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 […]

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 […]

Stay at Newfoundland, St Ishmaels (33418)

Pembrokeshire has been put on the map for its 186 miles of beautiful coastal path, stunning beaches and coves, as well as a handful of interesting islands off the shores. There is certainly a lot to explore along the Pembrokeshire coast! Why not take a step back from the sea shore and discover what is known as Pembrokeshire’s “Secret Waterway” – The Cleddau Estuary?  Running through the county from Milford Haven to Haverfordwest the beautiful waterway is largely hidden from the rest of the world. Follow the course of the estuary and you’ll be met with numerous peaceful and picturesque viewpoints. Join the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Book a Pembrokeshire Photo Shoot!

As part of the Concierge Team here at Coastal Cottages, I’m always keeping an eye out for fantastic new ideas to add to our growing list of holiday extras. In the past few years, we’ve brought on board a number of packages which have come to be firm favourites, so much so that it’s hard to imagine a time where we weren’t offering them. With each and every new package we set up, we do so with our guests at the forefront of our minds. There are many things we look for when setting up new packages, but one of […]

Cariad Y Mor – The perfect sea side stay.

I bet you’ve already heard that retreating from the big city lights to a sea side escape is good for you? And that its been proven that breathing in clean sea air, eating fresh fish and cliff top trundles are all good for the body and soul? However, did you know that scientists have now further verified that there is a clear correlation between living by the coast and reduced stress levels, and that swimming in the sea not only hydrates skin, it also enhances the immune system and boosts circulation, as the magnesium in the seawater has been shown […]
