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 […]

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 […]

Go Stargazing in Pembrokeshire

In recent years, Pembrokeshire has become a favourite for those wanting to explore the night’s skies. A number of Dark Skies Discovery Sites have even been appointed throughout the county, recognising locations across Pembrokeshire as recommended spots in the UK for stargazing. We locals have probably all been guilty at one time or another of taking our starry nights for granted, but many a time the breath-taking view has made me stop in my tracks, when I remember to look up that is. After all, there is something beautifully calming and peaceful about looking to the stars. For those of […]

Stay at Pebbles, Saundersfoot

Having grown up in Pembrokeshire, my childhood memories of summer are filled with days spent building sandcastles and splashing in the shores of our sandy beaches. Living here, the beach has never been far away, so when I’m asked to give advice about things to do and where to say, I’m often drawn to those closest to the coast. That being said, it’s no wonder that Pebbles in Saundersfoot has caught my eye. Sleeping up to six, Pebbles (Property Ref: 43340) is a three bedroom semi-detached house just a short walk from Saundersfoot’s picturesque harbour and sandy beach. Situated above […]

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 […]
