Carew Castle and lake, Pembrokeshire

SimonWest's picture

The photo taken here was after days of heavy rain when the lake was filling up from the adjacent tidal pond with running water under the footbridge. In this location on a clear day the sun will rise up to the side of the castle making a possible great shot. The picturesque millpond attracts redshank, curlew, common sandpiper, shelduck and swans. An admission charge is applicable if you wish to visit the castle. 

"​The magnificent Carew Castle has a history spanning 2,000 years. Set in a stunning location, overlooking a 23-acre millpond, the castle displays the development from a Norman fortification to an Elizabethan country house. The site incorporates an impressive 11th century Celtic cross, the only restored tidal mill in Wales, a medieval bridge and a picnic area, all linked by a delightful one-mile circular walk which enjoys uninterrupted views of the castle and an easy access path suitable for wheelchairs and buggies."

Prices (2013): Adult £4.75 Concession £3.50.
