Month: January 2017


Dreaming of Summer Sunshine…

January is the Monday morning of the months; the festivities of Christmas have come to an abrupt end with the start of a new working year, the nights sometimes seem everlasting, and the weather can be less than cheerful. It’s no wonder than many of us start looking ahead to the warmer months for motivation to help get through this month-long Monday morning. And what better motivation than thoughts of a summer spent in Pembrokeshire with warm days, summer sunshine and sand between the toes? Pembrokeshire is the perfect place for a summer holiday with over 40 beaches to choose […]

Pop the question in Pembrokeshire on St Dwynwen’s Day

Asking someone to marry you is wonderful on any day of the year. Think about it, you’re saying that out of however many billion people there are, you’d like them to be the one that sticks around forever. That’s pretty special.

We have the whole year in front of us and who knows what it is going to bring? Fingers crossed for good fortune, good health and good […]

New Year Resolutions

With the turn of the New Year, it’s natural to start thinking about the next twelve months ahead. It’s safe to say that we all tend to look upon the New Year as a chance to wipe the slate clean and start again. This fresh outlook on the future encourages many to create New Year’s Resolutions, such as aiming to live a healthier life after all that indulgent eating and drinking over the Christmas festivities. Now I know you might be thinking that it’s a little late to be thinking about the New Year and setting yourself a resolution, but […]

Restaurants in Pembrokeshire with something a little different!

As well as award winning beaches, stunning coast path walks and historic landmarks, Pembrokeshire is also home to some of the best places to eat in the UK. Coastal Cottages is a company full of foodies, and so we often blog about the latest life-changing meal we’ve had that week, from the steak at The Cwtch in St Davids, or the curry at The Royal Oak in Newport. This time I’m focusing on some restaurants in the area that provide that something that’s a bit different, that will make you remember that one place on your holiday that made you […]
