Medieval walled Manorbier Castle, some 900 years old, is one of very few private castles available for letting. It stands at the mouth of a wild valley by the sea. Across the way is the isolated old church, and beyond the outer bailey is the village. This has a shop and a pub with an open fire and good beer. This magnificent section of coast has cliff walks and a sandy beach a hundred yards below the castle. The seaside town of Tenby is a few miles east, and Pembroke a few miles west. 

Once through the outer bailey, you pick up the keys to the great gate of the inner bailey and to the house built against the walls. The entrance is up steps to a large sitting room, looking over the bailey. This room has good quality furniture, high ceilings, and long window seats. TV and video. A flying walkway leads to a room with king sized double bed in the medieval gatehouse. At the other end of the sitting room are two pretty, newly redecorated bedrooms and two new bathrooms, one ensuite. One has twin beds, the other a double. Stairs go up to an attic twin bedded room or down to the dining room, with a fine table (seats 12).

Since there are walls and towers, children should be supervised outside the house. Private catering possible. The house and garden make a fascinating and private retreat within the great castle, hidden from seasonal castle visitors.
