Lovely day out here.
Loads to do, there’s the castle to have a look around, loads of gardens to explore, little play parks for children. Great cafe at Maria’s for really tasty food. Or loads of open space for a picnic
Loads of animals to see. All have plenty of room and seem really well cared for. A lot more than owls. Reptiles, invertebrates, other birds, mammals etc.
They’ve now even got Serval’s, which are amazing to watch!
We really enjoyed watching the bird displays and attending the up close sessions.
Really excited to see the place expand even more!

Interesting tour of the house. Rained heavily so not much to do but luckily we had booked the Escape Room. The Owl Garden was great even in the rain. Saw the otter and other animals apart from the owls. Sad the weather was against us and ran out of time for the gardens. Maria's Spanish cafe is ok but nothing special despite rave reviews. Limited indoor seating so book a table as soon as you arrive or better still ring a day or two in advance.

We had a lovely day at Picton Castle during a recent stay in the area. We very much enjoyed one of the bird displays and found the tour of the castle very interesting and wanted to thank one of your volunteers who took care of my elderly mum when she couldn’t manage the stairs to the upper floor - I’m just sorry that I didn’t find out her name and thank her personally.

Great time spent in Picton Castle - loads to do , we really only scratched the surface. Lovely gardens and areas to walk, lots of places to sit and relax.
Very good snack bar near the stables area, good value . Is part of the gardeners world two for one offer, but even without that its very reasonably priced as are most things in Pembrokeshire. Would definitely recommend is you are in the areas.

We spent the morning here on a recent trip to Wales. We were able to use our Gardeners World two for one offer. No need to prebook. Free parking which is nice. The castle itself was closed but we enjoyed visiting the gardens, seeing the castle from the outside and visiting the bird park.

The gardens were beautiful. We did think that the signage in the gardens could be improved. The demonstration in the bird park was really good. The guy hosting was very interesting and we enjoyed his humour.

Good gift shop with reasonably priced plants.

Highly recommended, worth going out of your way for.

Lots to see & do -A full day out!
The owls were our favorite experience, but there is something for everyone at Picton.
Great gardens and flowers, and an interesting tour of the house.
Would definitely recommend when visiting Pembrokeshire.

We visited Picton Castle as a couple in our 60's and were very impressed, but felt it had lots to offer for children as well. The gardens were beautiful, and the bird flying displays were super, with very humorous and informative commentary. We also did the very interesting house tour, and explored the Owl zoo. We felt it was very good value for money.

We enjoyed our first trip to Picton Castle so much, we returned for a second day. Between the various flyings of the owls and other birds and the otter talk plus delicious food to eat at Maria's you need the extra day in order to properly see the rest of the grounds! The young man flying the owls and birds of prey is very knowledgeable indeed and we both learned so much.

We looked at their website and reviews and thought that it wouldn't need more than half a day. We were wrong. You really do need to give this place a full day. We spent a full day and didn't even get to tour the house. The bird flight displays are amazing. The birds literally brush your ears as they fly between people. The presenter was one of the best comperes that I have ever experienced. Now the gardens..... these are splendid. With a description of woodland gardens I was not expecting much but they are beautiful. The best time is spring as there are multitudes of rhododendrons and azaleas. The walled garden is delightful and some other areas are as well. We had brought sandwiches so didn't eat in the restaurant however the food looked exceptional and very reasonably priced. £12 seemed expensive initially, but it is worth it. So much so that we plan to return next year. Highly recommended.
