Small castle in a picturesque setting in Manorbier. Very steep steps up the towers but well worth it for the wonderful views. Café on site with indoor and outdoor seating. Well worth a visit if you're in the area and a very different feel to say Pembroke Castle.

Not the largest of castles in West Wales. This privately owned piece of national history is not far from Manorbier beach. Fairly interesting to walk around but not much history provided in to the castles past.

Imagine our delight, we had booked and paid for accommodation from our home in Provence, for a 4-night stay in Manorbier castle. Then, 7 days into our trip around Wales we were telephoned by the manager, just the evening before we were to arrive, to inform us we could not in fact stay, no reason was given - Incredible!!! But,... More

As you know we have corresponded about this a number of times. Your booking was not confirmed or paid for until the day before you were due to arrive, it was not a prior booking. The booking was taken in error as it was for a small annexe of the castle not the whole house, and should not have been... More

We visited on a misty/foggy windswept morning and you could feel the atmosphere of the place. With the imposing castle overlooking the valley and beach it really does feel like stepping back in time. Enjoying medieval history this was somewhere we both really just enjoyed being there. Their is a pay and display car park (reasonably priced) and also clean... More

We had visited manorbier castle after buying a voucher on groupon as we had no idea it was there before. It isn't the biggest castle but is set in a beautiful location and if you climb the towers the views across towards the sea are lovely. There are some very steeps steps however to get up to really see the... More

We went to Manorbier to stay with friends. The village is pretty and there is a great Castle and 12th century church. The castle is not expensive to visit and does excellent tea and coffee. The church had an amazing large Easter Garden. There is a great beach behind the castle and some good walking.

We stumbled across the castle entrance using the "secret" entrance and apart from a few steps it was OK access as we had a buggy with us. This was a cute way of entering from the car park without going the whole way around. Entrance was £5.50 per adult but no charge for our baby. We wanted a small afternoon... More
