A Holiday to Wales

I’ve reached the grand age of 33 and have never been to Wales! So last week we spent 4 nights in Pembrokeshire just outside Narberth in a log cabin that we booked through Hoseasons.

We’ve booked holidays in log cabins before with Hoseasons when we have stayed in Scotland. We’ve always booked an Autograph lodge which is their premium range of lodges.


We spent our time there exploring the area. We visited Tenby which is a lovely little seaside town with a harbour. The houses are so pretty and colourful too. We walked for miles all around the town, harbour and beach.

We also visited Freshwater West which is also known as the beach where Dobby dies. That’s another Harry Potter location visited. We’ve visited a few in Scotland too.

We went for a walk around the grounds of the lodge where they have a golf course, more lodges to rent and also private lodges which are owned. They had a beautiful garden and this lovely waterfall.


We spent lots of time in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park too. Pembrokeshire has a beautiful coast line and lots of lovely sandy beaches.


We had a lovely 4 days there and managed to fit lots in despite the weather being a bit grey. The lodge had a hot tub too so that was great to relax and unwind in.

When I next visit Wales I’d like to visit North Wales to see what it has to offer.

Have you ever been to Wales?

September Roundup

September seems to have been and gone in a flash and as a result I don’t feel like I’ve done much but never the less. Here is my September roundup!

Firstly in September I won a competition! I’ve never won anything before in my life so I was pretty amazed when I won this gorgeous palette on a giveaway over at Sophie’s Blog

One evening after work we decided to go to JoJo Gelato in Fareham. I had this scrummy Nutella and Cookie supreme crepe. It was so good, especially after a hard day at work.

We also visited the Waitrose Farm Shop. Here is the post about our visit.

In Lee-on-the-Solent there was a super low tide on 18th September. I’m still discovering new things about living by the sea and this was one of them. The photo doesn’t do it justice but the sea really was a lot further out than usual.

At the end of September we went to Wales for 4 nights. I’ve never visited Wales before so it was nice to explore somewhere new. There’s a more detailed post to follow.

In September I did 8 blog posts which I think might be a record for me! If you missed any, they’re linked below:
