Upton Castle holiday cottage nestles quietly in the little-known tranquil corner of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The castle itself was a Pembroke knight's holding and lies by the banks of the Carew River. Built in the 13th century by a Norman family, the Malefants, who held the castle until the 16th century. The building remains in its original state, with 19th century alterations, and lies within a considerable amount of land which includes a small chapel and fabulous formal gardens and woodland gardens with interesting landscapes features. The formal gardens are perhaps the most popular part of Upton Castle, and they consist of the formal Rose Garden, the Herbaceous Border, the Chapel Garden, the Private Gardens and the Walled Garden. There is a pretty bluebell woodland walk leading down to the river bank.
