2019 Events with Friends of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park

Here at Coastal Cottages, our coastline is understandably a huge part of who we are. Each and every one of our staff members have lived, breathed and grown up in Pembrokeshire and now we’re all working here to help share our passion for our county with those of you who maybe don’t live here, but love it just as much as those of us who do. That’s why we’ve teamed up with local independent charity Friends of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park (FPCNP). This organisation was founded in 1991 and works hard to look after our National Park. Through various […]

Book your stay in Whitewell, St Davids

St Davids is without doubt, one of Pembrokeshire most beloved holiday destinations. If you’re already familiar with the city, you’ll understand exactly its appeal. If you’re a newcomer, you’re guaranteed to have fallen in love with this enchanting locale by the end of your visit. If you’re a regular to the bigger cities such as London and Manchester, you may be surprised upon your arrival to St Davids. Somewhat village-like in size, this place is bestowed the title of being Britain’s smallest city, but don’t let that put you off. Quite contradictory in fact, that’s a fact that only adds […]

Exploring North Pembrokeshire with Friends of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park ..

National Walking Day – A day to get outside, leave all phones behind and enjoy the physical benefits of nature! I have been very excited to blog about this day for Coastal Cottages! Living and working in one of Britain’s most beautiful breathing spaces, it only seemed right to get out there and explore part of the stunning National Park that I’m lucky to have on my door step. With 186 miles of gorgeous coastline and National Park I didn’t quite know where to start! Coastal Cottages teamed up with ‘Friends of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park’ (FPCNP) – A […]

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 […]

Head to Tenby’s Tudor Merchant House and take part in a historical hunt searching for Eggs whilst discovering a fascinating insight into Tudor times. This event runs from the 30th March […]

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 […]
