Village

Details

Manorbier is well known as a tourist spot and as a surfing site. Attractions in the village include Manorbier Castle, and a popular beach in the cove about half a mile to the south west of the village. Manorbier lies in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

The Norman knight Odo de Barri was granted lands in the last decade of the C11th, and he erected a wooden hall on the site of the castle, surrounding it with earthworks. It was his son who began building the stone Manorbier Castle we see today. A great square tower was constructed, together with a fine hall block and, by the end of the C12th century, these buildings were enclosed by two high stone curtain walls with towers and a strong gatehouse.

Manorbier has a railway station on the Carmarthen and Whitland line to Tenby and Pembroke Dock.
