Most the existing strucrtures date from between 1130 and 1300 making the castle an excellent example of its kind. Entrance to the inner ward is through a rectangular gatehouse on the eastern curtain wall protected by two round towers at each end of the wall. At the far end of the inner ward are the chapel and the remains of the stone hall.
The house within the castle walls is available for holidays all year round. Manorbier Castle is situatied within the UK's only Coastal National Park with easy access to the coast paths, 2 minutes from the beach.
