Stay at a gorgeous Farmhouse Cottage, The Leat…

Walking through the doors of The Leat, nr Whitesands I received the warmest welcome with everything I imagined and more. Approaching the cottage in it’s stunning rural surroundings, the traditional stoned walls slightly gave away that it may have a farmhouse interior décor inside (and the fact that’s it’s a converted barn!) Sleeping 4 in 2 bedrooms and welcoming 2 pets, I was excited to explore the cottage further to discover what gives The Leat its unique charm and character. Well there was certainly no shortage of farmhouse charm.  Traditional beams, white washed stoned walls, pastel painted furniture and pretty […]

Top 6 Ice Cream spots in Pembrokeshire

With the prestigious blue flag waving across 12 of our Pembrokeshire beaches, I have no doubt in saying that locally produced Pembrokeshire ice cream is pretty spot on. Whether it’s the enjoyment of sitting on a beach with an amazing view, […]

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 […]
