A three-bed property that overlooks a 12th-century castle that featured in Monty Python and the Holy Grail has gone on the market for £260,000.

The semi-detached house in Carmarthenshire offers stunning views of Kidwelly Castle, which was the setting for the opening scene of the 1975 British comedy film.

The film begins with Arthur, played by Graham Chapman, along with his faithful servant Patsy, played by Terry Gilliam, arriving at the castle to ask the knights to join them in Camelot.

Arthur then engages in a hilarious and bizarre conversation with a man at the top of the castle after arriving knocking coconuts together and pretending to ride a horse.

As well as featuring in the film, Kidwelly Castle is also awash in non-fictional history.

In 1231 Llywelyn the Great and his Welsh army captured and razed the castle.

In the early 1400s, Welsh independence leader Owain Glyndŵr and his soldiers from France and Brittany captured the town of Kidwelly and unsuccessfully attempted to take the castle.

The countryside surrounding the castle and property is said to be haunted by the headless ghost of Gwenllian ferch Gruffydd.

Gruffydd was beheaded in 1136 and was the wife of Welsh Prince Gruffydd ap Rhys.

The property for sale has many character features and is set over three floors.

There are two double bedrooms and one single spread over two floors.

A beautiful brick fireplace is shown in the kitchen while the living room offers stunning views of the castle walls and turrets over a small river.

West Wales Properties, which is handling the sale of the property, put the property on the market last week, May 12, for offers in excess of £260,000.
