We spent the whole day at Manorbier. Lazed on the beach as it was a sweltering day and then had a walk over the cliff top. Lots of rock pools to investigate and the sea was child friendly. Loved it.

We had a lovely couple of hours playing here in the sunshine with our young family. Good value, nice coffee, relaxed atmosphere and very charming.

Very well presented and beautifully maintained, lots of information (comparable to a National Trust property). Takes about an hour to do thoroughly. Worth having lunch: their cafe is simple but the food is surprisingly good.

The atmosphere and surroundings cannot be surpassed. There is a little cafe which has a limited menu, service is slow and I have to say that the food is basic and pricey for what you actually receive. Visit the castle it's amazing,eat in th village at the Beach Cafe

The Castle itself is not huge, however it is one of the most intact Castles I have been to and it is looked after with great care. We went on a really warm day and spent quite a bit of time just relaxing on the lawn within the Castle walls surrounded by the beautiful flowers. It is also worth buying... More

Exploring this castle gives you a really good idea of how life was lived within it and the status of the owners within the area. Lots of stairs and dark dungeons for kids to explore; pretty flower surrounded inner court where you can have light lunches and tea. Well worth visiting.

When in the area I would recomend a visit here, I would plan 2-3 hours for a wonder about this castle but it is mostly open to the elements so pick a dry day. The car park was £5 for the day and is halfway between the castle and the beach.

This was my first visit to Manorbier Castle since childhood, and I found it to be just as magical as I did all those years ago. The castle's location is simply beautiful - right by the sea and overlooking gorgeous Manorbier beach - and we liked the fact that it wasn't too big and felt quite intimate compared with the... More
