Fodor's Review

A rare surviving example of a fortified medieval manor house, Tretower Court dates mostly from the 15th century. Buildings such as these were huge status symbols in their day, as they combined the security of a castle with the luxury of a manor house. On the grounds are the ruins of an earlier Norman castle. Tretower Court, restored in the 1930s, is singposted from the idyllic village of Crickhowell, which is 5 miles northwest of Abergavenny.
