    About the Gardens

    The RHS partner garden consists of 35 acres of tranquil listed historic gardens, surrounded by ancient woodland. There are spectacular herbaceous borders, a delightful formal rose garden, and a fascinating, traditional 18th century walled garden. Upton Castle is a picturesque and charming Norman Castle that remains a private family home.

    White Rhododendrons

    Rare trees and shrubs abound throughout the gardens and include a stunning collection of Rhododendrons, tree Magnolias and Camellias. Upton Castle, still a cherished family residence, provides a magnificent backdrop to terraces adorned with vibrant herbaceous borders, a classic rose garden, a Georgian walled garden, and the more intimate surroundings of the chapel. The medieval chapel, featured on Time Team, contains ornately carved stone tombs of knights and a crusader.

    The Arboretum, planted mainly in the 1920's-1930's has now flourished into a wonderfully mature landscape. It sets the ideal stage for our eagerly awaited second annual sculpture trail.

    Guided woodland walks lead through the dappled light filtering down through the rare temperate rainforest ecosystem. Abundant with a wilder, less meticulously tended beauty, and nestled on the shores of Upton Creek, part of the tidal Cleddau estuary the woodland walks invite exploration.

    There are plenty of places along the paths to sit and soak up the tranquillity of the unique surroundings or enjoy hot drinks and some lunch from our cafe.

    Upton Castle Gardens is one of Pembrokeshire’s hidden gems and a must-see for gardening enthusiasts or anyone wanting to experience real peace and tranquillity.
