Weddings and Ceremonies at Monk Haven Manor…
Monk Haven Manor is set within 20 acres of an ancient wooded valley in the Coastal National Park of Pembrokeshire. We are an idyllic and excitingly versatile venue specialising in bespoke outdoor celebrations.
If you are looking for something unique and extra-special, then Monk Haven Manor could be the ideal place you have been searching for.
The old and established grounds are surrounded by woodland, with wild-flower gardens drenched in ferns, pink campion, primroses, foxgloves and bluebells.
Discover the magical hidden features such as ivy-covered follies, the historic walled garden, our pretty pond and the secret cove of Monk Haven. Imagine the enjoyment and the creativity you can have incorporating these into your day.
One of the fantastic aspects of Monk Haven is the pretty medieval church of St Ishmael's. As the church is onsite, it's just a simple walk from the ceremony to your reception.
Or perhaps you would like to have the ceremony within the gardens of Monk Haven, surrounded by the lush green valley and the sound of the gentle brook.
Monk Haven has significant room for a marquee, stretch tent or tipi within the sheltered stone-walled garden. This also has amenities, catering facilities and an outdoor bar.
Our beautiful accommodation will be just what your guests' need if travelling from distances to attend the wedding. 18 guests can be accommodated in a range of rooms from our cottage with the hot tub, to the shepherd's hut with sea views.
Here at Monk Haven we will enjoy your journey with you and endeavour to create your vision. Our venue has so much to offer that you can be as creative as you wish. Our relaxed and flexible approach will ensure that you enjoy the freedom to plan out all of your wedding ideas.

The Valley of Monk Haven
The wooded valley of Monk Haven leads down to the Pembrokeshire coast path. In this picture you can see the folly on the cliff which is a stunning site for photos with the back drop of the blue sea. The walled garden is perfect for marquees as it is so sheltered. It's a definite sun trap! The pond you can see brings a special touch to the walk to the beach. This is also a fabulous spot for photo opportunities, surrounded by the lush green of the woods. The woods themselves hold an array of opportunities for your imagination to go crazy thinking about how you may utilise them! The sweet cove of Monk Haven is of course a wedding photographers dream, with a high and dramatic red-sandstone wall.
St Ishmael's Church
You can see the beautiful medieval church of St Ishmael's, set within the valley itself and just a stones-throw from the reception venue. The onsite accommodation is also perfect for your most important family and friends of course. In the first picture (just out of shot!) in the top field to the left, is our Shepherd's Hut with sea views. This could be the perfect place for you to escape to after the festivities, to relax together and think back on your fabulous day!
