That being said, it made the perfect sense to launch a brand new experience to add to our incredible list of extras available through our Concierge service – Seafood Cookery Experiences! Our new Seafood Cookery Experiences allow you to dive into a whole new world of culinary skills […]

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 […]

Add a Welsh Hamper to your Stay

With the Six Nations in full swing and St Davids Day just around the corner, we can’t help but get a little extra “Welsh” at this time of year. The desire for a cuppa and a warm Welsh cake grows as the days near spring and we’re anxiously waiting for the day which brings along the first sighting of a daffodil (although I have it on good authority that there are a few of these yellow beauties already visible in Abercastle). This is one of our favourite times of the year to welcome our guests to our little part of […]

Wales’ most romantic time of year

With Valentine’s Day just a month away and the Welsh valentines celebration, St Dwynwen’s Day, taking place on the 25th January, there’s no time of the year more romantic. Both days have their own legends. Saint Dwynwen is remembered for wishing that God would help all future lovers after a love triangle between her, her true love and the man her father had arranged she marry left her heartbroken. There are a number of stories surrounding the history of Valentine but a popular belief is that the he was a Roman priest who helped arrange secret marriages during a period […]
