Having been here in the past, we decided to go to the castle for a walk, on our weekend visit to Tenby. Such a beautiful castle, the kids enjoyed it here too, we took some great photos, and will definitely be back in the future. Would recommend a visit to anyone.

We stayed just outside Manorbier for a long weekend catching up with family. Despite the weather we wrapped up warm and walked the dogs on the beach. The dark clouds only added to the atmosphere. Dramatic landscape with the castle standing proud. Would highly recommend a visit ....

Wales is not short of castles. This one is large and imposing overlooking a beautiful sandy beach. Large car park and toilets nearby.

There were only about 15 people on the castle grounds when we were there. There isn't a lot to see, as the structure is small (for a castle). We climbed the towers, and the views were great. Nice relaxing destination and a good break from Tenby.

my friend and I did a tour of a few castles in Pembrokeshire. I liked Manorbier the best. It seems so authentic, it isn't all done up and pristine but clambering up the spiral staircases and looking out over the crumbling ramparts was wonderful. Loved looking around the gardens and climbing up the stairs to explore the rooms. Really authentic... More

We booked this castle for my sister's 50th birthday over the weekend in December just before the holiday season. It was very good value for money for a group of 10 of us. We had the whole castle grounds to ourselves. It was so beautiful and exactly what we were looking for. We were well informed before we came and... More
