Visited Manorpark on Friday, 19 April 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Very relaxing walking around and feeding the wallabies. Lovely to see the animals not caged and enjoyed the story of Steve and Lisa and now Bryn the baby. Also not too commercialised which was nice. Keep up the good work. (read more)

We'd seen the park on tv and love their ethos of having endangered species, and proper sized enclosures rather than zoos with a massive selection of animals in cramped spaces. We visited with buggies, children, adults and pensioners and it was smiles all around - the babies best bit was meeting the sheep face to face, the kids loved the free tricycles to zoom around on, we all liked seeing what endangered status the different animals were at and learning thier facts and the adults loved...

Manor House Wildlife Park is set in wonderful spacious grounds. Some enclosures you can get very up close and personal with the animals and my daughter loved feeding the wallabys. One of the keepers was feeding the meerkats when we arrived at their enclosure and what we don't know about meerkats now really isn't worth knowing. I think you have to remember this is a conservation park and your entrance fee contributes towards this work, as well as the vast costs that must be incurred by the... (read more)

Sorry but where are the animals it is basically all fields with hardly any animals -- a waste of money (read more)

Complete rip-off, there are hardley any animals. The enclosure often refers to the wrong animals or animals that are invisible. We travelled all the way from Swansea to spend £20 to get in for about an hour, if that.
Really not worth the time or money!!! (read more)

after taking a winter break we thought it would be a good idea to visit the manor house wildlife park. it didn't live up to our expectations. we understood that it was winter but to pay 9.95 each when there was hardly any animals to be seen we belive that this was not worth the money. we wouldn't go again and we wouldn't recommend the park to any one else.

I love this place. We returned after 12 months and were very impressed with the improvements. Steve and Lisa came out to see us, which my 4 year old loved as she has been talking about Steve all year. Its well worth seeing every time we visit Pembrokeshire. We took a picnic as there is plenty of space. Staff very friendly and helpful everywhere clean and tidy. Cant wait to visit again next year. (read more)

We took our 4 children to Manor house, it cost us nearly £40 entry fee, we were expecting a full day out but had seen everything within an hour and a half.
the wallaby walkthrough was closed (which was understandable as an accident had happened days earlier)
There werent that many animals out, we just walked around and could see the dissapointment on the childrens faces.
the gibbons were lovely but were up high in the trees so the children didnt see much, the turtles were in doors so the... (read more)

My partner and I spent a full day here and had a fantastic day out. The park is very spacious, enough room for all the anilmals we found. We had lunch there, including two cakes, and we thought the price was very reasonable, as our food was very nice indeed! The entry price was excellent, especially as we spent all day there, we felt we had our money's worth. Anna Ryder Richardson was around all day, chatting to visitors and making people feel welcome. Nice to see her out and about. We took... (read more)

took our 3 year old and she loved it!! only downside i could find that there wasnt enough toilets around, only at the Manor House a fair walk from the animal enclosers we had to run all the way back from the rhino hut!!
we loved the picnic and play areas ,and the hay barn was a huge success.the only animal we did not see was the zebra,a very child friendly day out and did not feel"ripped off " in any way (read more)

We initially went to Manor Farm on the day it reopened two years ago thought it would be interesting to see what had changed since then.
The wallaby walk through is great, our 9 year old daughter loved being able to stroke them, and the lemur walk through was also excellent.
We didn't see all the animals - didn't spot the tapirs (but it was a bit rainy and I don't know if they were just hiding away in their shelter), however the majority of the others were there, all looking very... (read more)

Don't go if you expect a theme park with rides!!
Manor House Wildlife Park is centred on animals and conservation. We took our 2 grandsons(aged4&3)and were there all day! The animal walkthroughs are brilliant and the natural play areas are ideal. Good locally sourced food,plentiful portions and reasonably priced. also plenty of picnic spaces.Not as 'commercial' as Folly Farm, with a good range of well thought out gifts in shop. A very relaxed and laid back day.
It hasn't been going that long... (read more)

