Enjoyed the gardens today. Some lovely plants and places to explore. It was very quiet which was good for us but a few more visitors would have been better.

Superb owl garden - lots of owls, most of which are very chatty! Nice to see owls out free flying and the staff are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Very cheap to get in - just a shame you have to pay for entrance to the...More

Return visit to Picton today to see the newly opened Secret Owl Garden. The gardens as always were amazing and very child friendly, with plenty to keep them amused, whatever their age. The owls were truly spectacular and such an inspired addition, which I'm sure...More

This is a must for anyone holidaying in West Wales. The castle, grounds, galleries and owl santuary provide a very full days visit. The restaurant is pretty good, too!

Very poor interaction with visitors from start to finish of tour - the tour guide was more interested in getting our money from us than finding out we're we were from and establishing a rapport. The tour went downhill from there on. Very poor interpretation...More
