World Book Day: Pembrokeshire’s Links to Famous Authors

I am a proud bookworm and World Book Day was always one of my favourite celebrations as a child. This year World Book Day falls on the 3rd March, and it has me thinking about all the authors who once found their creative brilliance buried deep within the Pembrokeshire countryside. When you think about it, it really is no surprise to learn that Pembrokeshire has been the inspiration to many an author. I think we can all agree that there is a sense of magic and adventure throughout the county; the rolling hills are waiting to be explored, the beaches (ahem, Barafundle […]

Spoil your Mum this Mother’s Day

Sunday 6th March sees the nation celebrate this year’s Mother’s Day, and quite deservedly so! Our mums deserve to be recognised at least once a year! Our mums do so much for us that we may not even realise most of the time, and sometimes it’s very easy to take what they do for us for granted. So what are you doing to show your mum your appreciation this year? Personally, we here at Coastal Cottages don’t think you can ever go wrong with giving the gift of a relaxing cottage break by the coast. Hide away in one of […]

Spend St Davids Day in Pembrokeshire!

It’s always around this time of year that the Welsh become incredibly patriotic. The Six Nations are well under way and as you can expect, the red rugby shirts are being washed, dried and ironed almost weekly ready for the next game. But that’s not the only reason we’re breaking out the red shirts, the national flags and the face paints – in two weeks it is of course, March 1st aka St Davids Day. Is there ever a better time to holiday in Wales? You may argue that the summertime is the best; when the days are long, the […]

Pembrokeshire’s Finest Pancakes!

So, it’s arrived… one of my favourite days of the calendar… PANCAKE DAY! Here in Pembrokeshire, pancakes are always a popular choice, but what do you prefer- Sweet or Savoury? Hot or Cold? Long gone are the days of a simple sugar and lemon topping, each year sees more and more creativeness when it comes to pancakes and this year is certainly no exception.
