We’re very excited to announce a brand new property which has recently been added to our portfolio, Llandyfriog just outside Newcastle Emlyn.

This detached property sleeps twelve in five bedrooms, making it the perfect Welsh retreat for the larger family. You can even bring along your four legged friend!

The decking area makes a perfect spot for a bit of alfresco dining on a warm summers evening, or maybe just a relaxing glass of wine after a long day exploring the surrounding market towns.  Even if you decide to stay during the colder months of the year, the spacious open-plan living and dining area means there is plenty of room for all the family. Light the wood burner and gather around on the sofas in front of a good film for the perfect cosy night in.

It’s that time of year again, and thank heavens!

The warmer months are finally on their way (ignoring the water pouring from the sky as I write this!) and so, comes the season of sunshine. And what does sunshine mean?

Barbecues!

I don’t know about you, but one of my favourite forms of alfresco dining is barbecuing! What I love most about barbecues, is that there’s absolutely no pressure at all. It doesn’t matter how many people attend, there is always a sense of freedom and fun – maybe that comes with eating outdoors, who knows?!

For me, barbecues are all about getting a few friends together, everyone pitching in to buy sausages and the like, and relaxing with a drink or two. And the greatest thing is? You can plan a barbecue in a matter of minutes, so it’s the perfect idea when making last minute plans.

We’re all trying to watch the pennies here and there, and with school holidays, I understand that it can prove all too difficult to keep occupied but not spend an absolute fortune. Particularly when you have active children.

I myself don’t have children, but it’s not too long ago that I was a student so I totally understand the tricky balance between having fun and saving money.

Many make the mistake of thinking you can’t do both. But here in Pembrokeshire, there really is an abundance of things to do throughout the county, which you can do for little or no money.

There really is no need to live like a hermit. Although this may sometimes seem like the only answer!

Go look for hermit crabs instead!

Isn’t Easter a magical time of year?

It’s basically a hint at what we’re all looking forward to, the summer. With the clocks recently changing, the evenings are getting lighter which means the days are feeling longer. The sun is out that little bit more teasing us with warmer weather, leaving us all digging out our sunglasses and putting our umbrellas back into hibernation. (If only! We all know summer in Wales doesn’t guarantee sunshine and warmth!)

But springtime should be celebrated in its own right. After all, it is the best of both worlds. Sunny days allow for leaving the house without a coat, which is a welcomed opportunity after the bitterness of the cold winter. But the evenings still have a chill, meaning it’s still okay to get home from work and curl up with a blanket and a book!

And of course, spring is the season of Easter.

Mothering Sunday…

Often confused with the Mother’s Day celebration in America, which is of entirely different origins, this coming Sunday sees us Brits honour our mothers.

Tradition claims that Mothering Sunday was first established to allow working children a day off from their working lives, and encourage them to visit and spend the day with their families. Way back when, children would leave their families and work as domestic servants instead. The mothering part to the day, it is said, comes from a religious encouragement to visit the church they attended whilst growing up – the church taking on the role of the “mother church” in this instance.

Nowadays, Mothering Sunday is more often known as Mother’s Day, and we Brits celebrate by showering our mothers with affections. Flowers, Sunday lunch, chocolates and champagne are among the [...]
