We loved our wander around the ramparts and halls of Carew castle. Our two girls (7&9) loved the detective trail, hunting down eight locations including a gargoyle and the beautiful stained glass window in the chapel. You can also climb to the top of the castle for lovely views of Pembrokeshire. I nearly left the wife locked in the stocks... More

Visited the castle one afternoon after lunch in the pub opposite. Ponies grazing around the castle are very cute. The leaflet about the castle has some great bits of information so it's worth looking at, the castle has some great history. We were also allowed to take the dog in! Entertaining for adults, no doubt for kids too. The setting... More

My favourite castle of the holiday, this is definitely a must-see gem! I really enjoyed wandering around, and it was made all the better by the fantastic information leaflet we were give upon entry. The leaflet really brought the place to life and made it fascinating to explore. Some really interesting Tudor history for anyone interested in that era!

We enjoyed walking around the castle with our dog. Would have been nice if there was more signage and possibly a head set with the story of the castle. Really nice walk down to the mill and around the lake.

Thank you for your review, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit to the Castle and the walk around the Millpond. We are sorry to hear you would have liked more signage. We try to keep information panels to a minimum within the Castle, to keep the Castle looking as untouched as possible. We hope that visitors instead... More

We stopped only to admire the castle across the water but it looked intriguing and I'd return to see more when I'm back in the area.
