About the garden

A 13th century castle set in the famous Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and surrounded by 40 acres of beautiful RHS partner gardens, Picton has the added attraction of the Welsh Owl Garden and Zoo, providing plenty for visitors of all ages to do. Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the recently renovated walled garden, with beautiful planting schemes, or the delights of our courtyard gift shop and restaurant.

Children will love the adventure playground and jungle boardwalk, and there’s also a fairy door trail for them to explore in the summer months. For those more adventurous guests, the on site escape rooms provide something a little extra out of the weather.

An excellent afternoon spent walking around the grounds and gardens. We watched the bird of prey display and had a guided tour of the castle. The guide was very informative, spoke with authority and humour. The tour lasts one hour. There are interests for children but we had none with us on this visit so didn't take a lot of notice. Would recommend.

Spent half a day here with our 2 teenage girls (14 and 16). We all really liked it here. There's nice walks, a couple of treats shops, some interesting historical sights, a number of birds/small mammals and a lovely garden. They also have various creature talks throughout the day, hosted by interesting staff speakers. We took a picnic. All the staff were friendly and happy. The place was tidy and well kept. Our only disappointment was we didn't know we had to book a separate tour of the house. We thought we could just look around it on our own. We will definitely come back.

Had a great few hours at Picton Castle despite a high of 11 degrees mid June! I'm only deducting 1 star because entry fee did not include a guided tour of the castle, this was a further £6 each which wasn't made clear until we had paid the £12 admission. We decided to not do the tour as felt a little cheated. The high was definitely the walled garden which was beautiful even though a further 4 weeks would see it full of much more colour as blooms were waiting to burst. So so many varieties of flowers and shrubs that I was totally unfamiliar with. Great textures, combinations and a small section dedicated to vegetables. A beautiful lilly pond and water feature centrally placed making the whole space absolutely stunning, definitely one of my favourite gardens I have visited. We had a flying display of owls and then later on of birds of prey and the information provided was quite fun and engaging. There are some other small animal enclosures which children will love. Plenty of space to eat, kids to run about and explore. We had a tasty lunch. Had seen a review about it being overpriced but I can honestly say I thought it was very appropriate for the portion size which was very generous and carrot cake was yummy. Not used to writing such a lengthy review but as a couple on a cold wet day, it really was so enjoyable. Hats off to the head gardener there.
