Carew Castle

Carew Castle is a fascinating ruined building beside the Carew (pronounced 'Care-roo') river, a branch of the River Cleddau.

Carew Castle has been a fortified site since the Iron Age, but what exists now dates back to the 13th century with additions in the Tudor period.

As well as touring the castle and its grounds, you can picnic beside the river (free!) and there are local pubs.

Carew features a special entertainment each summer and this is well worth a visit.

A tidal mill can be seen a few hundred yards away.

picnic area. A good tarmac path leads from here via the tidal mill to
the castle. There are plenty of seats along the path where you can rest
and enjoy spectacular views of the castle

The castle is at the south end of the A4075 which runs from the A40 (between Narbeth and Haverfordwest) and the A477 (between Kilgetty and Pembroke). It is well signposted.
