It's a great way for the whole family to enjoy the woodlands as masses of Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Magnolias come into flower. While the kids rush around in search of clues, the ‘grown-ups' can enjoy the magnificent colours and scents. After the walk, what better reward than a nice warming cup of hot chocolate with cream and a homemade cake in the Courtyard Restaurant, or perhaps make it a lunchtime visit and enjoy the Spanish dish of the day with a glass of wine or beer! Normal Entry Fees apply with a £1.00 charge for the Easter Egg Trail Telephone: 01437 751326 Email: info@pictoncastle.co.uk

Laugharne
Overlooking the Taf estuary, Laugharne Castle was built a traditional medieval castle in the 13th Century before it was later used as a Tudor mansion. The castle is home to extensive grounds with both Georgian and Victorian gardens, which were largely used by Richard Hughes and Dylan Thomas when they needed peace for their writing.

Celebrating the life famous Welsh poet Dylan Thomas lived whilst in Laugharne, the Dylan Thomas Boathouse is most definitely an attraction not to be missed. Dylan wrote some of his most famous pieces in his Writing Shed above the Boat House, including "Under Milk Wood". Since Dylan's death, the Boathouse has welcomed visitors setting up a Tea Rooms offering local produce on its menu, along with a Gift Shop and an exhibition which includes a 24 minute film.

Dogs are allowed in the garden and on the terrace provided they are kept on leads, but only guide dogs are allowed inside. There are no parking facilities.

Carmarthen
Llansteffan Castle stands high in an impressive location overlooking the Tywi river. What once was a significant 12th Century ringwork castle in charge of controlling an important river crossing, all that is left to see now is a set of stone castle ruins situated at the top of a hill which was once home to a 6th Century BC Iron Age Hill Fort. Accessible only by a public footpath and lane which may be steep and uneven in places. Stroll around the interior walls and the upper levels of the main gatehouse. There is no public access to the Iron Age earthworks.
Carmarthen
Kidwelly Castle is a Norman castle overlooking the River Gwendraeth and the town of Kidwelly, Carmarthenshire The present remains of the castle include work from about 1200 to about 1476. Created as a defence against the Welsh. The castle is relatively well-preserved, and is managed by Cadw.
Carmarthen
The castle at Carmarthen is overlooking the River Twyi, , the Roman fort must have dominated the Roman town. The castle was converted into a prison in the 18th and 19th centuries, and the building of the Council offices has also not helped its appreciation as a military entity. However, enough remains to make a visit worthwhile. Free Town and Castle tours which take place from Castle House during the summer months and on most Wednesdays, depending on weather conditions.
Stepaside Ironworks originally opened in 1849, obtaining ore from the Amroth area and was transported by Saundersfoot railway. The Ironworks are now very much a ruins nowadays with the Engine Blasting House and the Casting House being more well-preserved.

Tenby
Tenby Castle was originally built by the Normans in the 12th Century, of which only a small tower remains on the top of Castle Hill. The town walls however, which it is believed were built later on in the 13th Century, are impressively well preserved, with the east walls running complete to the Esplanade.
Narberth
First recorded as a Norman Castle in 1116, Narberth Castle bears the legend that it was once a palace described in the mythical tales of Mabinogion. Unfortunately, very little of the stone structure remains but you can see that it was once rectangular in shape with circular towers. By the end of the 20th Century, Narberth Castle was derelict and so in 2006, renovations took place and it was opened to the public.
