A traditional Victorian country house, Scolton Manor was home to successive generations of the Higgon family, until it was bought by Pembrokeshire County Council in 1972.
The house has been sympathetically restored in order to provide visitors with a taste of Victorian society and style, both above and below stairs.
The site also provides a home for the County Museum collection which includes fine art, photographs, costume and agricultural collections.
The 60 acres of park and woodland surrounding the Manor are used as a country park and are open all year round.

The Glorious War?

"I do hope and pray that our dear old country may be spared the frightful miseries by what people are sometimes inclined to call a Glorious War"
In 1914 the three Higgon brothers were preparing for war. By the end of July 1916, only one was left alive.

In Memoriam: Johnny

  • 4 July — 30 September 2016 *on now

The house will be displayed as it might have been after the death of Johnny Higgon, the eldest son and heir. The owner of Scolton Manor at the time, Edith Higgon, put the house ‘into mourning’ after the death of her eldest son, having already lost one son to the War. Visitors will notice a very different atmosphere to the usual friendly and homely feel.