Visited Manor House mid July. The 'star' Gibbons were locked in their house because workmen were fitting drainage pipes in the compound. No sign of the Marmosets, the Rhino shelter doesn't house any Rhino's, but that isn't clearly stated anywhere. The Flamingos are on the map but not there in reality. On the plus side the Lemur and Wallaby walkthrough sections were good but overall disappointed. Perhaps the place will improve in time and I wish them well but after 2 hours there was nothing...

having been to manor house as a child and taking my daughter as a child we decided to take our grandson how manor house has changed it was lovely to see steve and lisa, and my grandson loved the walabys that was a real treat to get up so close and be able to touch them, but was very disappointed that there were no zebras or rhinos to be seen and it wasnt for the want of looking also would be nice if set times could be set for feeding and this advertised as if some of the animals are in there...

Wished i never bothered. Overpriced, never saw more half the animals, place looking liked it needed a good clean. Really warm day but the kiosk by the zebras was closed just when we needed a drink. Qverall a shocking experience and would close the place down until it gets it act together. If you read this do not go. (read more)

After a good hour talking to the young keeper whos name was rob we had some lunch from the cafe. again the staff were loverly. the food was great. the animals were happy and healthy and me, my husband and two childran had a...

A brilliant day out. My Wife and our two kids aged 10 and 8 thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Walking amongst the Wallabies was a treat, my 8 year old was in heaven stroking the Albino(White) one. We had a great picnic on the lawn in front of the Manor. In the afternoon we walked around the grounds in the beautiful sunshine, and the children spent over an hour in the Haybarn, jumping around and crawling through the bales. All in all a wonderful day out. The prices were good and we had voucher... (read more)

Very disappointed with the whole experience, absolutely nothing there, compare this park with others such as Folly Farm, absolutely no contest.
Grounds very overgrown, hardly any animals, staff young and giggly,needed help to operate the coffee machine.
Late opening, no change at admission gate.
Two Deer with mange or mites and camels that looked awful, the fish pond needed a good scrubbing could hardly see the fish and all the pens were very over grown. Birds, - what birds?
I remember how... (read more)

Manor House is vastly improved with a great light and airy cafe with simple but yummy food - the coffee is great! We loved taking our three children there aged 6-10 years old. They love the fact that they are able to walk into some enclosures to be close to the animals. It is a very different atmosphere to Folly Farm as it is far less commercial and you have a clearer sense of the conservation aspect of what they are trying to achieve.
We live locally and will be visiting throughout the... (read more)

Maybe I shouldn't compare Manorhouse Wildlife Park with Folly Farm as it is an up and coming tourist attraction,but when they are charging a higher entry fee than Folly Farm, well come on!The staff in the cafeteria I found rude ,as the boy that that took my money continued to have a conversation with a fellow female workmate rather than serve me.A very disappointing , expensive day out .Later on that evening when my husband happened to mention our day out to the children our eight year old...

Manor House Wildlife Park, Pembrokesshire A wonderful experience. Animals healthy and happy in huge enclosures. staff friendly and knowledgeable. Remember this is at the end of the season, many places would be fed up of answering the same questions time after time, but ALL staff we spoke to made us feel we were important and valued. Food and drinks were reasonably priced and portions were generous. When the peacock ate some cream from my dish, I was immediately offered a replacement. ... (read more)

you can tell Manor House Wildlife Park needs alot of work. But In the hands of a dedicated team Im in no doubt that they will get there.
The park is very aged in places, but given time its their wish the the park be brought up to modern standards with the animals comming first.
Obviously this will take time and money.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time there, we met Steve the gibbon waiting to venture into his new enclosure, in time the park will sell itself on its own merrits.

Set in Wales, in the grounds of a manor house, which is lovely. The first area is the spacious paddocks home to camels and free range deer. Near this is a massive enclosure home to zebra, bison and emu. A small grotto is lovely and near it is the flamingo pool. Behind the manor is the kiddies farm, with farm animals in good pens. The close encounters unit has rabbits, invertebrates and budgies in good enclosures. The walled garden is home to small animals in good enclosures including owls,... (read more)
