Manorbier offers some of the best views along the Pembrokeshire coast. The small and friendly Welsh village could be described as an "ideal village" offering all that a visitor staying in a local holiday rental could desire at any time of the year in a most attractive and peaceful location. Visitors won't have to wander too far afield for sight-seeing and relaxation on their holiday. The village boasts a wonderful Norman Castle (complete withs a small souvenir shop where tickets can be bought to go round it), a lovely old Norman church and, of course an untterly fabulous, sheltered beach!
Manorbier has a popular Post Office /Londis Store which is open very early in the morning and until late (7.30 am to 9.00 pm). There's a wide range of stock from groceries, newspapers, wine to wet suits and beach stuff just what you need to keep your holiday cottage larder nicely sticked without having to drive for miles However, should visitors decide to take a break from self catering for a night or two, MAnorbier has a very friendly small hotel with good food and a restaurant fantastic view of the beach and coastline as well as a friendly village pub serving good pub food.
The Pembrokeshire Coastal Footpath runs up from the beach in both directions and the view from the beach looking west towards Ireland takes in a sweeping coastline to the northwest. The beach itself will appeal to surfers and bodyboarders.
The village is only 5 miles from Tenby which has one of the most photographed harbours in the UK and is a busy seasid resortn with some beautiful Georgian and Victorian houses. Access can be difficult in the summer (restriction on cars) but during the winter it is emptier and rather beautiful.
If you’re looking to explore further afield, but don’t want to take the car, then Manorbier has a station on the West Wales line. Take a day trip to Pembroke Dock, Tenby, Saundersfoot and Carmarthen (change there for London Paddington).
Finally, if the name Manorbier sounds familiar, it’s the name of a track on the album ‘Rewind the Film’ by Welsh rock band Manic Street Preachers, but for now, think of it as a wonderful place in which to spend a memorable holiday in Wales.
