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 […]

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 […]

Christmas in Pembrokeshire, 2016

With just one more week before the big day arrives, now is a great time to start planning that social calendar of yours. We all know the difficulties of Christmas lie not just in the perfect cooking of the turkey or finding that ideal Christmas present, but also in working out when you can catch up with all your loved ones. By now, you probably have a good idea of where you’re spending the big day and who with. Perhaps the extended family are coming round, or maybe you’re having a quiet one this year? Whatever you’re doing on the 25th, its […]
