Where to stay in Amroth

As a follow up to our last blog about how fantastic Amroth is as a holiday destination, here are a pick of properties in Amroth that provide the perfect base for a break, whether it’s a family holiday or a couple’s retreat. For a family, Capel Swn Y Mor was recently included in The Times’ 50 Best Cottages in Britain, and will not disappoint. Meaning ‘Chapel by the Sea,’ this stunning conversion of a Victorian chapel is set right on the seafront with the beach across the road and incredible views over Carmarthen Bay. It has been restored in such […]

Why Amroth?

Amroth is a small village perched on a half mile long stretch of beach, at the start (or end!) of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. With its traditional sea side shops, cafes and pubs it is a busy village that is a brilliant destination whatever your needs. The access to the coast path is perfect for walking couples or singles, while families can spend days playing on the beach. Saundersfoot is a 3 mile coast path walk away, or along the beach at low tide with Tenby a bit further along the coast, meaning that there’s plenty to entertain on cooler […]

Pembrokeshire on Film

Pembrokeshire’s literary connections are well known; Dylan Thomas wrote one of his most famous pieces, Under Milkwood, whilst living at his Boathouse in Laugharne and Roald Dahl favoured the seaside town of Tenby for his Easter retreats during his childhood. The county’s connections to the big screen on the other hand, may not be such common knowledge. But it is surprising how many times our western Welsh county has made its appearance in the cinemas, and occasionally on the smaller screen too. Robin Hood filming at Freshwater West For the past twenty years, the world has been obsessed with the […]

Happy Days!

It’s International Day of Happiness today (on a Monday, make of that what you will!) To enter into the spirit of things, we asked the Coastal team what about living in Pembrokeshire makes them happy. From beach days, to bike rides to food, their answers got me so excited for spring! Ruby – ‘Knowing that when I get on my bike, within 25/30 minutes I’m at a beach. There is no better feeling than cycling through Pembrokeshire lanes with fresh country air. Also summer evenings spent BBQ’ing with friends. Sitting listening to the waves. Pembrokeshire in the sun. I could go […]

National Nutrition Month

We all understand that it is important to live a healthy lifestyle but did you know there is a whole month dedicated to Nutrition?

Run by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, National Nutrition Month aims to raise awareness of the importance of healthy eating habits alongside healthy physical activities. Put Your Best Fork Forward is the main theme for this year’s campaign, encouraging us that we can become healthier with small changes over time. […]

Dog-Friendly Holiday Cottages

It’s often really difficult to find decent holiday accommodation that not only ‘accepts’ dogs, but actively welcomes them. That’s why we created The Woof Guide, where you can find great dog-friendly accommodation that’s rated according to a unique Paw Rating System that tells you whether it’s best for your dog. Here’s a selection of properties from The Woof Guide that are the perfect base for a holiday your dog would choose. Tucking Cottage in Spittal is a lovely characterful stone cottage that sleeps 2 people with room for 1 dog, and so is perfect for a cosy break. Set within […]

Val’s Welsh Lasagne
