To celebrate St David’s Day, on Saturday 1st March the National Botanic Gardens of Wales are giving FREE entry to all.
You can visit the gardens between 10am and 4.30pm, with the last entry at 3.30pm.
I am confident that our slightly wet and unpredictable Winter is behind us, making the sight of Spring overwhelmingly refreshing. This solely being a great reason to visit the gardens on St David’s Day and admire nature and Welsh culture at it’s best.
In addition to the marvel of the gardens itself, there is an array of happenings taking place to accentuate this stunning attraction.
Enjoy a host of crafts on display and for sale, local food and drink to sample and buy, along with feel good music and dancing. There is a selection of fun filled activities for the family and free guided tours, along with the stunning scene of daffodils and spring flowers on display in the glass house.
The restaurant is reflecting all things Welsh too, [...]Read More »
For many this will be the first family holiday of the year, so I thought that it is important for you to be aware of all the lovely things that are available for you to enjoy during your stay in Pembrokeshire.
The weeks are flying by at the moment, it is so true when people say things like ‘time goes faster as you get older’, or ‘make the most of your little one as they grow up so quickly’! Time stands still for no man, which is why it is so important to live for the moment and make the most of every day, especially whilst you are on holiday!
Whether it is dodging the showers in your rain coat and boots, wrapping up in your gloves and hats with a shiny red nose, being blown across the beaches by an infrequent gust, your time in Pembrokeshire is guaranteed to be full of interesting experiences! For that reason, pack your suitcases in anticipation of all weathers.
I spend a lot of time walking my boys around Carew Castle and Tidal Mill, but [...]Read More »
Once the Christmas and New Year buzz has passed, if you are anything like me, you are ready for the next date in the calendar to get excited about. Like it or not, it’s Valentines Day.
Although I am not one for romance I will still make an effort to mark the occasion in whichever way I see fit. I know plenty of people that love nothing more than an excuse to wine and dine in fine restaurants and we do have plenty in Pembrokeshire that will happily welcome you to treat your loved ones this year.
The cosy restaurant at the Plantagenet in Tenby oozes romance, with it’s candlelit charm and unusual decor. Voted one of the top 25 restaurants in Wales by the Western Mail, it truly is a marvel hidden away on Quay Hill in the centre of the harbour town of Tenby.
The Mermaid on the Strand is very popular as it overlooks the stunning Saundersfoot Bay. To accentuate romance, they have created a special 2 and 3 course Valentine’s menu, with a complimentary glass [...]Read More »
Where are the ice cold, frosty mornings with the sun beaming and sharp blue skies?
Only one morning have we had a relatively nippy morning with a crunchy frost on the ground, which evidently turned into rain later in the day. Discussions have began in the office as to whether we need to start building an ark.
If my memory serves me correctly, this time last year was gorgeous. We had many walks around the lily ponds at Bosherston, the beaches at Tenby, Carew Mill and the cycle network on Neyland Marina. At the moment it is a case of spotting a dry spell amongst the clouds, grabbing our coats and getting out there, if only for half an hour.
It is a shame as I am a massive fan of this time of the year. There is something special about a clear crisp day in January, a certain air for new beginnings is apparent. Everyone feels so enthused for a brand new year of exploring the outdoors and enjoying each experience.
Wherever you are Mr Frost, please pop to Pembrokeshire [...]Read More »
