Scolton Manor Park: more than 60 acres of Pembrokeshire heritage and fun, run sustainably for the good of the local community and environment

Scolton has been managed and operated by Pembrokeshire County Council since 1972, when it was sold to the Welsh Church Fund by Colonel Jack Higgon. The property of the Higgon family for nearly four centuries, Scolton was sold only on the strict condition that it be run for the benefit and enjoyment of the public in perpetuity. 

50 years later we are celebrating our half-centenary as a hub of Pembrokeshire culture and conservation, and as a site that provides fun for the whole family while contributing meaningfully to the local environment and community. Tremendous work on the part of the Scolton team and our many valued volunteers and collaborators has gone into turning the manor and park into a destination that truly offers something for everyone.

The Scolton Family

The Scolton team comprises a small number of local authority staff and a range of partners, including community and volunteer groups. We work closely together to run, maintain and develop the site and ensure its continued vitality as one of Pembrokeshire’s top destinations for local residents and tourists alike.

It’s been a difficult two years for all of us. But as Pembrokeshire and the wider world emerge from the pandemic, it could not give us any more pleasure to extend a warm Scolton Manor Park welcome to you and your family!
