Stay near Pembrokeshire Film Locations

Now that you have read my last blog all about how Pembrokeshire has played its own part in some of the most popular films and television programmes of recent years, it felt wrong to write about anything other than where you can stay to be near where the action happened! Yes, we’ve handpicked our very own selection of cottages where you can stay – all of which are nearby to the Pembrokeshire locations which you can spot on the silver screen! If you’re envious of the views of Pembroke Castle seen in Me Before You, then look no further than […]

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 […]

National Nutrition Month

We all understand that it is important to live a healthy lifestyle but did you know there is a whole month dedicated to Nutrition? What started as a National Nutrition Week way back in 1973 has grown and developed into a month long campaign which runs annually in March. Run by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, National Nutrition Month aims to raise awareness of the importance of healthy eating habits alongside healthy physical activities. Put Your Best Fork Forward is the main theme for this year’s campaign, encouraging us that we can become healthier with small changes over time. […]

Where to Stay in St Davids

The daffodils are out, spring is in sight and St David’s Day is just around the corner. Now is the time to start planning your visit to the beautiful city that is St Davids. Following up to our guide to All Things St Davids earlier this week, here are some of our picks of cottages to base yourself for your break. Penlan Farmhouse and Penlan Cottage are a pair of semi-detached stone cottages set down a lane on a farm just on the outskirts of St Davids. They have been restored and renovated in such a way that they retain […]

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 […]

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 […]

Pre and Post Wedding Getaways

Romance is well and truly in the air. St Dwynwen’s Day (the day the Welsh celebrate Valentines) has just passed on the 25th January, Valentines Day is just around the corner on the 14th and we’ll be making an appearance exhibiting at Celtic Manor’s Wedding Fayre this Sunday, the 12th February. And so, it would be inappropriate for today’s blog topic to be about anything other than romantic getaways. Pembrokeshire is the perfect place to escape to with your loved one. Just think long walks hand in hand along sandy beaches, delicious meals at romantic restaurants by the sea, and cosy […]

Have a Hygge Valentine’s Day

Whenever someone mentions Valentine’s Day, it makes me cower slightly. I imagine a meal in a crowded restaurant with heart shaped everything, sitting across from my boyfriend who is hating every second and being acutely aware of how much more money I’m paying for the Lovers’ Set Menu over the burger that I usually go for. It’s making me break out in a sweat just thinking about it. This year, I’m forgoing the forced fun, the social media battle to see whose boyfriend bought them the biggest teddy bear, the silent struggle not to mention the fact that I saw […]

New Year Resolutions

With the turn of the New Year, it’s natural to start thinking about the next twelve months ahead. It’s safe to say that we all tend to look upon the New Year as a chance to wipe the slate clean and start again. This fresh outlook on the future encourages many to create New Year’s Resolutions, such as aiming to live a healthier life after all that indulgent eating and drinking over the Christmas festivities. Now I know you might be thinking that it’s a little late to be thinking about the New Year and setting yourself a resolution, but […]
