Staying in Tenby, we took a quick drive here. Parking was very reasonably priced and it's only a short walk up the hill to the entrance. Entry price was £5.50 per adult. Compared to some of the other castles nearby (Pembroke and Carew), you probably don't get as much for you money here but it is still an attractive castle.... More

Small castle to look around and not very expensive, nice to have full access to the towers to over look the beach. Think the wedding decor spoils the look and should be put away when not in use as walking into a crypt and seeing party signs almost seems disrespectful Overall you can easy pass a couple of hours in...

We stopped by here after surfing at Freshwater West. It is wonderful and just the right size - doesn't take all day to visit. Very very nice and wonderful cafe and staff. Loved it!

Just 4 ponds for a senior, although car park is a bit steep. A tip is to just drive around next corner where their is free parking for about 12 cars. But the castle is very pretty with a lovely lawn and flower beds internally. A small team room with limited internal seating. Lovely views from top floors of search... More

Manorbier Castle may be the most beautiful place in Wales, so definitely don't miss it. Pick a sunny day -- you can explore the castle itself in an hour but you'll want to stay longer to soak up the atmosphere and the history. The ruins are fairly well-preserved but feel very natural and mostly untouched, and the setting is spectacular... More

A good well kept castle albeit a ruin really. A bit expensive to get in about £6. Very good coffee shop with friendly staff. Coffee and cake well priced. Worth a visit.

Attended a beautiful wedding here where the chapel was used for the wedding and the grounds for the photos and drinks. The reception was just great and held in the neighbouring hotel in a marquee and the setting and food were amazing. The castle is a short walk from the beach and is a lovely place to visit.

There was a wedding on the day we visited the place. The views were superb. Nice walk to reach the beach and if you have time stop by the church. Such a lovely village.

I've visited here a number of times in my 40 years. Always a pleasure. Well maintained, nooks and crannies to explore, towers to climb. Lovely views.

A lovely ruined but romantic castle with beautiful gardens. The coffee and cake from the cafe was excellent.
