last hundred years - these were originally in Pembroke's Museum of the Home (now, sadly, closed).
Visitors who cannot manage stairs will be pleased that Picton Castle is on one level, and the cellars can be accessed via a gentle slope. Toilets near the site entrance are suitable for disabled people.
The grounds are extensive and beautiful. The woodland gardens are arranged in several formal areas, including a walled garden, bluebell walk, maze and play area.
In the restaurant the range of home-cooked food was impressive. There were plenty of healthy hot or cold meals and sandwiches available at reasonable prices. Souvenirs are on sale in the shop opposite. Plants grown in Picton's gardens are also available to buy.
Although the daily entrance charge to Picton Castle will not break the bank, it is possible to buy a season ticket which makes multiple visits very good value.
HOW TO GET THERE
Picton Castle is on a small country road a couple of miles south of the main A40 between
Haverfordwest and Narbeth. Follow the brown tourist signs from the A40.
