“I sit beside the fire and think, of all that I have seen, of meadow flowers and butterflies in summers that have been.” J. R. R. Tolkien.
The tiny hamlet of Carew, four miles east of Pembroke, is dominated by the 13th-century castle that stands majestically over a 23-acre millpond. Carew Castle has a rich and fascinating history that spans over 2000 years, and displays the development from Norman fortification to an Elizabethan country house. Complex and utterly beautiful, this stunning attraction takes you on a fabulous adventure into the past, bringing history to life for visitors of every age. There’s a great cafe too, where you can take a break and enjoy a delicious snack. The site also incorporates the only restored Tidal Mill in Wales, an eleventh century Celtic cross, a Medieval bridge and picnic area all linked by a mile-long circular walk, suitable for buggies and wheelchairs, with exquisite views over the Millpond.
