Carew Castle and Tidal Mill’s rich history spans over 2,000 years and tells of knights of the realm, kingmakers, Elizabethan intrigue and Civil War devastation. Set in a stunning location overlooking a 23-acre Millpond, the Castle is one of the most architecturally diverse in Wales; from the west a Norman fortress, yet from the north a splendid Elizabethan mansion. The site also incorporates the only restored Tidal Mill in Wales, an 11th century Celtic cross, a Medieval bridge and picnic area all linked by a mile-long circular walk, suitable for buggies and wheelchairs, with magnificent views over the Millpond.

Just what the USA visitors like to see and learn about....the fascination for the historic past (which they of course don't have) is endless and they seem to absorb the facts and certainly appreciate the surround more than our "home grown" visitors....! Most especially the...More

The castle is very accessible and fun to visit. The staff look like they really get a kick out of acting like Robin Hood, a Knight or another character associated. There is a fun treasure hunt for kids and for the bank holiday there was...More

Thank you for your review. We were a little surprised by your review as Carew is very much a Castle and not a stately home. The current castle dates back to 1100 with archaeological evidence of an Iron Age settlement on the site 1,000 years...More

A lot of the Castle and grounds are outdoor but a significant amount of the Castle is undercover. The Tidal Mill is all indoor, there is a short 10 minute walk to get from the Castle to the Mill.
