Tretower Court and Castle“A dedicated follower of fashion”
For over 900 years Tretower Court and Castle have been altered, adjusted and adapted. Much of this was done to keep up with style, fashion and the
tastes of the time.
The Picards and the Vaughans who lived here were rich and influential Welsh families; the movers and shakers of their time. They needed a place to
impress. And the sumptuous accommodation they created reflected their high status as Welsh gentry.
The Vaughans let and subsequently sold the Court in the 18th Century to the Parry family; as a working farm, lambs and geese moved in where ladies and
gentlemen had lived!
In the 1990s a medieval garden was recreated against the south wall of the court; now, in the 21st Century we’ve created a suite of rooms as they may
have been in 1470 when the Vaughans were part of high society. Discover a sophisticated way of life: from intricately carved furniture right down to
the pots and pans of a working kitchen. Experience 15th Century living at its best.
