Pembrokeshire’s Farmers Markets

National Vegetarian Week, a campaign established to celebrate veggies, runs from Monday 15th May until the Sunday 21st this year. The campaign, run by The Vegetarian Society, aims to encourage people to take a step out of their usual routine and go meat-free for the week. But if you’re an avid meat-eater, seven whole days of being meat-free can be somewhat of a challenge. Taking meat off the menu sometime results in the opinion that your meal options become more limited, but that needn’t be the case. Pembrokeshire always has a whole host of delicious produce on offer, a statement […]

National BBQ Month

With longer days and warmer weather, May makes the perfect choice when deciding which month to appoint the title of National BBQ Month, so it really is no wonder that the National Barbecue Association did so! I’m sure you don’t need any further encouragement to get involved but just in case you do, our Barbecue Packages are guaranteed to make a Pembrokeshire barbecue hard to resist this month! The most important thing when planning your barbecue is to make sure you have the best quality meat for everyone to enjoy. Our Barbecue Packs are bursting with local produce courtesy of […]

Stay near Pembrokeshire’s Cleddau Estuary

Just in case our previous blog has got you eager to explore Pembrokeshire’s “secret waterway”, we’ve shortlisted a few properties nearby to the estuary to help you on your way to booking your next stay near the Cleddau. If you’re thinking of planning a romantic retreat for two, look no further than Pond Cottage in Landshipping. With the area once a hive of activity for the coal industry, Pond Cottage was once an old miner’s cottage but has since been beautifully renovated to a high standard. This picturesque cottage is set on the shores of a tidal pond within two […]

Pembrokeshire’s Hidden Waterway: The Cleddau Estuary

With three edges of the county, Pembrokeshire is often fondly remembered for its spectacular coastline and beautiful beaches. With 186 miles of coastal path, over 50 beaches and coves, and a handful of interesting islands off the shores, there is certainly a lot to explore along the coast. That being said, it’s important not to overlook the rest of our county. After all, some of our most magnificent attractions are within the county’s rolling countryside. Pentre Ifan in the north is the alleged site of the original Stonehenge bluestones and driving across the Preseli hills between Haverfordwest and Cardigan is […]

Where to stay in Marloes

If you read our last blog post then a holiday in Marloes might just have taken your fancy. If that’s the case, here’s a pick of cottages that provide a fantastic base for a holiday in this lovely village! Tucked away in the heart of the village, Carpenters Cottage is a delightful traditional detached stone cottage that is deceptively spacious. It has been in the same family for years and so has been lovingly renovated. The living room  has beautiful exposed stone work and is furnished with a wonderful mix of contemporary and antique pieces. A sunny paved terrace and garden […]

Why Marloes?

If you like your holidays on the relaxed side with access to adventure, then Marloes could be the place for you. It’s a small village settled on high ground in the middle of the Marloes peninsula, which is surrounded by sea to the north, west and south at the southern end of St Brides Bay. This little village may seem sleepy at first glance, but its location makes it a spectacular destination for a holiday, and there are some hidden gems in the village itself.     One of the attractions of Marloes is its proximity to Skomer Island. A five […]

Gardens of Pembrokeshire

When you think Pembrokeshire, what is it that you picture? Is it a beautiful beach like Barafundle or Whitesands? Stunning sea views from the coast path? Fish and chips eaten on a harbour wall? Or is it a wonderful garden filled with flowers, trickling streams and ponds and perhaps surrounded by woodland? If the latter didn’t spring to mind, you could be missing out. As tempting as it is to spend your week in Pembrokeshire sunning yourself on the beach, the county’s warm and (occasionally) wet climate as well as its fertile soils mean that it is home to several gorgeous […]

Get away from it all at Forest View Cottages

Nestled at the base of a wooded valley on the edge of the Brechfa Forest in Carmarthenshire is this cluster of five holiday cottages. Set away from it all in 35 acres of grounds including a 3 acre horseshoe shaped lake, it is a slice of countryside paradise yet the market town of Carmarthen is only a 10 minute drive away should you tire of the greenery! The lake in particular is the perfect picnic spot particularly for bird watchers as kites and buzzards soar overhead, while swans and geese regularly nest on the lake. It’s not just the grounds themselves that make this a great […]

Easter Events in Pembrokeshire, 2017

Here in Pembrokeshire, we’ve been spoilt with a couple of sunny weekends recently. Those kind of weekends where you sit at the beach with an ice cream and a friend, making plans and dreaming about the summer. To give you peace of mind, we’re doing our best to keep the sun shining over our beautiful coastline for those of you who are packing your suitcases and loading up your cars in preparation for the Easter holidays. It’s looking bright out there today but fear not, we’re no strangers to breaking out a little sun-dance should the skies cloud over. (Note, […]
