Slebech Park

Introduction

Slebech Park has a medieval house, replaced by a 'castle-wise' Georgian mansion in about 1776. The terraces are supposedly of late-17th century origin overlooking the Afon Cleddau to the south.The park contains drives (frequently adjusted), water features, bridges and woods. The stables and coachouse are attributed to Anthony Keck. The associated walled kitchen garden is now demolished. The east drive, two kilometres long through woods and fields, was constructed about 1825.
