Upton Castle Gardens is one of Pembrokeshire’s hidden gems and a must-see for gardening enthusiasts or anyone wanting to experience real peace and tranquillity.
The 35 acres of listed historic gardens surrounds the early 13th century castle (not open to the public as it is a family home) and contain an amazing collection of rare trees and shrubs as well as a formal rose garden, herbaceous borders and an early 19th century traditional walled vegetable garden.
The medieval chapel, featured on Time Team, contains ancient effigies and predates the castle itself. The woodland walks will lead you through stunning ancient trees, past the remains of medieval fish ponds and finally to the tidal estuary of the River Cleddau.
Open daily from 1st April to 30th September.
Admission £6 adults. £1.50 children. Season tickets available.
