The pleasantest place in Wales (apparently) - geograph.org.uk - 509631

The pleasantest place in Wales (apparently). Aside from the use of the word pleasantest (which I've surprisingly since discovered is in the dictionary) by the information board nearby - I could hardly argue - this seat has a lovely view of the castle and surrounding area - and who could also complain about its immediate surrounds... Most pleasant. I've since discovered that the quote used in the title is from Giraldus Cambrensis, a chronicler from the 12th-13th century who was born in the castle.
