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 […]

Stay in amongst the Tales of Pembrokeshire

Having watched the videos and heard the tales, here […]

Have a Hygge Valentine’s Day

Whenever someone mentions Valentine’s Day, it makes me cower slightly. I imagine a meal in a crowded restaurant with heart shaped everything, sitting across from my boyfriend who is hating every second and being acutely aware of how much more money I’m paying for the Lovers’ Set Menu over the burger that I usually go for. It’s making me break out in a sweat just thinking about it. This year, I’m forgoing the forced fun, the social media battle to see whose boyfriend bought them the biggest teddy bear, the silent struggle not to mention the fact that I saw […]

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.

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 […]

Ty Uchaf Mill, Pwllderi 20295

Like many of you out there, I’ve been experiencing some slight jealousy towards all those out enjoying the beautiful weather whilst I sit at my desk writing this blog. The sun has been shining quite gloriously in the Pembrokeshire skies this last week, and so it’s only natural to want to make the most of it!  (I’m choosing to ignore the short period of drizzle we had this morning…) View from Garn Fawr But, rumour has it that this weather is due to stick around for a little while (fingers crossed!) and so there is still time to plan a little last-minute […]

West Grove Barns: A Cluster

Sometimes you want to go on holiday for a retreat from everyday life. You want a cosy cottage on the edge of the map where you’ll have no mobile signal and the only sound you’ll hear for miles is birds singing or sheep bleating. Sometimes though, you want to get a nice crowd of your closest loved ones together and share the holiday of a lifetime. Perhaps as a celebration for a big birthday or anniversary, or maybe simply because you haven’t seen everyone in a while. But, as much as you want to get everyone together, the thought of […]

World Book Day: Pembrokeshire’s Links to Famous Authors

I am a proud bookworm and World Book Day was always one of my favourite celebrations as a child. This year World Book Day falls on the 3rd March, and it has me thinking about all the authors who once found their creative brilliance buried deep within the Pembrokeshire countryside. When you think about it, it really is no surprise to learn that Pembrokeshire has been the inspiration to many an author. I think we can all agree that there is a sense of magic and adventure throughout the county; the rolling hills are waiting to be explored, the beaches (ahem, Barafundle […]
