Pre and Post Wedding Getaways

Romance is well and truly in the air. St Dwynwen’s Day (the day the Welsh celebrate Valentines) has just passed on the 25th January, Valentines Day is just around the corner on the 14th and we’ll be making an appearance exhibiting at Celtic Manor’s Wedding Fayre this Sunday, the 12th February. And so, it would be inappropriate for today’s blog topic to be about anything other than romantic getaways.

Pembrokeshire is the perfect place to escape to with your loved one. Just think long walks hand in hand along sandy beaches, delicious meals at romantic restaurants by the sea, and cosy evenings curled up inside homely cottages.

We have a great selection of cottages which are ideal for honeymoons and minimoons. A minimoon is as you might have guessed, a miniature version of a honeymoon. A practical idea for those of you who can only spare a little time away, but still deserve a celebratory getaway after your nuptials. The Smithy is a beautiful, detached stone cottage with slate floors and exposed beams. Overlooking the quaint harbour at Abercastle, we recommend taking a stroll with your sweetheart along the nearby coastal path for stunning views across the west coast of Pembrokeshire.


If you’re planning a restful break away with your bridal party, why not stay in one of our luxury cottages and book a Private Yoga Class or a Pamper Party? Stay at Brierbank in Tenby where you can spoil yourself with luxurious facials and massages or destress with an hour of yoga, before spending a relaxing evening in the property’s hot tub. Brierbank is a short walk from Tenby’s town centre where you can spend a morning shopping or even sample lunch at one of the popular eateries.


For the groomsmen, opt for a property such as Norchard and spend the weekend practising your hole in one! Norchard is nestled in the wooded slopes of Trefloyne Golf Course and Country Club, making it a great spot for the men in the wedding party. Cook up one of our delicious food hampers and sample a few bottles of beer handcrafted in Tenby itself, and you’ve got the complete package.

Of course, it’s not just you who might be wanting a little break from wedding planning. Perhaps you want to say a sincere thank you to your parents or the in-laws for all their help? A little Pembrokeshire air is a wonderful way to show your appreciation. Give them a Gift Voucher for a stay or better yet, book in a surprise break for them. Located in the heart of Little Haven, The Old Butchers Shop is a great base for a cosy retreat pre or post-Wedding. Just a stone’s throw from the village’s pubs and harbour, a stay at The Old Butchers Shop is sure to be a delightful gift for anyone.
