Manorbier is a beautiful Norman castle with turrets, landscaped gardens and its own chapel, providing a wonderful glimpse into a past steeped in history and folklore. And rather than just visiting for the day, you can stay in the beautiful Castle House, an elegant Victorian home situated within the walls of the castle.
You arrive via a long driveway, which gives you an excellent first view of the castle and takes you to your private parking area. Enter via the stunning gatehouse and you'll find your holiday home incorporated seamlessly into the fabric of the castle.
You'll enter to find a spacious and airy living room with exposed beams and high ceilings. There's comfortable furniture in-keeping with the home's period and a lovely log burner nestled within an ancient fireplace. This space is perfect for long evenings drinking fine wines, playing board games or just curling up with a great book wrapped in one of the handwoven throws provided from Tregwynt woollen mill.
There's a lovely dining room called the Giraldus with a long table that comfortably sits 12 which leads into a spacious kitchen where you can whip up a feast. It comes fully equipped with all the mod cons you could need including a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, large aga style oven and a breakfast table. French doors lead out to the private courtyard. There's also a utility space with several highchairs stored here in case you need them. Crack open a bottle of something fizzy and explore the rest of the house.
If you go back through the lounge and head up the wooden steps you'll find the oldest part of the castle which dates back to the 12th century and is home to the 'Bridal Suite'. There's a king size bed and an ensuite just for you. The hosts have even put a Dolce Gusto coffee machine in there, in case you want to start the day very slowly.
The second bedroom is a lovely double with Victorian furnishings and another ensuite. This room has a great view of the private courtyard. Further down the corridor is a cosy twin, ideal for kids or friends, which overlooks the gardens and castle turrets. There are some steps up from here to a Princess Nest room which would make every child feel like a Disney character. Downstairs you'll find another pretty twin bedroom and a large family bathroom with a shower over the bath.
Across the courtyard there's a charming garden terrace lodge which will sleep another four guests, bringing the total to 12. The rooms all have great views of the castle gardens and the castle is locked up at night, making the entire mystical place yours alone!
The private walled garden has a patio area with table and chairs and a large gate where you can enter into the Castle Gardens. The house is large and winding and will provide a haven from the modern world. It's also a wonderful place for kids to explore with many nooks and crannies.
In the morning take your coffee to the sunny courtyard garden and enjoy the surroundings and the smell of wonderful flowers as you make your plans for the day.
Pembrokeshire is famous for its beautiful golden beaches, over 50 of them, and the place is steeped in Celtic myths and legends. Explore the quaint harbours and hidden gems, so much of it is right on your doorstep. Take a turn of the castle and gardens and then pop into the cafe for a slice of cake. With the wonderful castle grounds and the beautiful beach you won't get bored in this very pretty village, and if you fancy dining out you might like to try The Swan Inn, less than a mile away. If you venture further afield you can enjoy a good supper at The Longhouse around three miles away. Be sure to tell them you're staying in the castle don'tyouknow!
