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 […]

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! (For the moment however, it’s still slightly chilly so maybe don’t yet pack away those woolly hats and scarves!) So I hear you ask, what can we get up to in Pembrokeshire this Half Term? 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 […]

Dreaming of Summer Sunshine…

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. It’s no wonder than many of us start looking ahead to the warmer months for motivation to help get through this month-long Monday morning. And what better motivation than thoughts of a summer spent in Pembrokeshire with warm days, summer sunshine and sand between the toes? Pembrokeshire is the perfect place for a summer holiday with over 40 beaches to choose […]

Christmas in Pembrokeshire, 2016

With just one more week before the big day arrives, now is a great time to start planning that social calendar of yours. We all know the difficulties of Christmas lie not just in the perfect cooking of the turkey or finding that ideal Christmas present, but also in working out when you can catch up with all your loved ones. By now, you probably have a good idea of where you’re spending the big day and who with. Perhaps the extended family are coming round, or maybe you’re having a quiet one this year? Whatever you’re doing on the 25th, its […]

Guest Blog: Dark Sky Wales

To celebrate the recent launch of our Pembrokeshire Stargazing Experiences, we reached out to our pal Allan at Dark Sky Wales to see if he would share some of his recent experiences with us.

Kindly, Allan put together a little blog for us all about his recent adventures which you can read below! The county of Pembrokeshire offers magnificent scenery and plenty of adventure by day, but have you […]

Pembrokeshire Winter Fairs, 2016

The weeks leading up to Christmas are arguably some of the most exciting of the year, with anticipation for the holiday season gradually building as the weeks pass by. Decorations are starting to appear in shops and people are starting to plan for their Christmas parties. Of course, a huge part of the preparations is the gift shopping. Christmas shopping is much like marmite, some love it and some hate it. Whichever suits you best, I think it is safe to say that facing the high street for a day of Christmas shopping is a daunting task. Here in Pembrokeshire, […]

November 2016’s Supermoon

As you may already be aware, we here at Coastal Cottages have recently launched Stargazing Experiences available through our Concierge service. These experiences consist of an evening spent at your holiday cottage with a professional astronomer, courtesy of our pals at Dark Sky Wales, who will teach you all about the night skies covering constellations and mythologies as well as instructing you how to take your own images and use equipment such as binoculars and telescopes. To read more about the Stargazing Experiences available, click here.  Since launching these experiences, we’ve understandably been paying a little more attention to the […]

I know many of you are probably more concerned with Half Term and planning Christmas but with the recent launch of our 2017 brochure, we can’t help but get excited about the great events which will be returning to the county next year! Each year there are a number of annual events which take place all around the county, along with an abundance of seasonal celebrations which often pop up with little warning! 2013’s Really Wild Food Festival A firm favourite for all is the Pembrokeshire County Show which takes place every August, next year running from the 15th to […]

October Half Term 2016

Nearing the end of September, the summer is most certainly over and the autumn upon us! The days are becoming gradually colder and the evenings are turning darker earlier, so naturally our thoughts turn to the next school holidays, October Half Term! With October Half Term comes Halloween celebrations and even one or two early Bonfire Night celebrations with some fireworks displays! It may no longer be summer, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of events going on around the county for all the family to get involved with! A firm favourite year after year is the Saundersfoot Big […]
