The castle built in 1626 by Sir Thomas Morgan of Machen is an unique example of a Jacobean Chivalric castle. There is no vehicular access on the drive at the back of the Castle grounds, unless you live along the drive or are delivering the post or collecting the recycling. Volunteers working in the woodlands for the Conservation Trust (the sister trust of Ruperra Castle Preservation Trust) can also park on the drive by the south entrance to the woodland.

However - if you are a good walker and enjoy fresh air and exercise, you can park in the Coed Ruperra woodland car park on the Draethen-Michaelston Road and walk through the woods to the castle drive. The drive is a public footpath and you can walk along there past the gate into the castle to a little kissing gate and down a path at the side of the castle grounds and round to the south side.

You might like to stop at The Hollybush Inn, in Draethen , for a meal or a drink and leave your car there while you walk up the footpath at the back of the Hollybush and into the woodlands and up and over the top down to the castle.
