Part of Coastal's Concierge team, I'm always on the lookout for new and exciting things Pembrokeshire has to offer, whether that be delicious local produce, new attractions or fun events! I love a walk along the Coastal Path on a crisp winter's day and settling down at the beach with a good book.

Start afresh this New Year

Christmas can be a pretty hectic time of year.  By the time you’ve attended all the required social engagements, shopped for all the perfect presents and dealt with the pressures of planning the perfect dinner for the big day, a rest will be well-earned. So why not do your future self a little favour and plan a New Year’s getaway to the coast for January 2018? There is nowhere better to spend cold January days than surrounded by Pembrokeshire’s stunning coastline breathing in that beautiful fresh air each morning. (But then I might be slightly biased!) To help you shake […]

Festive Shopping at its best!

One of my favourite things about the festive season is wrapping up warm and heading out to explore the Christmas markets across the county. Combine shopping with cold crisp weather, Christmassy nibbles, festive music and picturesque Pembrokeshire locations – you have the perfect day! Picton Castle one of the first to host their Victorian Christmas Market this season on the 18th and 19th November. The stately surroundings of the 13th Century Castle make for a truly memorable market with stalls throughout the corridors and courtyard. Enjoy performances from The Salvation Army Brass Band plus cookery demonstrations – learn tips for […]

Tenby’s Annual Blues Fest Returns!

One of Tenby’s most loved annual events returns to the seaside town once again this November; the Blues Festival runs between Friday 10th and Sunday 12th November. With less than two weeks to go, it’s time to download your copy of the programme and start planning which performances you’re going to attend! Now in its twelfth year, the festival is pulling together all kinds of international and local musicians to create a truly spectacular weekend of music focussing this year, on world blues. Performances take place across various venues throughout the weekend; the De Valence on Upper Frog Street acts […]

2017 Pembrokeshire Fireworks Displays

The time has come to wrap up warm, don the woolly hats and head outside to enjoy fantastic fireworks displays in celebration of Bonfire Night. The 5th November has become a national celebration across the UK in remembrance of Guy Fawkes and his infamous Gunpowder Plot of 1605, when he attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament as an act of rebellion against King James I over differences in religious beliefs. Fortunately for King James, the plot was rumbled and the explosion prevented. Unfortunately for Guy Fawkes and his band of rebels, they were tortured and executed for their […]

Festive Holiday Extras

I seem to start this blog in very much the same manner each year, with a statement referencing the approach of Christmas starting earlier each year. And each year, it feels earlier than the last. Yes, whilst all of you have been focussed on settling the little ones back into a school routine, I’ve been busy putting together another great range of Festive Extras to help you embrace the Christmas season which appears to be rapidly approaching. (I appreciate it is still too early for Christmas jumpers and jingle bells however!) So what Festive Packages have we got on offer […]

National Spa Week 2017

National Spa Week runs this year between the 30th October and the 5th November. Established by the UK Spa Association, the campaign has been designed to promote the use of spas and raise awareness of the many benefits of using spas regularly. Nowadays, many of us seem to live rather hectic lives. Between our jobs, social lives and social media, it can often feel like there aren’t quite enough hours in the day to balance all aspects of life comfortably. Hence the thinking behind National Spa Week. In recent years, studies have proven that the stresses of everyday life can […]

World Space Week 2017

From 4th October, people across the world will be celebrating World Space Week. The campaign, first founded in 1999, is run by the World Space Week Association (WSWA) and co-ordinated by the United Nations which helps spread it across the world. In its run of 17 years, World Space Week has become the world’s largest annual space event. The aim of World Space Week is simple; to excite and educate people from all ends of the earth about the benefits we can receive from space.  “The General Assembly declares 4 to 10 October World Space Week to celebrate each year at […]

Pembrokeshire’s Autumn Attractions

Some of Pembrokeshire’s most popular attractions are our beautiful beaches. Visitors come from all over to explore our sandy shores; bringing with them buckets and spades, surfboards and wetsuits, picnics and beach-side games. Understandably then, the summer is a favourite time of year to visit. Everyone wants to make the most of the long sunny days and the warmer weather so it’s only natural we see a noticeable influx of people. But I’ll let you in on a little secret. As much as we locals love the summer, we adore the remaining three seasons just as much. After all, when […]

Countdown to the lift of dog restrictions

Some of you reading this may be experiencing some post-summer holiday blues, but the arrival of the winter months doesn’t have everyone reaching for next year’s calendar to plan the next summer holiday. No in fact, I think it’s safe to say that the 1st September kicks off a much anticipated countdown. I am of course referring to dog owners and their beloved furry friends who will soon be able to roam free on any beach they wish when the dog restrictions are lifted come October 1st. Each year a select few Pembrokeshire beaches impose restrictions during the summer months […]
