Information for walkers in the UK

YHA Manorbier

This cliff top hostel offers fabulous ocean views, coastal paths and sandy beaches that are popular with surfers and children. This is a great spot for a family seaside holiday, group break or weekend escape. As well as being a great location for activity breaks, other attractions nearby include Oakwood theme park, Heatherton Activity Park and Manorbier, Pembroke and Carew castles - all great for educational visits.

The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path runs straight by the hostel, making it an ideal retreat for walking and orienteering holidays. There are rock climbing and watersports facilities nearby too if you want to mix in some fun activities with your break. After a makeover in 2015, the hostel has a freshly refurbished reception and stylish foyer to relax in. Don't miss the incredible view from our brand new patio - our family-friendly campsite is second to none!

FREE WI-FI available in communal areas for guests!

The Hostel

This 70 bed Youth Hostel has private bunk rooms for couples, families or friends. Half of our rooms are en-suite, the others have shared washroom facilities. We also have a campsite and three camping pods. 2015 saw a an amazing refurbishment to our reception and foyer area, plus we've added stylish new furniture, modern metal beds and opened up a wonderful sea view. We've also upgraded our bathroom facilities. Outside we've added a patio and self-contained camping amenities for our camping and camping pod guests.


Please note that camping is sold per person and not per pitch and so, during the booking process, you will need to select the number of people that you wish to camp.

The YHA Manorbier campsite is a level field close to both the car park and the Youth Hostel. The field is surrounded by trees, hedges, willows and even a wildlife meadow and has stunning sea views. The campsite is peaceful and serene with plenty of space for children to play. Staying on the YHA Manorbier campsite means you get the best of both worlds - a great outdoor experience with all the superb new hostel facilities. Very popular with families, this campsite is also suitable for organised groups.

Campers have 24 hour access to indoor showers and WCs as well as cooking facilities with a door code. We even have hairdryers for your ultimate convenience!
There is a dedicated fire pit for campfires at the far end of the field.
Campers are allowed to have a BBQ as long as it is safe, supervised at all times and that care is taken to ensure no damage to the grass.

The main car park is just a minute's walk away from the campsite.

Camping Pods

YHA Manorbier is now home to three large camping pods. If you like camping but you could do without the sun, wind or rain then this is the holiday for you! These wooden camping pods have all the fun of camping but are completely protected from the elements, and they're heated! You are welcome to use the camping facilities including showers, hairdryers, toilets and self-catering kitchen and lounge. These camping pods make for a great family break and they have space for up to four people to sleep in - including one double bed and twin single beds. Mattresses, futons and all bedding are included for your comfort. Each pod has its own individual decking area.
