Llawhaden Castle (Castell Llanhuadain) is a castle in the Pembrokeshire village of Llawhaden and 3 miles east of Wiston in south west Wales. Grid reference: OS map 158: SN 073175.[1] The site is owned and managed by Cadw.

It was built by the bishops of the Diocese of St David between the 12th century and 14th century. The first castle on the site was constructed in 1115 by Bishop Bernard. Only the moat and the earth bank from this period survive. The vast majority of the ruins seen today, date from the latter construction commissioned by Bishop Adam de Houghton between 1362 and 1389. This was much grander, with two suites of residences situated on the first floor. The impressive gate house shown in the picture was probably added at a later date.[2]
