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.

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.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
