I love all things Pembrokeshire and day to day aim to make the most of living in this wild little corner of the world. A passionate foodie, I explore the county based on what places to eat have grabbed my attention!


Where to stay in Marloes

If you read our last blog post then a holiday in Marloes might just have taken your fancy. If that’s the case, here’s a pick of cottages that provide a fantastic base for a holiday in this lovely village! Tucked away in the heart of the village, Carpenters Cottage is a delightful traditional detached stone cottage that is deceptively spacious. It has been in the same family for years and so has been lovingly renovated. The living room  has beautiful exposed stone work and is furnished with a wonderful mix of contemporary and antique pieces. A sunny paved terrace and garden […]

Why Marloes?

If you like your holidays on the relaxed side with access to adventure, then Marloes could be the place for you. It’s a small village settled on high ground in the middle of the Marloes peninsula, which is surrounded by sea to the north, west and south at the southern end of St Brides Bay. This little village may seem sleepy at first glance, but its location makes it a spectacular destination for a holiday, and there are some hidden gems in the village itself.     One of the attractions of Marloes is its proximity to Skomer Island. A five […]

Gardens of Pembrokeshire

When you think Pembrokeshire, what is it that you picture? Is it a beautiful beach like Barafundle or Whitesands? Stunning sea views from the coast path? Fish and chips eaten on a harbour wall? Or is it a wonderful garden filled with flowers, trickling streams and ponds and perhaps surrounded by woodland? If the latter didn’t spring to mind, you could be missing out. As tempting as it is to spend your week in Pembrokeshire sunning yourself on the beach, the county’s warm and (occasionally) wet climate as well as its fertile soils mean that it is home to several gorgeous […]

Get away from it all at Forest View Cottages

Nestled at the base of a wooded valley on the edge of the Brechfa Forest in Carmarthenshire is this cluster of five holiday cottages. Set away from it all in 35 acres of grounds including a 3 acre horseshoe shaped lake, it is a slice of countryside paradise yet the market town of Carmarthen is only a 10 minute drive away should you tire of the greenery! The lake in particular is the perfect picnic spot particularly for bird watchers as kites and buzzards soar overhead, while swans and geese regularly nest on the lake. It’s not just the grounds themselves that make this a great […]

Pig Beach comes to Pembrokeshire!

You may have heard about pigs flying, but what about swimming? A Pembrokeshire beach is set to be home to a group of pigs that need re-homing from a local farm! There are currently two sows living on the beach and from April 1st the rest of the group will gradually be introduced to their new habitat where fresh water sources and shelters have been installed. We’re not allowed to reveal the location of the beach, as it’s important to keep human disturbance to a minimum while the pigs get used to their new home, but the hope is they’ll be […]

Take A Walk In The Park

There are so many things about Pembrokeshire that make life here unique. There’s the beaches that are stunning rain or shine, bustling towns, fabulous restaurants and the perfect surroundings for outdoor activities like kayaking or coasteering. Above all, the thing that draws people back year after year is our breathtaking coastline, and the Pembrokeshire Coast Path that snakes around it. Pembrokeshire is home to the UK’s only coastal National Park, and although we celebrate it by getting out there all year round, today is ‘National Take a Walk in the Park Day’ and so is the perfect excuse to make […]

Where to stay in Amroth

As a follow up to our last blog about how fantastic Amroth is as a holiday destination, here are a pick of properties in Amroth that provide the perfect base for a break, whether it’s a family holiday or a couple’s retreat. For a family, Capel Swn Y Mor was recently included in The Times’ 50 Best Cottages in Britain, and will not disappoint. Meaning ‘Chapel by the Sea,’ this stunning conversion of a Victorian chapel is set right on the seafront with the beach across the road and incredible views over Carmarthen Bay. It has been restored in such […]

Why Amroth?

Amroth is a small village perched on a half mile long stretch of beach, at the start (or end!) of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. With its traditional sea side shops, cafes and pubs it is a busy village that is a brilliant destination whatever your needs. The access to the coast path is perfect for walking couples or singles, while families can spend days playing on the beach. Saundersfoot is a 3 mile coast path walk away, or along the beach at low tide with Tenby a bit further along the coast, meaning that there’s plenty to entertain on cooler […]

Happy Days!

It’s International Day of Happiness today (on a Monday, make of that what you will!) To enter into the spirit of things, we asked the Coastal team what about living in Pembrokeshire makes them happy. From beach days, to bike rides to food, their answers got me so excited for spring! Ruby – ‘Knowing that when I get on my bike, within 25/30 minutes I’m at a beach. There is no better feeling than cycling through Pembrokeshire lanes with fresh country air. Also summer evenings spent BBQ’ing with friends. Sitting listening to the waves. Pembrokeshire in the sun. I could go […]

Dog-Friendly Holiday Cottages

It’s often really difficult to find decent holiday accommodation that not only ‘accepts’ dogs, but actively welcomes them. That’s why we created The Woof Guide, where you can find great dog-friendly accommodation that’s rated according to a unique Paw Rating System that tells you whether it’s best for your dog. Here’s a selection of properties from The Woof Guide that are the perfect base for a holiday your dog would choose. Tucking Cottage in Spittal is a lovely characterful stone cottage that sleeps 2 people with room for 1 dog, and so is perfect for a cosy break. Set within […]
