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.

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 […]

Festive Holiday Extras

Countdown to the lift of dog restrictions

Some of you reading this may be experiencing some post-summer holiday blues, but the arrival of the winter months doesn’t have everyone reaching for next year’s calendar to plan the next summer holiday.

I am of course referring to dog owners and their beloved furry friends who will soon be able to roam free on any beach they wish when the dog restrictions are lifted come October 1st. Each year a select few Pembrokeshire beaches impose restrictions during the summer months […]
