Upton Castle is picturesque and charming Norman Castle which remains a private family home. The garden consists of 35 acres of listed historic gardens, surrounded by ancient woodland. There are spectacular herbaceous borders, a delightful formal rose garden and a fascinating, traditional 19th century walled garden. Rare trees and shrubs abound throughout the gardens and include a stunning collection of rhododendrons, tree Magnolias and Camellias. The medieval chapel contains ornately carved stone tombs of crusader knights. Enjoy woodland walks bursting with wild flowers leading to the shores of Upton Creek, part of the tidal Cleddau estuary. There are plenty of places along the paths to sit and soak up the tranquillity of the unique surroundings and enjoy a picnic. If you are lucky, you may even see an otter!

£5 each entrance to walk round a woodland managed to make it last an hour by walking very slowly. There are so many nice wooded areas in Pembrokeshire that you can walk round for free, save your money and give this a miss. The fact there were 2 cars in the car park when we arrived and none when we... More

Visited these gardens for the second time. Wonderful flowering shrubs and bluebells. How I wish I was a chld again. This is a really child (and dog) friendly garden. There are boardwalks through shrubs, play houses and lot of other play equipment. Secret doors pinned to trees in the woodland area - part of a trail I think. As soon... More

This is a great little woodland walk for a sunny day, takes less than an hour to get round but is definitely worth a visit.

This is an extensive, quiet, landscaped woodland garden. It does have some nice flower beds, a walled garden and a rose garden, but the real joy is to follow the paths through the different habitats, along and over streams and through the trees. You may be lucky enough to meet and chat with the charming gentleman owner working on the... More

A pleasant experience which is reached by turning off the A477 from Pembroke to St. Clears at Milton. Follow the road until the Castle Gardens sign on the right is reached. Follow the lane to the car park. The Castle, which has only been sold 3 times in 750 years, has been inhabited since 1150. In the grounds is a... More

I'm sure this place must be really good, but I'm giving it a black mark as we couldn't get in! The info said it was open in October, and the sign on the gate said it was open in October. We arrived at the gate at midday on Monday 17th October, after travelling several miles, and it was locked, with... More

The Gardens are officially closed at the end of September, due to unreliable weather conditions in October. All our recent advertisments state this fact. More

When we visited (Sept 2016) we didn't see another person throughout. From the car park, having paid our fee into the honesty box, we took the "walk on the wildside" down through the woods to the headland. The woods showed some signs of management - felling, maintained paths etc but otherwise it felt like no-one had been there except us... More

Just an absolutely beautiful venue. Went to my brothers wedding and had a wonderful time. The marquee was beautiful, the owners couldn't do more for you and the food was delicious. Would love to visit again. My only bug bare would be it is a very narrow one lane road to get into the castle but still well worth it
