Countdown to National Butchers Week

Just over two weeks away is National Butchers Week – a week dedicated to our beloved independent butchers across the land who promise to supply us with the very best produce week after week. Running between the 12th and 18th March this year, Butchers Week is an annual event established to help draw attention to our local butchers who are standing strong on our high streets and to encourage all of us as shoppers, to continue shopping with them – after all, they do offer great products!

Here at Coastal Cottages of Pembrokeshire, we’re delighted to be supporting one of our very own local butchers, Jon James and Son, to bring our guests quality produce so they can cook up delicious meals throughout their stay. The James family have been butchers in Pembrokeshire since the early 19th Century so as you might expect, they know a lot about meat!

Through our Concierge service, we have a range of Food Hampers available but our meat hampers are without a doubt, some of our most popular packages. Whether you’re holidaying in winter or summer, staying with all the family or just the two of you; we have the perfect meat hamper for you.


Our Farmhouse Breakfast Hamper (£25) is a top choice all year round. With our butcher’s own homemade sausages and thick cut bacon, you can enjoy a hearty start to your day complete with locally grown mushrooms and tomatoes and of course, free range eggs. We’ve completed this hamper with black pudding, a farmhouse loaf and Heinz baked beans.

The Sunday Lunch Hampers are favourites in the winter when the weather outside is cold and the whole family are gathering around a countryside dining table for a warming meal. We’ve paired up quality meat with the freshest seasonal vegetables to ensure you have a mouth-watering roast dinner. But we know everyone has their own favourite meat for a roast, so you can choose one meat from a choice of Pembrokeshire Welsh Beef, Fresh Pork or Grade A Farm Fresh Chicken. Feed up to 4 with our £20 hamper or up to 6 with our £30 option – you can even add on an extra joint of meat if you fancy, just let us know.


And for those of you staying in the summer, you’ll want to choose from our endless options of BBQ Packs. Keep it small and simple for £25 or plan a meat feast for £55! We’re talking butcher’s own sausages and traditional beef burgers, pork steaks, chicken breast fillets, BBQ spare ribs, chicken kebabs, beef kebabs, flavoured kebabs, beef steaks, and Chinese spare ribs – these hampers really are the ultimate in meat selections! We have four options available.

And those of you who stay with us over the festive period each year will know that we offer Christmas Dinner Hampers to help take a little of the strain off those end-of-year holidays. These limited packages are available for all December holidays and usually consist of a turkey butterfly (no bones!), delicious homemade pigs in blankets, a gammon joint and those must-have Pembrokeshire potatoes with seasonal vegetables including carrots, Brussel sprouts and parsnips. We even include stuffing and cranberry sauce so all bases are covered!


During your stay this year, why not add on one (or more!) of our impressive butchers hampers for a guaranteed delicious meal?

If the hampers listed above are missing that vital ingredient for your favourite meal, or if you’re simply looking to purchase a hamper full of your chosen meats, call our Concierge Team on 01437 772755 who will be happy to discuss tailoring something to suit your wishes.
