Because if people living, working and playing in Pembrokeshire don’t love it, then there is a problem. It is important to us all in Pembrokeshire that we help to look after and sustain our beautiful coastline, which is why we are delighted to continue supporting local producers and organisations.

The Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum is going to be a big part of our green future, they are an independent voluntary body, working together for our Pembrokeshire Coasts future.

We are also delighted to be supporting the Pembrokeshire Beach Food Company, who are very passionate about protecting Pembrokeshire’s seas and coastline and work alongside the Marine Conservation Society, helping to improve the conditions of these environments.

Through our Concierge service, we are promoting two of the Pembrokeshire Beach Food Company’s seashore condiments; the Welshman’s Caviar and Ship’s Biscuits as part of our Taste of Pembrokeshire hamper.

I am pretty sure that each and every one of us loves Easter. It is the best time to get all of the family together, embrace the evenings drawing out and most importantly needing no excuse to eat an endless supply of scrumptious chocolate.

Easter is the beginning of the holiday season for many, with the activities, attractions and places to visit opening their doors with open arms to welcome an array of visitors after a sometimes long, quiet winter. Easter is like a little ray of sunshine with the backdrop of sleepy flowers raising their pretty, colourful heads.

I have the biggest smile and have the feeling of a huge warm cuddle just thinking about it!

If you are feeling the same, then you need to think of no other reason than the comforting buzz of Easter itself to bring your family to Pembrokeshire and spend some quality, much needed time with everybody together (eating chocolate).

Across our wide range of stunning holiday properties, we have egg-cellent (sorry!) [...]

Since becoming a Mum myself, I have grown quite fond of Mother’s Day! This will be my second year as a Mum, but I also recognise how important it is that I don’t forget about my Mum too.

I know it is said by many (including myself), that you shouldn’t just show appreciation of your Mum on one day a year and it is another reason for places to cash in, but I don’t think that celebrating Mother’s Day is necessarily a (complete) money spinner. Having a dedicated day for Mum’s simply provides you with the opportunity to make an extra special effort to spoil your Mum, who I believe is your best friend. It isn’t so much about who buys the biggest bouquet or spends the most on Sunday Lunch, for me it is all about the feeling and the experience of love from your children.

At Coastal Cottages we are very much about the complete holiday experience and the feeling you get when staying in one of our properties in Pembrokeshire. That is why this [...]

The weather is absolutely stunning in Pembrokeshire at the moment and I am happy to say that it is with us for a little while yet.

The sunshine makes everything look simply sublime and I am very happy to have the many wonders of Pembrokeshire right on my doorstep to enjoy.

Being an early bird, I am always up at the crack of dawn pottering about before my little one wakes up. I like to think that I embrace each season, even when the Winter brings the dark mornings and evenings. Admittedly though, I am very happy to now be waking up to daylight and being able to be outside tottering in the garden past 4pm!

It is great to see the ground starting to dry up too, it has been so sodden with puddles the grass had disappeared.

Our new found hobby is feeding the resident swans at Carew Castle and Tidal Mill. We have named them Sedrick and Sally. We are very lucky to have this as our daily walk, though each time we now get to the bridge, we have two swans making a beeline [...]

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, [...]
