September Seals and Savings with Coastal Cottages of Pembrokeshire

There are many reasons to visit Pembrokeshire in September – prices are cheaper, roads are less congested and beaches quieter – but there is also the opportunity to observe hundreds of Atlantic grey seals which give birth to their single pups on quiet beaches throughout the county.

One of the best places to see ‘mums and babies’ is the Marloes Peninsula where the white, furry pups spend their first three weeks on shore, feeding and sleeping.  Mother seals come ashore to feed their pups three or four times a day and after about three weeks the pups are left to fend for themselves, but return to shore regularly for rests.

Seals are easily disturbed so it is advised to be as quiet and inconspicuous as possible.  They must never be approached closeup and, if disturbed, mothers will keep away and the pubs will miss their feeds or may even be abandoned.

For those wishing to observe the seals and their babies, Coastal Cottages of Pembrokeshire is highlighting a selection of properties on the Marloes Peninsula.

These include Kittiwake Cottage, a detached house in the village of Marloes sleeping eight in four bedrooms (one en suite).  This spacious property – perfectly placed for ‘seal spotting’ on the beaches and viewing them from the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path – is set in enclosed gardens and is just a stroll from the village shop and popular pub.  A week from 1 September is priced at £744 (saving £186) or £763 from 15 September.  Short breaks are also available.

Keeping Faith with Coastal Cottages of Pembrokeshire

Already a huge success on BBC Wales and a massive iPlayer hit, Keeping Faith – a Carmarthen-set thriller series – has now hit the screens of BBC1 each Thursday evening.

The drama stars Eve Myles as Faith.  She is a lawyer, wife and mother who is drawn into a mystery when her husband and business partner, Evan, disappears.

It does for Carmarthenshire (where most of it was filmed) what Broadchurch did for Dorset. Filming was mainly around Laugharne – a town on the south coast and was once the home to the poet Dylan Thomas – the beautiful town of Carmarthen, plus locations along the jaw-dropping coastline.

For those who wish to explore Carmarthenshire, Coastal Cottages of Pembrokeshire – located just across the county border – features a selection of properties including, for example, The Great House.  This is a superbly restored grand Georgian town house in Laugharne – with an outdoor heated swimming pool – which sleeps 10.  Prices for seven nights in September start at £1345.

Or Ty Dyffryn is a beautiful barn conversion set in 35 acres of park and farmland on the edge of the Brechfa Forest and just a 10-minute drive from Carmarthen.  It sleeps four in two bedrooms and costs from £454 for a week’s holiday in September.
