This castle was more intact than I thought and we enjoyed our visit. Also this was located near to the beach which we walked on later. Just wonderful, but then we were extremely lucky with the weather

The location of the castle is spectacular and very atmospheric. There is very little information about the castle as you go around and therefore you need to purchase a guide book which makes the visit more expensive. We visited at the vey beginning of the tourist season and we were the only visitors. The staff were generally friendly but felt... More

I actually stayed in the self catering accommodation inside the castle itself. It is quite a thrill to hold the key to a castle in your pocket when you go out for dinner! The accommodation was beautifully decorated, clean and warm with all the mod cons that you would need. The castle itself is spectacular, so close to the beach... More

Although a small castle it was very interesting with displays and wall and turret access in places. It had a lovely castle green where you can sit and have a cup of tea.

Pretty little castle and the tea shop looked nice, but the weather deteriorated so we were limited as to what we could do there and did not stay too long. We walked there via coastal path which was challenging but stunning.

Manorbier Castle in a great setting overlooking the beach. The car park is pay and display and a little way from the main entrance, steep climb from the Car park on a narrow road. The admission is a little expensive, parts of the castle have restricted access, explore other parts but be careful as surfaces are very uneven and could... More

I can probably agree with most of the previous reviews and so will summarise my take on the castle. Firstly what a wonderful sight with fantastic views of the coastline, as you would expect. History galore and you can have a great explore around places most other attractions would probably close down as unsafe. You would need to watch young... More

Back to visit after 25 years, and it was still as wonderful as I remembered. A must after your walk round the castle is a cuppa and the most delicious cakes.
