Get all the fun of camping but without any of the set up stresses with these beautiful bell tents - part of the YHA Glamping experience. These spacious tipi-like tents are fully kitted out with a double futon bed and three single futons plus all bedding and can sleep four or five people. They also have eco-friendly solar lighting and comfy bean bags for you to chill out on during the day plus bedside tables, a coffee table, rugs and soft flooring.

There are four tents available at YHA Manorbier which are available to book for stays between May and September.


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.

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.

YHA Manorbier is a futuristic ex MOD building on the Pembrokeshire coast path,  with great views out to sea. It has been a Youth Hostel for 25 years and underwent a refurbishment to many of its communal areas in 2015, with even more TLC and a fresh new look planned for 2016.

Meet the team

Martin Has been at YHA Manorbier for seven years and has great knowledge of the area from exploring the cliffs and beaches during his time off. He can offer a wealth of information about secret beaches and where to go for the best surfing, cycling, walking or climbing.

Manager recommends: Jump aboard a boat to Caldey Island. After twenty minutes at sea you’ll land on Priory beach - a gorgeous stretch of sand and the only place to go sea bathing. You could spend the day here (particularly if you bring a picnic). Plus it’s just a short stroll to the village and monastery.
