The sun has got his hat on in Pembrokeshire today and here in the office we are loving every second of it! Last night my boyfriend and I treated ourselves to a bag of chips on the seafront in Tenby and walked Reggie the entire length of the South beach. The summer dog restrictions are in full swing now and I am already noticing a big increase in the amount of furry traffic in the dog friendly areas! In my opinion, where a sandy stroll is always guaranteed to satisfy, the summer months in Pembrokeshire could be the perfect opportunity to delve further into the natural attractions that our beautiful county has to offer!
As a by-product of living in the South of Pembrokeshire for the last 24 years, I can confidently say that there is very little ground left for me to cover, so recently I have been exploring the north of the county on my days off. Reggie thinks that all his Christmases’ have come at once – we have discovered tha [...]Read More »
There are different types of beach lovers that holiday in Pembrokeshire. The first are the sun worshippers who cannot wait to put on their bikinis, roll out their towels and relax all day on the warm golden sand. The second are more like me, we love the beach just as much (possibly even more!!) but a great day out cannot possibly be that great unless the dog can come too! Don’t get me wrong, when we do see the sun I am first out on the beach trying to get that sun kissed summer glow, but I can guarantee that any sunbathing that I do will be cut short by an unexpected cuddle from a very happy, dripping wet and sand covered Reggie!
From the 1st May until the 30th September every year rules for dog owners are enforced to ensure that everybody can come to Pembrokeshire and have the dream holiday that they have been waiting for all year. But I’ll let you in on a little secret – the ‘dreaded’ dog restriction is not half as bad as it sounds!

We often get asked recommendations on where to eat in Pembrokeshire so I thought; why not write a blog on it!
It was my birthday last month and I like my food, so I use my ‘birthday week’ as an excuse to cram in as many meals out as possible, I managed 5 this year! They were: Carbone Grill and Bar – Haverfordwest, Taj Mahal Indian Restaurant – Haverfordwest, The South Beach Bar and Grill – Tenby, Sands Cafe in Newgale and The Cambrian Inn – Solva.
My week in food:
On the Monday I went to the Carbone Grill and Bar in Haverfordwest for dinner with some friends. This is a newly opened restaurant which is doing pretty well. They do European, Italian and Mediterranean dishes in the restaurant downstairs and have a wine bar upstairs. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is very reasonably priced. I had garlic bread to start, followed by a pasta dish with chicken and pancetta and of course chocolate ice [...]Read More »
After what feels to me like forever, we can finally see the end to the long nights and short days. That’s right – Spring is here! With only 7 days to go until the clocks jump forward, I am sure I am not the only one who is looking forward to the later evenings and the warmer weather!
On a fresh spring morning, one of my favourite things to do is to dig out my wellies and take Reggie for a long walk along Freshwater East Beach. Situated just 3 miles out of Pembroke along South Pembrokeshire’s ‘heritage coast’, the bay is wide and golden, surrounded by dramatic cliff edges and sand dunes. Being dog friendly all year round and sheltered by its surroundings, come rain or shine, you can guarantee a refreshing and enjoyable walk – whatever the weather! This is definitely one of Reggie’s favourites – he just loves to play ‘Fetch’ in the tide and run up and down the sand dunes!
If, like mine, your dog is full of [...]Read More »
