Introducing: Easter Extras

I’m not entirely sure how, but the first three months of the year seem to have passed by in a flash and we’re already planning our Easter holidays! Yes the days of hunting for chocolate eggs, hot cross buns as an appropriate breakfast item and spring picnics are nearly upon us. Hard to believe, as it seems that Christmas was here just a moment ago. If you’re struggling to grasp that Easter is just around the corner, we have something which is sure to make it a little easier to accept. Easter holidays in Pembrokeshire, complete with a selection of […]

All Things St Davids

St David’s Day means many things in Pembrokeshire. It means kids dressing up, the girls as traditional Welsh women (or ‘flower pot ladies’ as I used to call them as a child, due to the strange hat. Google it and you’ll see why) and boys with flat caps and tank tops. It means cawl served at every pub, more often than not made by the landlady herself. And it means pinning a leek or a daffodil to your chest, or a more recent phenomenon is wearing a daffodil headpiece so you resemble a sort of Celtic Teletubbies sun. These traditions are […]

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 […]

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 […]

Being surrounded by rolling countryside, a stunning coastline and no hint of city life within miles, Pembrokeshire is ideal for a peaceful, relaxing break away. One of the most popular features that guests ask for when planning the ultimate relaxing break is a hot tub so to help you whittle down the options, we thought we’d highlight some of our favourite cottages with hot tubs.

Pembrokeshire Winter Fairs, 2016

The weeks leading up to Christmas are arguably some of the most exciting of the year, with anticipation for the holiday season gradually building as the weeks pass by. Decorations are starting to appear in shops and people are starting to plan for their Christmas parties. Of course, a huge part of the preparations is the gift shopping. Christmas shopping is much like marmite, some love it and some hate it. Whichever suits you best, I think it is safe to say that facing the high street for a day of Christmas shopping is a daunting task. Here in Pembrokeshire, […]

100 Years of Roald Dahl!

Believe it or not, 2016 celebrates the 100th Anniversary of famous author Roald Dahl’s birth – the writer with an imagination like no other who brought us the tales of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The Twits, James and The Giant Peach and of course, The BFG. Without a doubt, it is easy to spot how one man’s imagination has made such a significant impact on our world today. Roald Dahl was born on 13th September 1916 in the Welsh town of Llandaff, near Cardiff. After early schooling in Llandaff, he was sent to gain a private school education at […]
