Exploring North Pembrokeshire with Friends of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park ..

National Walking Day – A day to get outside, leave all phones behind and enjoy the physical benefits of nature! I have been very excited to blog about this day for Coastal Cottages! Living and working in one of Britain’s most beautiful breathing spaces, it only seemed right to get out there and explore part of the stunning National Park that I’m lucky to have on my door step. With 186 miles of gorgeous coastline and National Park I didn’t quite know where to start! Coastal Cottages teamed up with ‘Friends of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park’ (FPCNP) – A […]

A Spotlight in St David’s, Pembrokeshire..

Growing up in Pembrokeshire I have had the pleasure of spending many sunny (and rainy) days in St David’s, each time I return I find another reason as to why I love it even more. When you think of St David’s, i’m sure the St David’s Cathedral (that makes St David’s the smallest city in the world) springs to mind, and there is no doubt that this magnificent Cathedral is a beautiful wonder in its own right! However, this blog is to express there is so much more to St David’s other than it’s beautiful Cathedral. If you want to […]

Mother’s Day – The Coastal Way.

A very Happy Mother’s day to all the super Mums out there! Mother’s Day is the one day of the year we dedicate to that special person that has cut many crusts off sandwiches, tidied messy bedrooms, listened to worries and can solve anything with a great cup of tea. Whether this Mother figure is in fact your Dad, an Auntie, Nan or Sister, these brilliant people who play an important role in our lives deserve a lot of loving this Mother’s Day! While lots of Mum’s all over the world today would have been spoilt with breakfast in bed, […]

Top 5 places for Aternoon Tea In Pembrokeshire..

If there’s something us Brits do well it’s got to be a good afternoon tea! Match a coastal view with those clotted cream and jam scones, or a Georgian manor house set in the middle of rolling green fields with a glass of prosecco and a macaroon.. it becomes hard to beat! With strong opinions voiced in the office of the best afternoon tea locations (yes, we take tea and cake very seriously!)  We eventually managed to narrow it down to our top 5 picks that differ in location, views and those all important finger sandwiches! In no particular order.. […]

The Story Behind St David’s Day..

Every year here in Wales on March the 1st we have the perfect excuse to stock up on Welsh cakes (or we certainly do in the office), pin daffodils to our uniforms, and wave our Welsh flags high – Today we celebrate St. David’s day! The St David’s day celebrations will be in full swing no doubt, with children wearing little welsh costumes to school, parades of proud Welsh folk marching through streets of Wales and of course endless amounts of Cawl! The colorful celebrations showcase that St David’s day plays a very important role in our Welsh culture, yet […]

5 FREE Random Acts Of Kindness You could Try This Week!

One of our favourite weeks to get involved with every year as a company is Random Acts of Kindness week! It’s the perfect way to give a little something back to our guests, the community and of course Pembrokeshire. When we started brain storming lots of wild and wonderful idea’s in the office of how we could make a difference this year, we couldn’t quite put our finger on what we felt was missing – It was the ‘little’ things! Sometimes small random acts of kindness can be overlooked, yet often go the longest way! Simply paying someone a compliment […]
