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 […]

Dog-Friendly Holiday Cottages

It’s often really difficult to find decent holiday accommodation that not only ‘accepts’ dogs, but actively welcomes them.

Feb Half Term in Pembrokeshire

It’s hard to believe that the first half term of the year is already upon us. We’ve somehow made it through the long month of January, and the warmer months are well and truly in sight!

Spend the first evening of your half term in the historic town of Pembroke with a Winter Band Night in the Town Hall. From 7pm on the 18th, you […]

January is the Monday morning of the months; the festivities of Christmas have come to an abrupt end with the start of a new working year, the nights sometimes seem everlasting, and the weather can be less than cheerful.
