Here are five more castles in Wales that can be considered dream locations for writing retreats. We’re looking at castles in Caerphilly and Cardiff. The plus side is that not all of these castles are ruins, so there’s more to explore. 1. Caerphilly Castle Caerphilly was constructed in the 13th century as a part of...

The humble little country of Wales, located at the south-eastern part of Great Britain, boasts an interesting distinction: it’s sometimes called the castle capital of the world, and for good reason. Wales has had about four-hundred castles over the course of history, with about a hundred or so of them still left standing. And castles,...

There are things I like about this castle, and maybe I just can’t get a sense of it from the images. I’d love to see what the inside looks like. To me this looks like a stage or reproduction rather than an actual castle – very unlike the rundown property I really like, which is...

Here’s another possibility, but it’s not high on my list of favorites. What I like about Butron castle is its size: it’s massive. I like all the towers. I like that it looks like a ‘real’ castle. And at 3.5 million EU it’s half the cost of my other favorite. What I don’t like about...

We’ve been looking at beautiful places in Europe, but we haven’t yet taken a look at the nice places on the other side of the world. There’s a lot of pretty places to go to in Asia, and Japan is filled with them – picturesque and captivating all the same. Here, we’ll look at some...

I’m determined to buy a castle, because of what it represents: a community of creative people working together to complete a massive goal with physical reality. I want a huge, immense structure, so when you stand by it you are dwarfed and overwhelmed by the enormity of our conquest. However, in terms of actually finding...
