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 […]

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 […]

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?
