Tretower Court and Castle

Join a tour with Tretower Court and Castle's very own custodian. Find out more about its fascinating history and architecture, and take a walk around to appreciate its beautiful setting and location.

For over 900 years Tretower Court and Castle has been altered, adjusted and adapted. Much of this was done to keep up with style, fashion and the tastes of the time.

The Picards and the Vaughans who lived here were rich influential Welsh families; the movers and shakers of their time. They needed a place to impress. And the sumptuous accommodation they created reflected their high status as Welsh gentry.

When the Vaughans left in the 18th century, Tretower Court became a working farm and, where ladies and gentlemen had lived, lambs and geese moved in!

Now, in the 21st Century, we've recreated a suite of rooms as they may have been in 1470 when the Vaughans were part of high society. Discover a sophisticated way of life: from intricately carved furniture right down to the pots and pans of a working kitchen. Experience 15th century living at its best.

Tours will be at 11.00am, 1.00pm and 3.00pm.
