Book your autumn or winter Pembrokeshire getaway

From invigorating coastal walks to cosy evenings in front of a log burner, Pembrokeshire has everything you need for a rejuvenating autumn or winter escape.

But if you need a little more convincing, here are a few reasons why the cooler months are the perfect time to book your well-deserved cottage holiday in South West Wales.

Space to explore

With fewer visitors around, you’ll have plenty of space to discover the glorious Pembrokeshire countryside. The peace and quiet will help you feel closer to nature, as well as more relaxed and well-rested. It’s also a great time to catch sight of the local wildlife, including grey seals, porpoises and migrating birds.

You’ll love breathing in that clean, fresh air, while admiring the riot of seasonal colour when the trees are ablaze with shades of orange, red and yellow. And who doesn’t enjoy that satisfying crunch of leaves underfoot and those crisp, frosty mornings as autumn moves into winter?

Bracing coast path walks

Many would argue that a walk along the renowned Pembrokeshire Coast Path is more rewarding in the autumn or winter than in the spring or summer. After all, the low season is when the coastline’s rugged beauty is at its most dramatic. Think crashing waves and misty coastal views – scenery that feels as if it’s jumped straight out of the pages of a classic mystery novel.

The weather is often very pleasant at this time of year. And, as the Scandinavians say, ‘There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes.’


Near-deserted beaches

Nothing beats wrapping up warm to take a walk on an empty (or nearly empty) beach. And here in South West Wales, we’re blessed with more than our fair share of impressive beaches, such as Whitesands, Newgale and Broad Haven.

Pembrokeshire is home to Britain’s only coastal national park. Plus, the county’s coastline has been hailed the second best coastal destination in the world by National Geographic magazine experts.

Autumn and winter is also the ideal time for your four-legged friends because the summer beach restrictions on dogs have ended by 1 October. That means your pet is free to roam across the wet sand, paddle in the surf and explore to their heart’s content.


A romantic break for two

Now is the time to book that longed-for romantic retreat in a cosy cottage where you can snuggle up in front of a log burner with a glass or two of mulled wine. And with the children back at school, you can savour this tranquil and relaxing time of year.

Lower prices

Another benefit of booking a Pembrokeshire cottage in the autumn or winter is the off-season prices. So, you can enjoy a rejuvenating stay in a quality self-catering property for an exceptionally tempting price.

Escape for Christmas or New Year

What better way to celebrate the festive season than with a magical and relaxing break in a pretty seaside cottage? You and your family can get away from the usual yuletide madness by packing your suitcase and heading to the beautiful South West Wales coast.

If you arrange a Christmas or New Year holiday with St Brides Bay Cottages, your accommodation will be adorned with decorations and a Christmas tree. And if you choose a cosy property with a log-burning stove, you’ll receive a welcome basket of logs to keep you toasty throughout your celebrations.
