    When to visit Pembrokeshire?

    When to visit Pembrokeshire?

    Well, that’s a question.

    I love the seasons, I love to see the changes and I look forward to certain things happening at certain times of the year.

    As I write this(February) I have already enjoyed watching the first snowdrops appear-there are certain places in Pembrokeshire where you will have a wall of snowdrops and I do love to go visit these.

    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.

  • Love Hearts

    Valentine’s Day

    Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s day, February 14th is a day for celebrating love in many parts of the world. Originating as a Western Christian Feast day, although it is not a public holiday in any country, it is widely celebrated linked with romance and love.

    Many stories of martyrdom are associated with ‘Valentine’s’ through time, one being a Saint Valentine of Rome, who was imprisoned for marrying Roman Soldiers forbidden to marry, and according to legend, during his imprisonment he restored the sight of the daughter of his judge. Before his execution, he wrote a letter to the daughter and signed it ‘Your Valentine’.

    The day became associated with romantic love in the times of Chaucer, when lovers expressed their feelings for each other with tokens-flowers, confectionary and greeting cards (known as Valentine’s).

    We see it today with hearts, flowers, swans and doves, cupids and cherubs amongst others.

    The First Puffin

     

    The FIRST Puffin has landed onto Skomer Island! It’s only the 19th of March and we have the first one landed-that’s early! And that means that the numbers will just grow as the days move closer towards April, which is when they usually arrive.

    Over this weekend just gone, a hundred puffins were seen rafting in North Haven, which is one of their favoured bays on Skomer.

    This is exciting news as it’s always great to know that the Puffin is growing from strength to strength 3bvbjjin numbers on Skomer.

    So, to celebrate, any booking made this week direct with us here at Fields Lodge will receive a free Puffin Pack!!

  • March……. Madness/Matness?

    Isn’t that what they say?? March is when we see the weather changing to Spring and the clocks going forward for summertime.

    The origins of the saying

    Where on earth did that saying come from? Well, here’s a spoiler-you may be disappointed! I thought I would research it, thinking it may have had some historic origin, inspiring the Mad Hatter stories etc, but no! It started life in Illinois in a high school in the early 1900s. Then the phrase was used by a broadcaster of a basket ball game. The phrase was later applied to be trademarked by the IHSA(Illinois High School Association) and in 1996 the IHSA and the NCAA went to court over the phrase and ended with them agreeing on a dual use trademark. So, as it’s a trademarked phrase-does that mean I can’t use it here??? OOOO!!! worrying! I’ve just checked, and I’m not sure I can! So, I’ve altered the title slightly, just in case! I don’t think I can afford an American lawsuit!
