Stay near Pembrokeshire Film Locations

Now that you have read my last blog all about how Pembrokeshire has played its own part in some of the most popular films and television programmes of recent years, it felt wrong to write about anything other than where you can stay to be near where the action happened! Yes, we’ve handpicked our very own selection of cottages where you can stay – all of which are nearby to the Pembrokeshire locations which you can spot on the silver screen! If you’re envious of the views of Pembroke Castle seen in Me Before You, then look no further than […]

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 […]

Dreaming of Summer Sunshine…

January is the Monday morning of the months; the festivities of Christmas have come to an abrupt end with the start of a new working year, the nights sometimes seem everlasting, and the weather can be less than cheerful. It’s no wonder than many of us start looking ahead to the warmer months for motivation to help get through this month-long Monday morning. And what better motivation than thoughts of a summer spent in Pembrokeshire with warm days, summer sunshine and sand between the toes? Pembrokeshire is the perfect place for a summer holiday with over 40 beaches to choose […]

Christmas in Pembrokeshire, 2016

With just one more week before the big day arrives, now is a great time to start planning that social calendar of yours. We all know the difficulties of Christmas lie not just in the perfect cooking of the turkey or finding that ideal Christmas present, but also in working out when you can catch up with all your loved ones. By now, you probably have a good idea of where you’re spending the big day and who with. Perhaps the extended family are coming round, or maybe you’re having a quiet one this year? Whatever you’re doing on the 25th, its […]

Holiday Cottages with Hot Tubs

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. It’s impossible to discuss holiday cottages with hot tubs without mentioning Atlantic Sunset [32880]. Situated atop the headland at Little Haven, Atlantic Sunset boasts truly unforgettable views across St Brides Bay. This luxurious five star property […]

If you’re anything like me, any spare moments are now occupied with mentally planning what to buy for everyone.

Where to eat Seafood in Pembrokeshire?

In honour of Seafood Week, there is only one topic appropriate for this week’s blog and that is of course, seafood! Here in Pembrokeshire, we have an abundance of fresh local seafood on offer throughout the year, so much so that it’s difficult to find a café, pub or restaurant which doesn’t have local seafood making a regular appearance on the specials board. That being said, it’s very hard to then narrow down our favourite places to “catch” a delicious seafood dish as there are so many! Personally when it comes to seafood, I don’t think you can beat a bag […]
