Where to Stay in St Davids

The daffodils are out, spring is in sight and St David’s Day is just around the corner. Now is the time to start planning your visit to the beautiful city that is St Davids. Following up to our guide to All Things St Davids earlier this week, here are some of our picks of cottages to base yourself for your break. Penlan Farmhouse and Penlan Cottage are a pair of semi-detached stone cottages set down a lane on a farm just on the outskirts of St Davids. They have been restored and renovated in such a way that they retain […]

All Things St Davids

St David’s Day means many things in Pembrokeshire. It means kids dressing up, the girls as traditional Welsh women (or ‘flower pot ladies’ as I used to call them as a child, due to the strange hat. Google it and you’ll see why) and boys with flat caps and tank tops. It means cawl served at every pub, more often than not made by the landlady herself. And it means pinning a leek or a daffodil to your chest, or a more recent phenomenon is wearing a daffodil headpiece so you resemble a sort of Celtic Teletubbies sun. These traditions are […]

Why you’ll love Llanunwas

Nestled at the top of Solva is Llanunwas, a large Georgian house which was once part of a country estate dating back over 400 years standing in glorious isolation on the cliffs in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. In more recent years it has become home to seven individual 5 star apartments and two cottages which provide a perfect base for a Pembrokeshire break, whatever your needs. Only 400 yards from the stunning Pembrokeshire Coast Path, they are ideally placed for walking this stretch of coastline. Follow it round to Caerfai Bay and further on to the tiny Cathedral city […]

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 […]

Random Acts of Kindness The Coastal Way

We’ve loved getting involved in Random Acts of Kindness Week this week. It’s the perfect excuse to give a bit back to our guests, the community and of course Pembrokeshire. Lots of ideas were batted around, and we finally settled on three ways to show our appreciation. We started with a beach clean on Newgale beach on Tuesday. We set off with our gloves, bin bags and litter pickers feeling enthusiastic and full of the joys of kindness. We arrived, wrapped up, walked to the top of the pebbles and were met with what looked like a perfectly clean expanse […]

Feb Half Term in Pembrokeshire

It’s hard to believe that the first half term of the year is already upon us. We’ve somehow made it through the long month of January, and the warmer months are well and truly in sight! (For the moment however, it’s still slightly chilly so maybe don’t yet pack away those woolly hats and scarves!) So I hear you ask, what can we get up to in Pembrokeshire this Half Term? Spend the first evening of your half term in the historic town of Pembroke with a Winter Band Night in the Town Hall. From 7pm on the 18th, you […]

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

Over the last week we’ve been releasing a series of videos featuring storytellers from around the county telling some Tales of Pembrokeshire, to coincide with National Storytelling Week and the start of Visit Wales’ Year of Legends. From a strange haunting at Carew Castle, to medieval pirates of Tenby, the legends surrounding Pembrokeshire help to make up the rich story of the county. When visiting Pembrokeshire, it’s tales provide another layer to your stay if you dig a bit deeper into the surrounding area. You never know what you might discover! 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 […]

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 […]
