Oxwich Castle

UK»Wales»Glamorgan»Oxwich Castle

Oxwich Castle: It is a grand Tudor manor house built in courtyard style. A product of the peaceful 16th century, Oxwich was built by Sir Rice Mansel to provide sumptuous accommodation. He gave it a mock military gateway complete with family coat of arms. Sir Rice's work was confined to the southern block and was completed between the 1520s and 30s. The six-storey south-east tower which still survives probably accommodated the family and servants. After the Mansels moved out in the 1630s the castle fell into disrepair and the south range was used as a farmhouse.
