Stopped here on a bit of a whim as a break on way to Fishguard. At £7 entry, a little expensive, missed the castle tour (although it looks like a manor house really) for an additional £3. All well maintained, some interesting plants and a very pleasant walk. My young son loved exploring the large area grounds and the play... More

We visited the garden only as we had dogs with us and wouldn't have left them in the car. The garden wasn't busy and we had a very leisurely stroll around annoying the various azaleas and rhododendrons which are still in flower. We then sampled the lattes and cake on offer in the restaurant (lovely!),sat outside in the sunny courtyard.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Picton Castle today. The weather was glorious as were the gardens. Our journey went as planned due to the castle being well signposted. Park parking is free and well laid out. The Gentleman on the entrance was a credit to the Castle. He gave us a thorough introduction to the gardens. The entrance... More

Visited on Friday 21April not really knowing what to expect.....took the tour of castle as we arrived, very interesting and worth the £3, we then explored the massive gardens, beautiful and very colourful with lots of wild flowers and bluebells to be seen, the west gardens have an adventure area for children, but we didn't have the grandchildren with us...

The interior of this castle is interesting because of the long period over which it has been occupied and the guided tour (which takes about an hour) was excellent. Our guide, Norman, was informative and knew the answers to any questions we asked. Outside it looks like a castle but once inside the door it looks like a stately home... More

Beautiful gardens to explore and fab guided tour of the castle. Choice of food available, we opted for Maria's Spanish place for lunch and it was delicious, albeit slightly on the pricey side. Having said that, entrance to the castle and grounds was very reasonable to all in all a great afternoon out!

We visited as a small family on a peaceful Easter Monday and had a really wonderful 3-4 hours exploring the vast gardens and their attractions. The botanical variety is impressive as was the play area for children and the 'hidden' surprise of the jungle walkway not to mention the walled garden-could go on.The place really exuded the atmosphere of welcome...
