Fodor's Review

An extremely rare surviving example of a fortified medieval manor house, Tretower Court was built in the early 1300s and expanded in the 15th century. The atmospheric interior contains a large hall, which was probably used for public business, and a solar, a private space used for working and relaxing. 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.
