    What to do on Poor Weather Days in Pembrokeshire

    What to do on Poor Weather days in Pembrokeshire through the winter months

    There’s a perception that the weather in Wales is always bad., always raining.
    Even I used to think that, when I worked in my corporate job, so following on here are some of my favourite ideas of things to do on poor weather days in Pembrokeshire.

    Importantly, what I have learned, from taking more notice of our weather, so that I can effectively advise guests, is that, that perception is wrong!

    There are not THAT many days where, when we have ‘poor’ weather, that it’s in for the whole day. The weather does tend to come in and go out with the tides (I’m taking real old wives tales here!) and on bad weather days, that does give you some comfort.

    In fact, it’s quite often true- ‘rain before 7(am), gone by 11(am)’. Guests have thought me a weather witch doctor when I have assured them that would happen on a particular day!

    But, what to do if the weather is bad, and, for this, I am thinking more about the winter months here. If you’re looking for some summer months inspiration then check out my ideas here.

  • Dean - Henry Tudor

    Henry Tudor Lands at Mill Bay

    Henry Tudor landed at Mill Bay on 7th August 1485 (534 years ago). He marched from here to Bosworth to ultimately take the Crown at the Battle of Bosworth from Richard III and this was the start of the Tudor Dynasty. He was only 28!

    We have hosted a lovely gentleman called Dean today who is literally walking in Henry’s footsteps and is making the trek from Mill Bay to Bosworth. He plans to arrive in Bosworth 534 years t the day that Henry arrived. What a fabulous journey to make. He is walking for two purposes, he studied History at Oxford and concluded that Henry VII was our greatest Monarch and having just retired, felt he has both the time and fitness to pay homage to his great achievement. Dean is also Type 1 Diabetic, so his walk will also raise about £2,000 for Diabetes UK-what a great thing to do!

  • Getting a Good Nights sleep

    How to get a good night’s sleep

    How to get a good Night’s Sleep

    Bed and Breakfast…the two things you have to excel at, if you’re looking to run a successful establishment and create a great ambience for your guests. Sleep has so many repercussions into daily life, it’s a massively important topic for me.

    The importance of Sleep

    So, what’s my take on the importance of sleep…

    Having spent a vast amount of time in my previous career travelling and therefore spending many nights in strange beds, I am a keen advocate of getting a good nights sleep.
    And why is this? Well, years ago I noticed quite starkly how a poor night’s sleep impacted on my performance, behaviour and appetite during the following day. This is way before the internet and social media came on the scene. Just saying that is weird now though—can you imagine the world without those two things now??
    Anyway, before the vast amount of information now available to us to advise us how important a good nights sleep is, I had worked it out for myself!

    Skomer Island-Arriving

    Arriving on the Island

    The boat will ferry you to the set down point on the island. Depending on whether the tide is low or high, will dictate how many steps you will have to climb. Once you’re at the top, the island is pretty flat, but to get up to the top there are quite a few steps to negotiate.

    Skomer Island- What’s on the island

    What’s on Skomer?

     

    There is nothing on Skomer as far as cafes, restaurants are concerned. You can buy small bottle water at the starting point and again at the Farmhouse in the middle of the island but that’s it. So, you need to bring with you whatever you would like to eat for the day. You are usually on the island for 5 hours.

  • BOOK DIRECT

    Always get the Best Deal when you Book Direct

    I’m writing this today for a reason.

    Because a lovely, frequent guest made me realise, that although I write often to my guests, to keep them updated on what’s going on here and any offers I have, I have never ACTUALLY pointed out the importance of booking direct through our own website.

    Apologies!

  • Welsh Cakes-THE traditional food of Wales

    Homemade Welsh Cakes

    I love a Welsh Cake! We grew up with them, living in Wales, I guess you would! So, I was surprised to find out, that, outside of Wales, unless you’ve been or have a connection to Wales, that you wouldn’t know what a Welsh Cake was!

    There are many different recipes for Welsh Cake, as it was a family recipe handed down. I always prefer simple, and so I thought I’d share mine with you….
