fforest coast


a small secluded ex dairy farm set in 10 acres of rural bliss, a 15 minute leisurely stroll from a quiet, beautiful and expansive National Trust beach.

fforest Coast, known locally as Manorafon, is perfect for the quieter, smaller, more intimate wedding for up to 60 guests. 10 acres in a secluded valley with outstanding views and one of Wales’ best National Trust beaches on the doorstep. We hold a maximum of 8 weddings at fforest Coast each year. The serene coastal location means that we limit the volume and location of any music  to preserve our neighbours’ enjoyment of the valley. 

Set away from the accommodation, the rustic Dutch barn is the setting for wedding day dining or partying. The large, level barn terrace looking out across the valley is the perfect spot for an informal barbecue or relaxing over a sundowner, while a vintage marquee on the barn lawn is a flexible space for a humanist ceremony, an outdoor bar or a more creative use. It’s up to you.

Guests stay in log cabins and geodesic domes while the bridal party takes over the old farmhouse.




fforest Coast can accommodate celebrations for a maximum of 60 guests, dining in the rustic Dutch barn and using the vintage marquee on the lawn for a humanist ceremony, chill out space or pop up bar.  We also have a huge raised level deck, looking across the valley, that can be used of a drinks reception or informal dining. The serene location means that there is a strict limit volume of any music  to preserve our neighbours’ enjoyment of the valley.

‘I was bowled over the first time I saw Manorafon- the beauty of this Welsh valley and the close proximity to the idyllic Penbryn beach. …The atmosphere was brilliant right from the first arrivals onwards and level of chatter and laughter was evident from the word 'go'. We had an amazing time and were looked after so well by you – thank you to all of you for attending to our wishes and needs, nothing appeared to be too much trouble. The food was delicious too and got better and better as the weekend progressed. - We felt very privileged to have the freedom to enable us to create Gemma and Adam's own style of wedding. -they were able to live the dream, decorating and arranging the creations around the site as if it  was our own garden - thank you for this freedom!’
