About East Lodge at Picton Castle

East Lodge is absolutely charming. Built-in the 1800s, this former gatehouse is perfect for guests who love gardening as it is in the grounds of Picton Castle in Pembrokeshire. Guests have free access to the grounds during their stay - a perk which also includes a free tour of the castle. The one-bedroom cottage sleeps up to two people, with a double sofa bed in the sitting room if you need to accommodate one or two more guests.

Picton Castle started life in the 1200s when it was at the heart of Pembrokeshire's political power. It stayed in the Philipps family for 800 years until the 1980s when a trust was created to maintain and care not only for the castle but also for its magnificent gardens. East Lodge was built in the 1700s as part of a huge building project that transformed the castle from a medieval manor to an elegant Georgian stately home. The Victorians made their mark outdoors with an impressive collection of rare plants as well as a lovely walled garden. Wherever you look indoors or outside, there is always a charming object or a pretty vista to enjoy. In addition to the castle and gardens, Picton Castle has an excellent cafe and deli which sells freshly prepared meals guests can take away and heat up in the lodge, an adventure playground, the Welsh Owl Garden and the Mansion of Mystery Escape Rooms.

Haverfordwest is only a short, 10-minute drive from the cottage, with a wealth of places to eat, drink and shop that include a lively Friday market. While not as pretty as Picton Castle, Haverfordwest Castle has a long and fascinating past and now houses the town museum. Another place for a day out is Narbeth which also has an excellent Friday morning market as well as a variety of independent shops and an annual food festival. You can get to both Tenby and St David's in about half an hour, giving lots of choice of fun things to do. Local attractions include Oakwood Theme Park, Folly Farm, Blue Lagoon Water Park and Pembroke Castle.

East Lodge is one of two elegant cottages at Picton Castle. It can be booked on its own or together with West Lodge, which sleeps up to four people in two bedrooms, for those on holiday with friends or extended family. Please see the owner's website for details.
