We stumbled on this by accident , and it was unforgettable , we were out for a drive in the country , went round a corner to be greated by a castle and a beautiful wild coastline. Further exploration was rewarded with a beautiful beach in a cove straight from a novel. We returned for a full day , the... More

We love Manorbier Castle, we visited in June 2014 and then again in September 2015 - it ticks all the blocks of a fairytale castle. The beach setting is gorgeous, and do yourself a favour and walk around the headland (to the left as you look over the sea) - the views are worth it. If you head a little... More

What a gem. Brilliant little castle, well worth a visit, and dog friendly! When we visited there was a jazz band playing, ( not sure it's appropriate and not everyone's cup of tea) but it was fine to listen while having a drink from the onsite cafe.

Beautiful old castle - well preserved. The grounds are beautiful. There is a café and the beach is worth a look too.

We visited in the October half term, and although busier than previous visits,it was still fairly quiet. Staff as usual, were friendly and helpful, including the guy doing restoration work; he took time to tell us all about the work that was being done. Meals in the coffee shop were very nice, although maybe a little bit expensive. It is... More

Very expensive for very little - admission for our party 1/3rd more than advertised!. We had already been to two other castles this week and this was overall very disappointing. Although the castle itself is ok, there needs to be a lot of work done to ensure the health and safety of visitors. I seem to remember only one set... More
