Castell Waunberllan comprises the remains of a well-preserved medieval moated homestead. It is located in permanent pasture on the flood plain of the Afon Bran. A clearly defined raised platform measuring 25m by 15m is surrounded on all four sides by a shallow ditch averaging 0.8m deep and varying from 2.5 - 4m wide. A low outer bank is apparent on the SW, NW and NE sides of the ditch measuring up to 6m wide.
