Spotlight on YHA Manorbier

Spotlight on YHA Manorbier

With its sci-fi look and sun-drenched campsite, YHA Manorbier is perfect for fun activity holidays. This refurbished hostel has stunning beaches on the doorstep, top Welsh attractions within reach and a stylish makeover under its belt. Whether you're exploring the seaside delights of Tenby or the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path just outside, there’s a lot to make YHA Manorbier a favourite.

The Hostel

Looking for a location that stands out from the crowd? YHA Manorbier is a hostel with a difference - our futuristic building used to belong to the Ministry of Defence! After closing in the 1960s, YHA rescued this quirky structure in the 80s and we have never looked back. Our hostel boasts an amazing spot on the Pembrokeshire cliffs and there's ocean as far as the eye can see. We've just had a fab makeover and our social spaces are in great shape. Come and get comfy on our stylish new furniture; our decor is cooler than ever but we're still wonderfully cosy. If you're feeling peckish, the on-site Skrinkle Cafe is a hidden gem and bustles with happy holiday-makers - join us for a slice of cake to reward your walk here. You'll find everything you need for a family-friendly break and you can even take over the whole of YHA Manorbier on Exclusive Hire. Expect BBQs in the sun, traditional Welsh grub, local ales and live music later in the summer too. It's impossible not to be charmed by our area, so book a visit to see why we all love it so much.

Welsh Attractions

There's loads to do in Pembrokeshire and you'll find attractions to keep you coming back for more. We're a scenic 25 minute walk from Manorbier; a charming village and home to Manorbier Castle. Get your Welsh history fix here, or drive to Carew Castle or Pembroke Castle - they're less than 10 miles away and host some awesome events. Folly Farm Adventure Park & Zoo is a treat for little ones, or take the boat to the eye-wateringly beautiful Caldey Island (home to monks who make the best fudge EVER). If you're an adrenaline junkie, burn off some steam at Oakwood Theme Park or at Heatherton World of Activities. You can even have fun when it's raining; just head to the Blue Lagoon waterpark for undercover waves and flumes. The gorgeous seaside town of Tenby is only 5 miles away from us too - packed with restaurants, shops and colourful music venues. How about staying for Tenby Blues Festival or Pembrokeshire Fish Week? YHA Manorbier is a fantastic base to get your teeth into vibrant Welsh culture.

Outdoor Activities

Life's a beach at YHA Manorbier and we've got two stunning ones just 5 minutes away. Spend the day building sandcastles at Skrinkle Haven, or explore the rocks and caves at Church Doors. Don't miss a swim at Barafundle Bay - voted many times as one of the best beaches in the world - and a walk through the Bosherton Lily Ponds, an otherworldly paradise of man-made scenery. Walkers love our location for the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, so remember to bring a camera to capture miles of dramatic scenery. In fact, many guests come from abroad just to take on our nearby National Trail. Want to get close and personal with the coastline? Scramble across rocks and "jump off cliffs" with an adventurous course of coasteering - there's a school just down the road. There's fantastic surfing near our hostel too, so bring a board and ask us where the best swells are. We're ideal for activity breaks and you'll find plenty of exciting watersports to keep you cool. Or if you're a cyclist, there are plenty of peaceful country lanes to enjoy.

Camping and Cabins

Our wooden camping pods at YHA Manorbier are perfect for family holidays - you can wake up with a glorious sea view from their glass doors. They're heated, contain beds and are great for glampers who like a little more luxury. Or, plan a traditional camping holiday on our peaceful campsite; it's surrounded by trees, hedgerows and has a lovely wildlife meadow for hours of natural entertainment. You could even hook up a camper van or kick off your own BBQ. Our fancy new facilities for campers are separate to the main hostel and have all the mod cons you need. Expect hairdryers, glamorous mirrors and a shiny self-catering kitchen. So what are you waiting for? Find out why everyone loves it so much at YHA Manorbier.
