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 .

We just spent 5 days at this magical place. The inner cottage and rooms are beautiful. The castle gardens and the close proximity to some great countryside to explore offered a unique experience. The castle is stunning with wonderful views of Tenby Castle Beach. Highly recommended.

My husband was desperate to visit here with our young baby, having visited as a child himself. The castle car park is at the bottom of a relatively steep hill but you can access the entrance through a 'secret gate' which takes you up the side of the castle. We paid £5.00 each adult and our baby was free. The... More

Having not visited this lovely castle for about 10 years I was looking forward to visiting to see the displays inside the castle. The 'life sized wax figures' were a complete let down (looked like the same very poor ones as on my last visit) the rooms would be much better without them in. The tea room and garden are... More
