This castle is very pretty from the outside. Make sure you check the opening times, as we arrived to late to actually walk the castle grounds. Not a whole day activity but a pretty site to behold.

Not a lot to see or do in Manorbier Castle and at £5 per head for an adult, just not worth the money

A visit to the castle is well worth the time. Interesting sound effects and plenty of places for the children to explore. When you're in Manorbier don't forget to walk up to the ancient cromlech on the hillside too.

we have visited Manorbier a few times but never the castle so we decided to have a look , the little tea room was good and the castle itself okay the only negative it is only for an hour Max so is it a bit expensive , if with youngsters maybe spend longer.

We didn't pay to get into the castle, we just went to the tearoom and sat outside within the walls of the castle. Appeared over priced initially but the portions are good. Friendly staff.

Manorbier is set in magical surroundings over looking the bay. The steps to the tower are a little step so be careful if you have young children or elderly relatives. Lovely place to sit and take in the castle and have a cup of tea.

Near both Carew castle and Pembroke castle Manorbier is hauntingly beautiful. Sitting in the courtyard and eating ice creams,surrounded by its towers and ancient walls,is quite a treat Then you can walk down to the beach .
