The illustrious Careway family built Carew Castle & Tidal Mill in its strategic location along a lowland river estuary. Take advantage of the unique location and the views from the parapets. Built on a site with over 2,000 years of occupation, researchers have even found Iron Age settlements on the same hill. With over a millennium of history, the castle has experienced many periods of growth and decline. The modern site is now heavily restored, so use the audio guide to bring it to life. Visit the tidal mill, a type of mill which turns with the rise and fall of the estuary waters--one of only four left in Britain. The mill is a fifteen-minute walk from the castle.

Really enjoyed our visit. The castle is incredible with all its nooks and crannies. Its brilliant to see signs of how it once was and its history. The tidal Mill was amazing it showed and explained the entire process of milling the cereals and you can see all the mechanisms. All of this set in such a beautiful place, would highly recommend!
What a lovely castle! Great for the kids to explore and not too expensive. We went during the Easter period and there was a small vintage fair and a dragon egg hunt too. The tearooms are just outside the castle, so you don't need to purchase an admission ticket just to go there. Plus, I highly recommend the cakes! We will definitely be visiting the tearooms and castle again!
