Visited the castle on a short break to the area, interesting for the kids and adults alike, our kids enjoyed being able to go up the tower and after us adults enjoyed a drink from the on site tea room, all in all worth a trip especially as you can go and sit on the beach after

Visited Manorbier Castle today and had just the most amazing day. It's a pleasure to be able to roam around the castle, including the towers with their amazing views, with very few restrictions in place. Thankfully they have tea rooms which catered for our needs brilliantly, unlike a previous commentator we found it to be well priced, especially given the... More

This castle was more intact than I thought and we enjoyed our visit. Also this was located near to the beach which we walked on later. Just wonderful, but then we were extremely lucky with the weather

The location of the castle is spectacular and very atmospheric. There is very little information about the castle as you go around and therefore you need to purchase a guide book which makes the visit more expensive. We visited at the vey beginning of the tourist season and we were the only visitors. The staff were generally friendly but felt... More

I actually stayed in the self catering accommodation inside the castle itself. It is quite a thrill to hold the key to a castle in your pocket when you go out for dinner! The accommodation was beautifully decorated, clean and warm with all the mod cons that you would need. The castle itself is spectacular, so close to the beach... More

Although a small castle it was very interesting with displays and wall and turret access in places. It had a lovely castle green where you can sit and have a cup of tea.

Pretty little castle and the tea shop looked nice, but the weather deteriorated so we were limited as to what we could do there and did not stay too long. We walked there via coastal path which was challenging but stunning.

Manorbier Castle in a great setting overlooking the beach. The car park is pay and display and a little way from the main entrance, steep climb from the Car park on a narrow road. The admission is a little expensive, parts of the castle have restricted access, explore other parts but be careful as surfaces are very uneven and could... More
