    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.

    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.

    January Blues?

    Are you suffering from January blues? Apparently, January is the busiest month for divorce applications, with people getting to their ‘last straw’ over the Christmas period and of course, inevitably, people have overspent and it’s a long time until January pay day at the end of the month as many companies do pay December salary a little earlier, which is great for Christmas but just adds to the pain in January.

    Walking in Winter

    Walking in Winter in Pembrokeshire is as good as pleasure as in the summertime-the coast takes on a moody veil and the weather is sure to make you feel alive. So, as long as you are well prepared, there’s no need to leave walking until the sun comes out!

    Walking in Winter Checklist

    Personally I do not advocate walking when the weather is bad-howling rain and gales, but I think there’s nothing nicer than a fresh winter morning for a walk across the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, which, just so happens to be on our doorstep. And, as it is winter, you do need to take a few extra precautions, just incase the weather does change quickly.
