Year: 2009


Santa’s Grotto 7th November – 20th December 2009 10am – 4pm Saturdays and Sundays only Bring the kids to meet Santa, his elves and his real-life reindeer. If they’ve been good this year they’ll get a present and if you’ve been good you’ll get a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie. Please note: An extra charge of £6.50 per child applies to visit Santa and this is in addition to park admission charges.

The countdown continues….only three weeks to go! The festive season is upon us and the cottages still available for Christmas are going like hot mince pies! We do still have some late availability for Christmas and New Year so get in touch if you fancy celebrating Pembrokeshire-style – just picture sitting around a roaring fire in a cosy cottage, last-minute Christmas shopping in Narberth (which i’m planning on doing tomorrow), long walks on a deserted beach after filling up on locally-reared turkey plus mince pies and mulled wine, the wonderful carol service in St. Davids Cathedral and of course Tenby’s […]

This weekend three of our ladies are representing Coastal Cottages at Discover Dogs at London’s Earls Court 1. The wonderful woof and wag-worthy show is on from today, Saturday 14th November, to 5pm tomorrow. So take a four-legged friend along and call in to Stand 140 to say hello and pick up some great information on dog-friendly holidays in Pembrokeshire and details of The Woof Guide. I have just spoken to Linda on the phone and there’s an awful lot of barking, yapping and howling in the background! (and yes I do mean the dogs.) For more details see http://www.discoverdogs.org.uk/ […]

Remember when Christmas shopping was something you could put off until the last minute, and then rush through, in one evening? Alone? Ahhh-those were the days, weren’t they?Now you have little shoppers, and you can’t rush through anything, anymore, and a trip to the any shop-is an operation which requires military-style planning.You can’t wait until late at night. You can’t slide and squeeze and speed your way through the crowds. And, most of all, you can’t dawdle, examining something on the shelf-when you’re shopping with small children, dawdling is definitely forbidden.“Mommy, I want that!””Daddy, I’m hungry!””I have to go to […]

Coastal Cottages’ Guests donate £15,000 to the County 2009 has seen a unique venture by Coastal Cottages and their guests, resulting in over £15,000 being raised to donate to local teams and volunteers. Matthew, Sophie and most of the team were all brought up in Pembrokeshire and they all feel so passionate about the need to support those that quite literally spend their lives looking after our landscape. Matthew said “ Our guests come back year after year and sometimes several times a year! They love Pembrokeshire and appreciate the natural unspoilt beauty of so many special spots along the […]

It’s that time of year again and we’re all debating the merits of witches versus vampires here in the office – it’s a bit of a deja vu. This season Sarah T will be sporting a vampire lady get-up whilst Leanne is planning on parading around as a bat. Faye will be trick or treating and I’m trying to think of something to beat my triumphant ghost buster costume of last year (complete with real hoover). There are all sorts of seasonal events on around the county to celebrate All Hallowes Eve which perfectly coincide with half term – including […]

Last Friday evening we all enjoyed a fun-filled thrash bash at The Swan in Little Haven – a chance to get together and enjoy each others’ company out of the office. The hordes of Coastal Cottages and Activity Wales staff descended upon the village on a beautiful balmy evening and gorged themselves on good food, good wine and even better conversation (some more crude than others!) The wine was flowing – quite literally across the table at one point and the apple and pear pie went down a storm. I must admit though, I was surprised to find other members […]

Autumn is in the air! Or is it in fact summer at long last? We’re all enjoying beautiful weather here in Pembrokeshire and we’re making the most of it. Sadie enjoyed an early morning walk at Newgale yesterday and I spent Saturday at Musselwick – one of Pembrokeshire’s most beautiful hidden treasures in my view, followed by a pint of prawns sitting on the sea wall in Dale. The sailing boats, dinghies and kayaks were all out in force and one could easily while away a blissful afternoon sitting on the wall looking out to sea and taking it all […]

What lovely weather appeared over the weekend just gone, summer has made an appearance at last! September is a fairly reliable month when it comes to the sun shining as far as I can remember – it doesn’t preach to be glorious like July and August and then disappoint us all by raining. September just seems to enlighten us all by releasing the rays, bombarding us with clear blue skies making us all smile after a dismal so called summer. I am very much a fan of September. Saturday was glorious. It was so warm and sunny which made for […]
