Beautiful castle, really lovely and I recommend a visit. My partner and I had to take turns to look at certain parts due to our sons baby buggy but that's only to be expected really.

We just spent 5 days at this magical place. The inner cottage and rooms are beautiful. The castle gardens and the close proximity to some great countryside to explore offered a unique experience. The castle is stunning with wonderful views of Tenby Castle Beach. Highly recommended.

My husband was desperate to visit here with our young baby, having visited as a child himself. The castle car park is at the bottom of a relatively steep hill but you can access the entrance through a 'secret gate' which takes you up the side of the castle. We paid £5.00 each adult and our baby was free. The... More

Having not visited this lovely castle for about 10 years I was looking forward to visiting to see the displays inside the castle. The 'life sized wax figures' were a complete let down (looked like the same very poor ones as on my last visit) the rooms would be much better without them in. The tea room and garden are... More

Lovely quiet place, nice atmosphere. Friendly staff. Some stairs to climb, but worth the effort for the lovely views.

The location of this castle really is special .It is located almost on the beach and it is possible to walk around its high walls in places. It has a marvellous little café and very special welsh cakes.

Have visited the castle before but took the kids along before them dragging us down on to the beach just below - great historic building and good value for money on entry. Only problem on the day we went was a wedding was taking place so it was a quick visit in and out. However while on the beach later... More

There are lots of towers and rooms to explore once you get inside this smaller castle with a small tea room and shop. On the day we visited there was a falconry display in full swing and our son got to hold and eagle / red kite after after, which he loved! There is a large car park and a... More

A very interesting place to visit. Our two young grandchildren loved it as they could explore and run around safely. We loved it because it is fascinating to look around. The entrance fee is very reasonable, and the staff are all very helpful and friendly. My only criticism is th size of the cafe, although you can sit outside if... More
