back. Dazzling ceilings, some would say over-the-top furnishings and furniture. This castle set on a wooded hillside if painted pink would be straight out of Disney Land.
(Although I am gland it not pink!).
