CAREW CASTLE

The motte and bailey erected in 1105 has now vanished, replaced by a tower in the early 13th century. The castle was rebuilt in the late 13th century as a cross between a fortified manor and a castle. The northern range was added in the 1580's. It was slighted in the Civil War when the south wall was demolished afer being captured for a second time by Parliamentary forces and it was then abandoned in 1680. Much of it remains in a beautiful setting by the Carew River millpond.

Open April - October.
