Lamphey Court is a Greek revival mansion north of the village of Lamphey, Pembrokeshire, South Wales built in 1823 by Charles Delamotte Mathias from the profits of slavery on the tea plantations of Jamaica. It was designated in 1970 as an important Greek revival house of high architectural quality.[1][2][3] After restorations and extensions Lamphey Court was re-opened by the present owners in 1980.[2] It currently operates as a Best Western hotel.

The main facade is two storeys high and seven bays wide. A full height four column Ionic portico occupies the three centre bays which are recessed behind the columns.[2] The whole is rendered and whitened and the low hipped slate roofs are concealed behind a plain parapet.[3]
