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.

Pembrokeshire’s Farmers Markets

National Vegetarian Week, a campaign established to celebrate veggies, runs from Monday 15th May until the Sunday 21st this year. The campaign, run by The Vegetarian Society, aims to encourage people to take a step out of their usual routine and go meat-free for the week. But if you’re an avid meat-eater, seven whole days of being meat-free can be somewhat of a challenge. Taking meat off the menu sometime results in the opinion that your meal options become more limited, but that needn’t be the case. Pembrokeshire always has a whole host of delicious produce on offer, a statement […]

National BBQ Month

With longer days and warmer weather, May makes the perfect choice when deciding which month to appoint the title of National BBQ Month, so it really is no wonder that the National Barbecue Association did so! I’m sure you don’t need any further encouragement to get involved but just in case you do, our Barbecue Packages are guaranteed to make a Pembrokeshire barbecue hard to resist this month! The most important thing when planning your barbecue is to make sure you have the best quality meat for everyone to enjoy. Our Barbecue Packs are bursting with local produce courtesy of […]

Pembrokeshire’s Hidden Waterway: The Cleddau Estuary

With three edges of the county, Pembrokeshire is often fondly remembered for its spectacular coastline and beautiful beaches. With 186 miles of coastal path, over 50 beaches and coves, and a handful of interesting islands off the shores, there is certainly a lot to explore along the coast. That being said, it’s important not to overlook the rest of our county. After all, some of our most magnificent attractions are within the county’s rolling countryside. Pentre Ifan in the north is the alleged site of the original Stonehenge bluestones and driving across the Preseli hills between Haverfordwest and Cardigan is […]

Easter Events in Pembrokeshire, 2017

Here in Pembrokeshire, we’ve been spoilt with a couple of sunny weekends recently. Those kind of weekends where you sit at the beach with an ice cream and a friend, making plans and dreaming about the summer. To give you peace of mind, we’re doing our best to keep the sun shining over our beautiful coastline for those of you who are packing your suitcases and loading up your cars in preparation for the Easter holidays. It’s looking bright out there today but fear not, we’re no strangers to breaking out a little sun-dance should the skies cloud over. (Note, […]

If you’re envious of the views of Pembroke Castle seen in Me Before You, then look no further than […]

Pembrokeshire on Film

Pembrokeshire’s literary connections are well known; Dylan Thomas wrote one of his most famous pieces, Under Milkwood, whilst living at his Boathouse in Laugharne and Roald Dahl favoured the seaside town of Tenby for his Easter retreats during his childhood. The county’s connections to the big screen on the other hand, may not be such common knowledge. But it is surprising how many times our western Welsh county has made its appearance in the cinemas, and occasionally on the smaller screen too. Robin Hood filming at Freshwater West For the past twenty years, the world has been obsessed with the […]

National Nutrition Month

We all understand that it is important to live a healthy lifestyle but did you know there is a whole month dedicated to Nutrition? What started as a National Nutrition Week way back in 1973 has grown and developed into a month long campaign which runs annually in March. Run by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, National Nutrition Month aims to raise awareness of the importance of healthy eating habits alongside healthy physical activities. Put Your Best Fork Forward is the main theme for this year’s campaign, encouraging us that we can become healthier with small changes over time. […]
