We visited on a windy but sunny day. Great views from the battlements and the walk to the tide mill is well worth it. Lovely filling lunch from the cafe and my husband would recommend the caramel cake!

Stopped off on our way to Pembroke and definitely worth a visit. Good value for both the castle and tidal mill in the one price. Displays give enough information and interest. Short walk between the 2 with good views across the lake to the castle....More

We visited Carew Castle on a dreary day. However this did not spoil our interesting visit and after a short walk around the castle we came to the Mill. Very interesting old building with the remains of the millwheel inside to view. Walking back around...More

Really impressive castle, with a good mixture of fun and intersting stuff to learn. Our children enjoyed following the Pirate trail and trying their hand at Archery. Really pleased that both of them (aged 4 and 6) could have a go at this, as it's...More

A lot of the Castle and grounds are outdoor but a significant amount of the Castle is undercover. The Tidal Mill is all indoor, there is a short 10 minute walk to get from the Castle to the Mill.
