Wales’ most romantic time of year

With Valentine’s Day just a month away and the Welsh valentines celebration, St Dwynwen’s Day, taking place on the 25th January, there’s no time of the year more romantic.

Both days have their own legends. Saint Dwynwen is remembered for wishing that God would help all future lovers after a love triangle between her, her true love and the man her father had arranged she marry left her heartbroken. There are a number of stories surrounding the history of Valentine but a popular belief is that the he was a Roman priest who helped arrange secret marriages during a period when the emperor had banned marriage.

So why not surprise your sweetheart with a break away to the Pembrokeshire coast, complete with an extra surprise or two to help shower your lover with love and appreciation?
