With the Six Nations in full swing and St Davids Day just around the corner, we can’t help but get a little extra “Welsh” at this time of year. The desire for a cuppa and a warm Welsh cake grows as the days near spring and we’re anxiously waiting for the day which brings along the first sighting of a daffodil (although I have it on good authority that there are a few of these yellow beauties already visible in Abercastle).
This is one of our favourite times of the year to welcome our guests to our little part of the Welsh countryside; there’s a sense of magic lingering in the air as we wait for warmer weather and bustling shores.
So to help you capture a little of that magic during your stay, we’ve put together a shortlist of our favourite Holiday Hampers bursting with Welsh produce. Buy as a gift for your beau, share with the family or take one home as a memento.
The Welsh Produce Hamper (£40) is our most popular hamper, and it’s no wonder why! This impressive hamper is packed with firm favourites that the whole family can enjoy alongside a cup of tea. We’ve chosen our most scrumptious treats such as Welsh Cakes and Bara Brith – personally recommended with a little bit of butter for a true tasty snack. We’ve also included some of the county’s best-selling toffee waffles and more.
If you’re lacking a sweet tooth and in the need for something savoury, look no further than our Cheese Hampers (from £35). Packed with flavoured cheeses made in Snowdonia, these hampers come in two different sizes (depending on your group size or your love of cheese!) and include a selection of accompanying nibbles such as grapes, biscuits and chutney.
For a sophisticated night in, try out our Welsh Whisky Hamper (£50) complete with a bottle of the finest Penderyn Welsh Single Malt Whisky. Enjoy your drink neat or on the rocks, we’ve even added in a Welsh cheese and more to keep you covered if and when those late night cravings kick in.
The Celebration Hamper (£40) is an ideal addition if you’re staying in the area for a special occasion. After a day exploring the coast, settle down in front of a roaring fire and enjoy a cosy night in with your sweetheart. With two Welsh ciders and two flavoured Welsh cheeses, this hamper is a wonderful package for sharing. You can even tuck into a bar of Nom-Nom chocolate and some Welsh fudge for when you’re in need of something sweet.
Cook up a hearty roast dinner with our Sunday Lunch Hampers (from £20) overflowing with mouth-watering local produce. We’ve teamed up with a local butcher to ensure you receive the very best quality meat; choose your cut from Pembrokeshire Welsh Beef, Fresh Pork or Grade A Farm Fresh Chicken. Each hamper comes with a selection of fresh seasonal vegetables and Pembrokeshire’s own potatoes – this might be a little biased, but local potatoes make the creamiest mash!
Sample some of the local’s favourite tipples with a Tenby Beer Hamper (from £12.50). Handcrafted in one of Pembrokeshire’s popular seaside towns, these beers are brought to you from microbrewery Tenby Brewing Co. The case of three makes a perfect souvenir whilst the case of twelve gives you plenty to throughout your stay.
