About Manorbier

Manorbier was called the pleasantest spot in Wales,' by the famous 12th century chronicler, Gerard Cambrensis, better known as Gerald of Wales, who has work in print to this day. He was, however, a little biased as he was born in the magnificent Manorbier Castle, the son of the de Barri family, who owned the Castle and were to live in it for many years. In 1997 the rest of Wales caught up with Gerald of Wales and Manorbier was designated as a conservation area within the Pembrokeshire National Park.

Travelling to Manorbier is a pleasure in itself, winding through deep country lanes full of dog roses and honeysuckle, towards the coast.

The Castle is in a superb state of preservation being one of the few in Wales that has never been attacked. The de Barri family developed it more as a fortified Baronial home rather than a fortress. Walking round the Castle and the village give an all encompassing view of feudal life in the Middle Ages and the subjugation of the population.

It is now privately owned by Lady Dunsaney and is open to the public. Pembrokeshire Coastal Path crosses the Castle's grounds and takes you past a well preserved Neolithic burial chamber.

The Castle stands on a hill overlooking the sea and the glorious sands of Manorbier Bay, popular with families for paddling and beach combing for fossils and starfish, and it is one of the best beaches on the Pembrokeshire coast for surfing. When the bigger less sheltered beaches are blown out surfers flock to Manorbier to ride the powerful waves.

The lovely church of St James,was established at the same time at the Castle, in Norman times. Also to be found on the Coastal Path is the King's quoit, a striking stone cromlech dating from 3,000BC, which is incidentally, a good place to stop for a picnic.

In the village of Manorbier there's a youth hostel, the Castle Inn, which also serves meals, a cafe and a garage. For shops and night life Tenby and Pembroke are only a few miles away.

Gerald of Wales, who became the Archdeacon of Brecon, was not the only writer to be inspired by Manorbier. George Bernard Shaw spent two months there and Virginia Woolf was a regular summer visitor.
