Due to concerns over the further spread of Coronavirus and the well-being of our visitors, we regret to report that all Cadw unstaffed monuments and car parks will be closed from 5pm Monday 23 March until further notice. We do look forward to inviting people to once again enjoy these outstanding monuments as soon as we are able.
Through the keyhole of a modest medieval home
Easily identifiable thanks to its tall external chimney, Carswell Medieval House is one of the only buildings of its type still standing in this part Wales. Probably built in the 15th century, the house was part of the estate belonging to the Earl of Pembroke and was inhabited by tenant farmers who earned a modest living from the land.
Simple and unadorned, the house gives us a glimpse into workaday, everyday medieval life away from the grand castles often associated with the period.
Please approach with care and caution for your safety and the safety of others as this is agricultural land/a working farm with livestock and/or machinery.
Proceed directly to the monument and do not make contact with the livestock.
