The Manse

The Manse is located in Freystrop, on the outskirts of Haverfordwest


Located in the small friendly village of Freystrop on the outskirts of Haverfordwest in Pembrokeshire, The Manse is a spacious home for up to 5 adults from age 18.

The home combines peaceful village living with direct access to Pembrokeshire’s largest market town, with its shops, cafes and amenities just two miles away.


At The Manse we support adults with complex needs associated with autism. We embrace sector-leading practice and blend education, care and therapeutic support to provide tailor-made placements for unique individuals.

The home has a large back garden for relaxing in or for catching up with friends, and adults have access to the facilities at Orbis’ Bangeston Hall in Pembroke Dock, including allotments, gardens, a huge polytunnel, smallholding, art room, music room and much more.

Care at The Manse is individually tailored with adults placed at the centre of their own developmental pathway. We support adults to play an active and valued role in their community supported by meaningful and engaging activities, leisure and learning programmes.

Our primary aim is to provide a safe environment that encourages individuality, self-confidence, self-esteem and lifelong learning.

Ours is a person-centred approach. We encourage adults to learn and develop skills that will enable them to play an active role in their community, supporting them to make their own informed decisions. We also work closely with families and carers to support individuals to develop and maintain relationships.

We encourage our residents to participate in positive risk taking, helping them to develop roles, responsibilities and confidence within their daily lives and, at all times, we support them to become independent via a focus on lifelong learning.

We want to improve and maintain the quality of life for adults by nurturing and promoting independence. This is underpinned by Positive Behaviour Support - focusing on setting realistic goals and understanding behaviour in order to provide our residents with proactive coping strategies to overcome their difficulties. This non-sanction-based model of care celebrates and reinforces good and positive behaviour, leading residents to associate their home life with being happy.

Therapeutic Services

At The Manse our residents’ therapeutic needs are supported by the local health team in Pembrokeshire.
