Why we've chosen Manorbier B&B:

Manorbier bed and breakfast is based in a family home where two rooms make up a perfectly formed little bed and breakfast by the sea in Pembrokeshire, Wales. The house has panoramic views towards Manorbier castle, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and Manorbier beach.

The Coast Path is a six minute walk away which runs along the beach. There are two guest bedrooms: a double en suite and a twin with sole use of a private bathroom just outside the room. Both rooms have sea views and overlook the castle, coast path and the beach. Situated in the oldest part of the house dating back to 1877 they are "cottage size", cosy rooms.

Guests have their own sitting room opening out to the guest seated patio area in the garden where you can relax for afternoon tea or drinks before going out to dinner. Guests have access to the sun loungers on the sun deck overlooking the sea in the front garden, that was designed by show garden designer Andy Sturgeon winner of multiple Royal Horticultural Society gold medals from the Chelsea Flower Show.

Awarded a Pembrokeshire Produce Mark for sourcing 98% of the breakfast food served supporting local producers for bacon, sausages and free range eggs. Home made bread, marmalade, jams and cakes are available for the delectation of guests. (vegetarians, gluten and lacto free diets no problem) Shower products come from Myddfai Trading Company, a social enterprise in Carmarthenshire who employ adults with learning difficulties. Their profits are used for rural regeneration in Myddfai and the surrounding area.

Manorbier is a charming little coastal village ten minutes from Tenby and fifteen minutes from Pembroke. An ideal base to explore the Coast path, the beautiful sandy beaches of South Pembrokeshire, castles and the stunning cathedral at St. David's. Guests can also take a boat trip offshore to marine nature reserve islands of Skomer, Ramsey and Grassholm; islands famous for their wildlife and sea bird colonies.

Eco credentials:

How do you reduce your draw on energy:
I have both photo voltaic and solar thermal panels with a Optiemersion system. Both my dishwasher and washing machine are A+ and A rated my tumble dryer which I really use is B rated. I tend to hang my washing on a clothes line outside or on an indoor ceiling mounted clothes airer. All my main lights throughout the house and in the garden are LED.

How you minimise the amount of waste you send to landfill:
At the present moment I seperate all guest waste and recycle through the council waste management scheme. For food waste I use a food caddy and put it out weekly in a food waste bin for collection by the coucil in the waste management scheme. For garden waste only I use both the council garden waste brown bin scheme and compost leaves and grass in my own compost bin. I use bulk dispensers in all the bathrooms. These products locally sourced and contain no parabens, SLS, SLES and are marked Cruelty Free. Myddfai.com it is a social enterprise project whose profits provide rural regeneration to the local area around Myddfai, but also employ as a work placement adults with learning difficulties allowing them experience to enter the work place.

How you reduce your consumption of water:
I have dual flush systems and a water meter. I collect rain water in a large tank to use for watering both the garden and the sedum roof on the summerhouse building. I tend to use Bio cleaning products.

How much of the food your serve is sourced locally (where possible): 
I have been awarded a Pembrokeshire Produce mark in recognition of sourcing 98% of my products locally. I use two local butchers to supply my sausages and bacon. These are packed in twos and four to reduce food waste (I only have two bed and breakfast rooms). I use Manorbier Free Range eggs and local honey. My laundry is done by a service who pick up and deliver, thus reducing both the petrol, wear and tear on my car and time which previous to 2015 was an 18 mile round trip.

Do you actively encourage guests to arrive on foot, by bike and by public transport?:
I work in conjunction with about 10 walking companies and have a bike shed for cyclists. I pick guests up from the station and have train and local bus timetables available for guests.
