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.

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.
