I was here yesterday, take a picnic and a camera, it's stunning. Caergwrle is good too, as the castle sits within an Iron Age hillfort

Beeston Castle, just outside of Chester is worth a view. Also if you visit on the first Wednesday of the month they have a really good market & auction not far from the site.

I was thinking it was near Llangollen, so it may be Valley Crucis Abbey. Especially, given the name, i assume it is in a valley, and you can see it from the road below you, which is what i remember?

Google says you have to pay there now, i never remember having to pay in the past.
