, Tretower, Powys, Wales,
Tretower Court and Castle is situated in the town of Tretower to the north west of Crickhowell and to the south of Cwmdu. For over 900 years Tretower Court and Castle has 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 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.
When the Vaughans left in the 18th century Tretower Court became a working farm and where ladies and gentlemen lived, lambs and geese moved in!
