PICTON CASTLE

Picton Castle was built in 1280 and has been owned by the Philipps family since 1491.  It is now run by a charitable trust.  Despite looking like a medieval castle, with towers and gatehouse, in the 18th century it was transformed into a stately home.  The interior includes elegant room with magnificent fireplaces and good artwork, including a controversial ‘Picton Renoir’.

The 40-acre gardens are said to include one of the best plant collections in Wales and feature many rare species, with woodland walks and trails, as well as a walled garden with pond and herb garden.  Other attractions include The Welsh Owl Garden, an adventure playground, the Lumsden Collection of Antique & Vintage Lawnmowers and the Mansion of Mystery Escape Rooms – two unique interactive adventure games for teams of two to six players.
