Guest Blog: Dark Sky Wales

To celebrate the recent launch of our Pembrokeshire Stargazing Experiences, we reached out to our pal Allan at Dark Sky Wales to see if he would share some of his recent experiences with us. Allan and his team have been visiting Pembrokeshire over the past few months, exploring different places of interest and observing the different perspectives of the night sky from across the county. Kindly, Allan put together a little blog for us all about his recent adventures which you can read below! The county of Pembrokeshire offers magnificent scenery and plenty of adventure by day, but have you […]

With over 550 holiday cottages to choose from, it can sometimes be difficult to choose just one for your Pembrokeshire stay and we all know there are lots of factors to be taken into account.

Today, we’re turning our attention to a lovely traditional cottage near Abermawr. Granston House [22553] is a welcoming cottage situated just […]

Coastal Cottages Gift Vouchers

With the month of November well underway now, I’m sure your mind has turned to the thought of Christmas shopping. If you’re anything like me, any spare moments are now occupied with mentally planning what to buy for everyone. Whilst there are some for whom it is easy to buy the perfect gift, there are those who unknowingly cause a conundrum for those attempting to find the right gift. That’s where our Coastal Cottages Gift Vouchers come in. We are all familiar with the struggle of trying to find the perfect gift. Perhaps you’re frustrated with the same old options […]

Pembrokeshire Winter Fairs, 2016

The weeks leading up to Christmas are arguably some of the most exciting of the year, with anticipation for the holiday season gradually building as the weeks pass by. Decorations are starting to appear in shops and people are starting to plan for their Christmas parties. Of course, a huge part of the preparations is the gift shopping. Christmas shopping is much like marmite, some love it and some hate it. Whichever suits you best, I think it is safe to say that facing the high street for a day of Christmas shopping is a daunting task. Here in Pembrokeshire, […]

November 2016’s Supermoon

As you may already be aware, we here at Coastal Cottages have recently launched Stargazing Experiences available through our Concierge service. These experiences consist of an evening spent at your holiday cottage with a professional astronomer, courtesy of our pals at Dark Sky Wales, who will teach you all about the night skies covering constellations and mythologies as well as instructing you how to take your own images and use equipment such as binoculars and telescopes. To read more about the Stargazing Experiences available, click here.  Since launching these experiences, we’ve understandably been paying a little more attention to the […]

Where to eat Seafood in Pembrokeshire?

In honour of Seafood Week, there is only one topic appropriate for this week’s blog and that is of course, seafood! Here in Pembrokeshire, we have an abundance of fresh local seafood on offer throughout the year, so much so that it’s difficult to find a café, pub or restaurant which doesn’t have local seafood making a regular appearance on the specials board. That being said, it’s very hard to then narrow down our favourite places to “catch” a delicious seafood dish as there are so many! Personally when it comes to seafood, I don’t think you can beat a bag […]
