Say “Happy Mother’s Day” with Coastal Cottages

It’s now just over a month until Mother’s Day, a day dedicated to giving thanks to our mums and showing them just how much we care. With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it can be easy to forget to tell those we love them exactly how we feel. We are easily distracted by life… by our jobs, by housework, by celebrity culture and largely by screens. But it’s important to remember those around you, those who play a special role in your life and without whom, life just wouldn’t be the same. Mother’s Day, which falls on Sunday […]

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 […]

Restaurants in Pembrokeshire with something a little different!

As well as award winning beaches, stunning coast path walks and historic landmarks, Pembrokeshire is also home to some of the best places to eat in the UK. Coastal Cottages is a company full of foodies, and so we often blog about the latest life-changing meal we’ve had that week, from the steak at The Cwtch in St Davids, or the curry at The Royal Oak in Newport. This time I’m focusing on some restaurants in the area that provide that something that’s a bit different, that will make you remember that one place on your holiday that made you […]

Coastal Cottages Gift Vouchers

With the month of November well underway now, I’m sure your mind has turned to the thought of Christmas shopping. If you’re anything like me, any spare moments are now occupied with mentally planning what to buy for everyone. Whilst there are some for whom it is easy to buy the perfect gift, there are those who unknowingly cause a conundrum for those attempting to find the right gift. That’s where our Coastal Cottages Gift Vouchers come in. We are all familiar with the struggle of trying to find the perfect gift. Perhaps you’re frustrated with the same old options […]

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, […]

Where to eat Seafood in Pembrokeshire?

In honour of Seafood Week, there is only one topic appropriate for this week’s blog and that is of course, seafood! Here in Pembrokeshire, we have an abundance of fresh local seafood on offer throughout the year, so much so that it’s difficult to find a café, pub or restaurant which doesn’t have local seafood making a regular appearance on the specials board. That being said, it’s very hard to then narrow down our favourite places to “catch” a delicious seafood dish as there are so many! Personally when it comes to seafood, I don’t think you can beat a bag […]

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 […]
